Jessica Sanchez has just sang Star Spangled Banner and Lupang Hinirang to open the most awaited fight for this year.
Most of us would have to agree that Jessica Sanchez delivered it well and did not fail both her American and Filipino fans. Jessica Sanchez kept it simple but strong. No need for any vocal exhibitions nor any intricate belting. Her natural voice, which was known for good vibrato and control was just enough.
It was notable also that Jessica Sanchez sang the Lupang Hinirang in marching tempo ,4/4 beat. The correct way as stated by the law –“Republic Act No. 8491-SECTION 20. The observance of the flag ceremony in official or civic gatherings shall be simple and dignified and shall include the playing or singing of the anthem in its original Filipino lyrics and march tempo. “
And now that Manny Pacquiao has won via a unanimous decision score, Jessica Sanchez will surely be labeled as lucky charm. Remember that most of the performers in Pacquiao fights were associated to the boxer’s wins or losses.
Well let’s just add that feather to her cap. Win or lose, Jessica Sanchez has already given us recognition when she won as 1st runner-up in American Idol (Season 11). Jessica Sanchez is continuously making us proud by making her way to Billboard charts and the myriad of praise and admiration from the International music industry.
By the way, it was nice to see her new look. Jessica Sanchez is definitely blooming beautifully. Loved her hair color much.
