This coming May 7, 2011 is the big fight between Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao and Sugar Shane Mosley. Both of them are so excited to fight not only for themselves but also for the their country and for their family. As usual, here in Philippines every time Pacquio’s having a fight the country is really cheering up for the country’s pride. Everyone is looking forward to see what kind of fight this could be. History!
Another thing Filipino’s are looking forward to is the National Anthem. Who’s gonna sing or what not. Since the fight is getting nearer, people were like asking who’s going to sing the Philippine National Anthem? Well, ask no more cause Pacquiao himself, confirmed that Charice will sing the National Anthem for his fight with Mosley. It was really him who chose Charice to sing. As we all know, Pacquiao is already a boxing superstar so he has to team up with an international Filipino as well, and that’s Charice.
Singing the National Anthem isn’t new to Charice. She has been singing the Philippine National Anthem in different occasions already. And one of these is at the Inauguration of our newly elected President, Benigno “NoyNoy” Aquino III. Her powerful voice fits the song that’s why she was chosen by the President to sing on its Inauguration. And also, the President’s sister Kris Aquino is Charice’s God Mother.
Charice has also sang the “Star Spangled Banner” when she was 16 yrs. old., in front of 57, 099 people at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles for the Dodgers’ Opening Day pregame ceremony. And it’s the largest number of attendees ever.
According to reports, Charice earned the appreciation of the National Historical Institute and critics than those past singers who sang the Anthem and changed its original arrangement on Pacquiao’s fight. It’s because Charice sang the National Anthem correctly and the real arrangement of the song is there. Singing the National Anthem is like giving respect to your own country and that’s what Charice did on singing the song on Noy’s Inauguration.
Now, Charice will sing on Pacquiao’s fight on May 7 and we can expect a very impressive performance from Charice, yet again! Let’s all support Manny and of course Charice!
