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.
