Jessica Sanchez Gets Her First Gig

The Filipino-Mexican singer was one of the performers for the National Memorial Day Concert. It was held in Washington D.C. and a star-studded event. Among the lineup included Chris Daughtry from the past season of Idol, Grammy winner Natalie Cole, country superstar Trace Adkins and the National Symphony Orchestra. Jessica sang the American national anthem "Star-Spangled Banner."

The show got cancelled in the middle due to bad weather. PBS said, "#MemDayPBS concert cancelled half way through due to bad weather. We edited in video from yesterday's dress rehearsal to fill in 2nd half." She was supposed to sing "The Prayer" and "God Bless America".

After the show, Jessica held an online chat via ustream with her fans. She performed some parts of "Where Have You Been", "Stuttering", "Love on Top", "It Doesn't Matter Anymore", "I Will Always Love You", and "Say My Name." These were songs requested by her fans who were eager to see her perform live. 

The 16-year-old shared that she definitely wants to visit the Philippines. She said,"I'm not sure but hopefully I can visit the Philippines in the future. Eventually someday, hopefully soon."

After the PBS Memorial Day Concert, she will be flying to Orlando, Florida for her Disney World Tour.

We sure do hope she gets the chance to fly to her mom's home country despite her busy schedule. If she had the opportunity, where do you think in the Philippines should she visit first? Tell us by leaving a comment below!

    Besides Manila and Bataan, I highly recommend her to visit my province where is Batangas."Ala eh, Parine na sa Batangas" . There a lot of beautiful sceneries there like taal volcano, beaches, the food is amazing, souveniers like balisong(butterfly knife) and stuff. And learn how to speak Batangas accent... lol :-)
