Sanchez, whose mother is from the Philippines, said she is excited to return to the country, where she was mobbed by adoring fans during the American Idol group tour that ended in Manila last year.
“It was crazy. I didn't expect that much love. They give me lots of love but I never expected it to that level. They just surrounded me with it, drowned me in it. I loved it. I can’t wait to go back and see their faces again,” said Sanchez.
The 17-year-old singing sensation from Chula Vista, California is also excited about her upcoming single which is expected to be released in February.
“Since the Idol tour started that’s when I started actually recording. I just got finished, I want it to be perfect for all the fans and we got to that point so the single will be coming out next month. I’m excited for the fans and the sound, for what they’re about to hear,” added Sanchez.
Dubbed “Jessica Sanchez Live In Concert!,” the show will feature selections Sanchez will sing for her fans during the concert, from her new album. She said her fans in Manila will be the first to hear the songs during the show.
The petite singer has been gracing important events since returning from Manila where she and the top winners of American Idol staged a show to cap the American Idol season 11 concert tour.
Sanchez, who was guest performer during the National Democratic Party convention last September, joined popular American actor George Clooney at Annual black-tie Carousel Ball in Hollywood recently.Read more:
