In the latest celebrity update, the American Idol runner-up Jessica Sanchez already confirmed that she will be going to sing the US National Anthem “Star-Spangled Banner” in the upcoming Pacquiao-Bradley fight amidst prior assumptions that she will sing “Lupang Hinirang.”
The Filipino-Mexican teen singer Sanchez expressed her excitement on singing the US National Anthem in the Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley World Walterweight Championship held at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas on June 09, 2012 (US time) through her Twitter page.
“Singing the American National Anthem @ the Pacquiao fight this Saturday in Vega! I am sooooooooo ecstatic!!:.”
As you recall in Manny’s interview, he expressed that he is one of Jessica’s biggest fan. On the other hand, Jessica also expressed her interest to sing the Philippine National Anthem if invited.
In the meantime, the Filipino-American singer Kirby Asunto from New Jersey will be the one singing “Lupang Hinirang” in the Pacquiao-Bradley fight.
