The singer formerly known as Charice Pempengco, who first rose to fame as a young Filipina with a powerhouse voice, announced this week his transgender identity. The 25-year-old star had scrubbed his social media accounts when he made the announcement, changing his usernames to fit his identity and deleting all of his past photos on Instagram. Zyrus even created a Facebook page named after what he will apparently call his fans: “Jakesters.”
After the digital overhaul, the singer thanked his fans for the support on Twitter.
