Charice Pempengco Sings Philippine National Anthem at Pacquiao vs Mosley Fight


International singing sensation and star of the American musical comedy-drama television series Glee, Charice Pempengco has been chosen to sing the Philippine National Anthem before the Pacquiao vs Mosley fight on May 7, 2011.

According to Michael Koncz – Manny Pacquiao’s advisor, Charice Pempengco was handpicked by no less than the pound for pound king himself.

Pacquiao said that he wanted to help Charice’s singing career even more believing that this is a big exposure for her as it will be televised worldwide.

The Philippine National Anthem is titled “Lupang Hinirang” and the National Historical Institute (NHI) will be listening intently to check if Charice complies with Republic Act 8491, or the Flag and Heraldic Code of the Philippines.

This is because in the past, several singers like Martin Nievera rendered the National Anthem in a different beat and timing which is a clear violation of the law.

The Manny Pacquiao vs Shane Mosley fight will take place at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada on May 7, 2011.

UPDATE May 7, 2011: Here’s the video of Charice Pempengco singing the Philippine National Anthem.
