Jessica Sanchez to Sing Star Spangled Banner at Pacquiao vs Bradley Fight

Jessica Sanchez to Sing Star Spangled Banner at Pacquiao vs Bradley Fight

After choosing Thia Megia to sing the US National Anthem “Star-Spangled Banner” at his last fight with Juan Manuel Marquez last November, Manny Pacquiao gets to invite another American Idol standout with Filipino blood to sing at his June 9 title defense against Timothy Bradley.

Season 11 1st runner-up Jessica Sanchez will sing the US National Anthem on fight night which will be held at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Sanchez confirmed the news with a tweet,

Singing the American National Anthem @ the Pacquiao fight this Saturday in Vegas! I am sooooooooo ecstatic!! :) [LINK]

She even posted at her Facebook account,

Singing the national anthem this saturday in Vegas for the Pacquiao fight :) so excited!!!! Btw, miss you guys ♥ [LINK]

Her selection is a no-brainer since she is the first American Idol contender with Filipino roots to make it at the top two of the popular reality singing competition.

Meanwhile, another Filipino-American will be singing the Philippine National Anthem, Broadway star Kirby Asunto.

Pacquiao first heard her sing during an offering mass before the Pacquiao vs Marquez 3 fight. She also performed at the concert after Pacquiao won the fight.

We’ll update this post later after the fight to include he video of Jessica Sanchez singing the anthem once available.

Pacquiao vs Bradley will take place, Saturday, June 9 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, LIVE on HBO Pay Per View as Promoted by Top Rank, in association with MP Promotions, Tecate, AT&T and MGM Grand.

UPDATE June 9, 2012: Watch the video here.
