Both talented Filipinas, YouTube sensation, Maria Aragon and American Idol Season 10 finalist Thia Megia, raised the Filipino flag high singing the "Lupang Hinirang" and "Star Spangled Banner" at the Pacquiao-Marquez 3 fight in Las Vegas, November 13, 2011. 

Fil-Canadian Maria Aragon delivered the Philippine National Anthem well that even the National Historical Institute (NHI) commended her rendition, despite some diction issues. According to, the NHI will send Maria's parents an e-mail congratulating her for her performance. 

Thia Megia may have sung the American anthem but her impressive take on "Star Spangled Banner" earned her one of the spots on Twitter's Worldwide Trending Topics - proving that she wowed the whole world with her singing prowess. 

November 13 was such a great day for Filipinos! A Pacman win and young, talented Filipinas recognized with what they love best.
