Tujan: American Idol live in Davao

AMERICAN Idol finalist Jessica Sanchez still gives us goosies seven years after finishing as runner-up. Her SMX Convention Center concert was not full-packed despite a powerhouse line–up of singers which include Bugoy Drillon, Daryl Ong, and Mark Mabsa last December 21, 2018, yet they managed to entertain the crowd like no other, with Jessica still strongly affirming her fan base in the country. It was no longer surprising that Sanchez was patronized by both young and adult fans, as she sang mostly popular hits, mostly her audition pieces at American Idol.

Sanchez sauntered onstage and lost no time in opening the concert with songs like “Endless Love”, “I’ll Be There”, “Proud Mary”, “Christmas Medley”, “Bohemian Rhapsody”, “Turn the Beat Around”, and “Perfect” while narrating her harrowing journey in the Idol stage, how she managed the tension and pressure that comes with it.

“I started in ‘American Idol’ when I was only 16. The experiences I have been through my whole life have been surreal for me. It was such a huge blessing,” Sanchez excitedly told her Davao fans. Up to this day, the charming lass is grateful for the great experience she got from American Idol.

During her press conference at Pidok’s Matina, she said she loves the idea of always been warmly received every time she visits the Philippines and she cannot be any happier.

Sanchez’ crystal clear voice and her stratospheric notes, claimed her niche in show business, as she adds, “I will pretty be here, a little bit longer.” And I could not agree more.
