Filipino-American and American Idol 10 finalist Thia Megia recently sang Star-Spangled Banner, the US National Anthem, in the Pacquiao vs Marquez boxing match held at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas on November 12, 2011.
"Thia Megia" trended on Twitter in the Philippines on the day of the fight. Pinoys were evidently so proud of the singer singing the American Anthem.
A WhatTheTrend.com description on why she trended said "...Thia Megia will be playing Sunshine's sister in a [sic] upcoming episode of "Glee"." But we're not so sure about that. WhatTheTrend descriptions are almost always fan-generated that sometimes they are even not related to the trending topic at all.
Come to think of it, Thia Megia on Glee is not a bad idea at all!
What's sure, though, is Thia's riding the ZhuZhu Pets Float at the Thanks Giving Parade in New York City three weeks from now. She sang the ballad One Day for the soundtrack of ZhuZhu Pets, an animated film being released this Holiday season.
