Jessica Sanchez sings National Anthem Before Weather Cancels Memorial Day Concert

American Idol 2012 Jessica Sanchez

American Idol 2012 runner-up Jessica Sanchez was a part of this past weekend’s Memorial Day Concert in Washington, D.C., and she was able to get through the opening National anthem before bad weather took over and forced officials to abort the concert.

American Idol alum Chris Daughtry and his band had taken the stage and was interrupted as the announcement was made that attendees should start heading out. The show was later halted altogether.

Jessica was set to perform again later along with other acts like Natalie Cole and Trace Atkins. Luckily, we’ve got Jessica’s performance of the National Anthem before the severe weather really moved in after the jump.
