Kirby Asunto to sing the RP National Anthem in the Pacquiao-Bradley Fight

June 6, 2012 1 comment



Everyone’s excited with the upcoming Pacquiao VS Bradley Fight. Aside from the fight though Filipinos are also excited to watch Jessica Sanchez sing the US National Anthem. Would she do better than her performance during the National Memorial Day Concertlast May 27?

Aside from Jessica, a 14-year-old New York-based Filipina named Kirby Asunto is making noise in the Social Media circles. Philippine National Anthem is trending after the news came out that she will sing the Philippine National Anthem in the June 9 match of Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley.

Kirby was personally asked by Pacman himself if she would like to sing in the said match. She didn’t think twice and accepted the offer. The Pinoy boxing champ first heard her sing during an offering mass before the Pacquiao-Marquez fight last year. She also performed at the concert after Pacquiao won the fight.

Yet again, the guy with the guitar wins American Idol.  Oh well better luck to the girls next season.  I think that’s the curse of the show and is the reason why it’s n0t getting as much following as it used to.  To Phillip, congratulations!  To Jessica, the real battle starts now! Good luck on both of your careers and hope to see more Asian Americans in the next coming seasons.
