Jessica Sanchez returns to Manila


International singer and American Idol runner-up Jessica Sanchez will be in Manila for a concert this August 2015.

The concert billed as “Jessica Sanchez: Up Close and Personal Live in Manila,” will be held on Aug. 9, 8 p.m., at Chaos, City of Dreams in Parañaque. This will be her second in the Philippines after her first successful solo concert in the country last February 14, 2013 held at the Araneta Coliseum.

The US-born half-Filipino and half-Mexican singer first made a name for herself when she competed in America’s Got Talent at an early age of 11. Jessica then joined the eleventh season of America’s most popular singing competition, the American Idol and made it to the grand finals.

The Filipino pride started her career in the music industry by signing with 19 Recordings and Interscope Records. Her debut album Me, You & the Music was released on April 30, 2013 and debuted at No. 26 on the Billboard 200 chart, selling 14,000 copies in the first week.

She also appeared on the fourth season finale of Glee on May 9, 2013, playing the role of Frida Romero and performed Zedd’s Clarity and Little Mix’s Wings in the episode All or Nothing. This was followed by various stints and her latest project was her 2nd studio album in collaboration with multi-platinum producer/songwriter Mark J. Feist

Tickets for the concert are available at SM Tickets outlets at the Mall of Asia Arena (MOA), SM Cinema branches and select SM Store branches. For details, call Chaos at 0917-8863678, SM Tickets at 470-2222 or log in to
