Jessica Sanchez to Sing in Pacquiao-Bradley Boxing Fight
I am so sure that famous blogger Rickey would be very glad to know that Philippines' dearest American Idol 2nd placer Jessica Sanchez will be singing the US National Anthem in the upcoming Manny Pacquiao boxing fight with Timothy Bradley.
Despite Pacquiao's announcement of his intention to ask Jessica to sing the Philippine National Anthem on his Sunday fight, Jessica as a born American citizen will be singing the "The Star-Spangled Banner" instead. Surely a bad news to her Filipino fans.
According to latest Pacquiao-Bradley bout bulletin, the 16-year-old part-Filipina singer will be part of the pre-fight ceremonies and will be singing “The Star Spangled Banner” prior to the fight.
Meanwhile, another Filipino-American teenage singer, Kirby Asunto, is expected to sing the “Lupang Hinirang” for the fight at the MGM Grand Arena on Saturday, June 9 (morning of June 10 in the Philippines).
