Jessica Sanchez has just performed for the third time the U.S. National Anthem, this time in front of basketball fans before the start of Game 1 of the NBA Finals.
Game 1 between the Oklahoma City Thunder and the Miami Heat will take place on June 12 (June 13 in Manila) at the Chesapeake Energy Arena, the Thunder’s homecourt.
Jessica was wearing a leather black mini dress that ended above her knee. It was sleeveless and high-necked and adorned with what looked like metal studs. She looked every bit a star with black high heels and her hair done with little wisps that fall on her face.
As usual Jessica wowed the crowd with her singing, especially when she did her usual melisma and reached those high notes.
After the American Idol 11 finale, where she ended as the runner-up to Phillip Phillips, she was immediately asked to sing the U.S. National Anthem in Washington for the 2012 PBS National Memorial Day Concert. Just last weekend, she also sang the same anthem before the start of the controversial Manny Pacquiao-Timothy Bradley fight in Las Vegas.
With the confidence and professionalism she’s been showing and the undeniable vocal prowess she’s exhibiting, Jessica is more than ready to conquer the world.
Watch Jessica Sanchez sing the U.S. National Anthem before the start of NBA Finals Game 1 in the video below.
Watch out for Jessica when she comes to the country for the Manila leg of the Idol tour this September 21, 2012 at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.
