Jessica Sanchez's Post American Idol Gigs and Appearances

Jessica Sanchez

I have been very vocal about my support on the two finalists of American Idol Season 11. Both of them were my favorites, but whenever people ask me whoever weighs the most in my heart, it would certainly be Jessica Sanchez. No offense to Phillip Phillips.

As of the moment, I don't really care whoever did win on American Idol or whoever did not. What matters most is whoever get the public's attention from now until the test of time proves the singer's longevity in their career. That is why I always say to people to move on and not to be bitter against the success of others. Instead, focus on what you could do to alleviate your present.

With this in mind, we move on to Jessica Sanchez, who is currently dating fellow American Idol season 11 contestant DeAndre Brackensick, and her post American Idol career:

Sanchez sang her new single, Fairytale, from her upcoming album.

You might recall, Jessica Sanchez performed The Prayer at the PBS' Memorial Day Concert as a tribute to all Americans who died defending their country. This happened last May 27, 2012, when most American's attention was focused on this celebration at the west lawn of the United States Capitol Building in Washington, D.C.

She also lead the singing of the United States' National Anthem and God Bless America during same event:

During the Pacquiao-Bradley Boxing match on May 9, 2012, she also offered Star Spangled Banner to those who defend America:

And to open the 2012 Basketball Finals Game 1 match between Heat and Thunder, she also sang United States of America's National Anthem:

Of course, Jessica Sanchez will also join fellow American Idol Season 11 contestants in their American Idols Live! Tour this year. It will start on July 6, 2012 at Detroit and will close in the city of Lille, France on October 7, 2012. But of course, it won't be complete without them stopping over the Philippines on September 21, 2012 at the Araneta Coliseum. Also, Jessica Sanchez is confirmed that she is under negotiation to be part of Glee Season 4.

It is also rumored that Jessica Sanchez is in the running to play the lead role of Kim in the upocoming film adaptation of Miss Saigon. Check out this video of Lea Salongga who once played the role in stage plays (pardon the non-English introduction of the video):

So far, Jessica Sanchez's American Idol performances were compiled into two albums namely Jessica Sanchez: Journey to the Finale, which peaked no. 1 at the US Heat charts, and American Idol: Season 11 Highlights EP, which will be released this coming July 13, 2012. She is also assumed to have signed on a record deal with Interscope Records. It was reported that she will be working with Eminem on her first album, which is reportedly due on October.
