Pinoy international pop singer, Charice Pempengco has been given the honor to sing the Philippine National Anthem at the Pacquiao vs Mosley boxing match on May 7 at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Team Manny Pacquiao has confirmed that Charice will be singing “Lupang Hinirang” as requested by Pacman himself. This definitely adds another feather on her cap.
It can be remembered that Charice has also sang the Philippine National Anthem during President Noynoy Aquino’s inauguration at the Quirino Grandstand. Many singers and celebrities have received criticisms from the National Historical Institute for singing the anthem not approved by them, but Charice has earned praises from her previous duty.
Currently, Charice is busy becoming a Hollywood actress as she films with Salma Hayek in a movie entitled “Here Comes the Boom.” She now has a single entitled “Before It Explodes” which was produced by singer Bruno Mars.
