Jessica Sanchez returns for Valentine’s concert

Due to the clamor of millions of Pinoy fans, international singing sensation Jessica Sanchez is coming back to perform at a major concert that will spotlight her in her first solo act on Feb. 14 at the Smart Araneta Coliseum, Cubao, Quezon City.

“Jessica Sanchez Live In Concert!” is in fulfillment of the promise made by the 17-year-old Fil-Mexican singer to return following her successful debut performance in Manila last year, together with her fellow Top 10 finalists on Season 11 of “American Idol” (AI)  where she won second place.

To be featured as special guest  is Jessica’s fellow AI finalist Colton Dixon, who has earned some degree of popularity himself in Manila, especially among female fans, since his initial appearance here.

The one-night gig is expected to stir another massive outpouring of joy, pride and affection from her fans as they welcome her back  five months after she and her fellow AI finalists rocked  the Big Dome on Sept. 21, 2012.

Since her AI stint, Jessica has been involved in a flurry of activities during a whirlwind season that kicked off with a 45-day US tour with her fellow AI Top 10 finalists, and culminated with the Smart Araneta Coliseum concert in the stellar cast’s first Asian engagement.

On Sept. 5, 2012, she took the stage with  DJ Cassidy and Brandon Marshalls and other big-name artists at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina, where her soulful rendition of Marvin Gaye’s “All I Need To Get By” brought the house down.

Recently, she made waves with the release of the music video for “Jump In,” featuring apl.de.ap of the Grammy Award-winning hip-hop group Black Eyes Peas.   Shot in the Philippines last September, the fun, danceable video first went online in October before being officially launched on Dec. 2, 2012, on radio, television and online.

Expected to be released this month is the first single for her debut album for 19 Recordings/Interscope Records,   to be followed by the launch of a CD in March or April.

Jessica’s star continues to sparkle with her forthcoming appearance in a multiple-episode story arc on the fourth season of   “Glee,”  the hit musical-comedy-drama television series on Fox Television, where she will play the lead of a rival show facing off against New Directions in the regional competitions.

“Jessica Sanchez Live In Concert!” is produced by Ovation Productions and made possible by ETC, 2nd Avenue, Diva Universal, Jack  TV, RJ 100.3 FM, History Channel, Discovery Channel and Edsa Shangri-la Manila.  Media partners: Manila Bulletin, The Philippine Star, BusinessWorld, PhilStar.com, Inquirer.net, Monster Radio RX 93.1, Mellow 94.7, Easy Rock 96.3 and 97.9 Home Radio.   Tickets are priced at: P10,560 – Patron VIP (reserved seating), P8,976 – Patron (reserved seating), P6,864 – Lower Box VIP (reserved seating), P5,808 – Lower Box  Regular (reserved seating), P3,907 – Upper Box A (reserved seating), P2,851 – Upper Box B (free seating), and P792 -General Admission (Free Seating).
