Charice will be singing the Phil. National anthem at the Pacquiao-Mosley fight

It is official, Charice will be singing the Philippine National anthem at the Pacquiao-Mosley fight.

Charice tweeted yesterday Charice
Thank you Sir. Manny Pacquiao for choosing me to sing the Philippine Nat'l Anthem for your fight. Feel really blessed :)
The Pacquiao-Mosley fight will be on May 7 at MGM Grand in Las Vegas.Charice returned last week on Glee and busy doing a movie with Salma Hayek, but she will clearly make some time to sing on the said big fight. 

She already sang the national anthem during the inauguration of Pres. Noynoy Aquino in Quirino Grandstand last year. Pacquiao personally handpicked Charice to sing the Philippine National Anthem. 

La Diva, Zarene Parsad, Kyla and Martin Nievera, are some of the singers who already had a chance to sing the Philippine anthem on the Pacquiao fight. Kyla received praises from the National Historical Institute (NHI) while Martin Nievera was criticized by NHI for belting and for changing the arrangement of the national anthem.   
The National Historical Institute always remind those singers that it is a violation of Republic Act No. 8491 known as Flag Law, ("The rendition of the National Anthem, whether played or sung, shall be in accordance with the musical arrangement and composition of Julian Felipe.") if they made any changes on the national anthem.
