American Idol 2012 runner up Jessica Sanchez has been a busy girl since the season 11 finale.
She’s been rehearsing for the Idols Live! tour, she did the Memorial Day Concert, she sang the National Anthem at the World Boxing Organization’s Welterweight Championship over the weekend and sang it again Tuesday night at the NBA Finals Game 1.
The 16-year-old singer opened the game between the Miami Heat and the Oklahoma City Thunder. In the past, the American Idol winner has performed the Star Spangled Banner during one of the games, but since Phillip Phillips is still recovering from surgery, Jessica was the likely choice. Something tells me she’s more of a National Anthem kind of singer anyway. No offense to P2.
Jessica is a natural at singing the National Anthem and we’ve got the clip from the NBA Finals game for you to hear for yourself.
