finally manny paquiao change his mind as to who will sing our RP National Anthem in his coming bout. RnB Jay-r is supposed to sing the "Lupag Hinirang" but he told PEP that he picked Charice pempengco instead. Fans have clamoring for our international artist like, charice pempengco, leah salonga and arnel pineda and it looks like one name in the wish has been erase. I just hope that Charice will sing it well. hey mylotters, who will you choose to sing the RP National Anthem if you are given a chance to decide for it.

Just saw in yahoo a while ago that arnel pineda was singing for the fight. I think Leah would be my pick though. Charice is too shout-y for me

What the hell are they thinking in choosing JR to sing the national anthem?? good thing they already replace him with Charice. I'd rather see Charice sing there than JR...ahahah.. but anyway, it would be most pleasant if Lea Salonga sings it... else, why not try Yeng Constantino instead of JR...hahaha..^____^,V

Well I like Lea Salonga because she remained be humble and remained a Filipina attitude though she's no longer situated here. But I guess it wouldn't matter if who will sing as long as Manny would win the fight... LOL

I actually have read this on the paper this morning and yeah Charice is deserving enough to have a chance to sing it and i hope she will do it well because frankly speaking whoever will sing the national anthem will get criticized no matter what they do....people will say something bad about the performance...but the honor will be hers and i wish her good luck..and that goes for manny too.

I sure hope that she can make our country proud once again. And I hope that she is a lucky charm for Manny. It's another fight, and I know that all of us would be stuck in the house waiting for the fight, it's another one of those things that Filipinos actually understands each other, and get together for one cause, which is Manny Pacquiao. hehehe.

hi lienrose, I want melisa of pbb sing the national anthem lol just kidding.. Charice is ok with me, But I would love if Leah and Arnel Pineda will sing the national Anthem. PAcquio is a GMA talent and in most cases the one who sungs the national anthem are a GMA talent. Good to hear they let charice sing it. I think she is better than JR. Have a great night.. and Goodluck to pacquio..

hmmm, well charice is good but i always wanted to see & hear leah salonga singing our national anthem again... i just hope that charice will do well and sing it from her heart and don't think as if she's in the concert stage... well anyway, i just wish for everything to turn good and for Pacquiao to win once again!

I would prefer Leah Salonga. However, Charise is a very good singer. I just hope that there will be no controversy on how our singers sing the national anthem. There are a lot more problems here in the Philippines that they need to focus on rather than to criticise our artists.

It doesn't really matter who will sing in that event for as long as they would sing it well. There were times that when they sang it they went off tune but then what can you do they are already there.
