Former 'Glee' star Charice Pempengco changes name to Jake Zyrus

Powerhouse singer and former "Glee" star Charice Pempengco announced his new name will be Jake Zyrus, three years after revealing that her "soul was male."

Zyrus took to Twitter this week to share the new name with his fans and was ecstatic over the loving response.

Zyrus originally shared his truth with Oprah during her special, "Where Are They Now." Zyrus was open with Winfrey about coming out as a lesbian and the possibility of a gender transition.

"I'm not going to go through that stage where I change everything," Zyrus said at the time of the interview. "I'll cut my hair and wear boy clothes and everything, but that's all."

Zyrus continued, "I knew when I was 5. Then, when I was 10, I was like, 'Oh, that's it, I'm gay."

Since the interview, Zyrus has largely flown under the radar.

Zyrus rose to massive fame after covering hit songs like Whitney Houston's "I Will Always Love You" and "And I Am Telling You I'm Not Going" and Celine Dion's "My Heart Will Go On." The star's covers ultimately caught the attention of "Glee" and he starred on the hit FOX show as Sunshine Corazon.

Zyrus was lauded for his performances and continued to have great success with his solo album "Charice."

Fans were quick to applaud Zyrus for revealing his name this week and came to his support immediately.

"Forever grateful," Zyrus tweeted on Tuesday, thanking fans for the support. "Let's just love one another. I love you all. I really do. I reaaaaalllyyyy ddddoooo."
