Formerly known as Charice Pampengco, who you will remember as the vocal force Sunshine Corazon in Glee, now officially goes by a different identity.
The Filipino singer now goes by the name Jake Zyrus!
The name Jake is now used on all his social media accounts, and all old posts have been deleted.
Taking to twitter, he wrote, “My first tweet as Jake. Overwhelmed. Saw all your love comments and I'm so happy. Finally. I love you, everyone and see you soon,” and has since received an outpour of love and support from followers.
This news doesn’t come as a huge shock.
In 2014, Jake (then Charice), sat down with Opera Winfrey to discuss her homosexuality and ‘male soul’.
“Basically my soul is male… I’m not going to change my body. I’ll cut my hair and wear boy clothes, but that’s all.”

Congratulations on this life-changing leap into becoming your true self, Jake!
