Sanchez sang the US national anthem during Pacquiao's first meeting with Bradley in June 2012, less than a month after she won second place in Idol.
The rematch will take place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada on April 13 (Manila time).
Sanchez also sang the US and Philippine anthems at the Pacquiao-Brandon Rios fight in Macau in November last year. (Sunnex)
