UPDATE: Bad news for Jessica Sanchez fans in the Philippines: According to a tweet by 19 Entertainment, the American Idol runner-up WON'T be performing on a five-city tour in the country, as was previously reported. The good news: Fans can catch her at the American Idol Live tour stop in Manila on September 21!

 

American Idol Season 11 runner-up Jessica Sanchez is unabashedly proud of her Filipino heritage. This fall she’ll finally get the chance to explore her own mother’s hometown of Bataan and more of the Philippines for herself!

According to the Philippine Daily Inquirer, Jessica will embark on a solo tour of five cities in the Philippines this October, including Manila, Bataan, Ganuio, Cebu, and Davao. The mini-jaunt will take place after she and the rest of the Season 11 Top 10 do an American Idols Live tour stop at the Smart Araneta Coliseum in Quezon City, Philippines, on September 21.

Jessica’s said before that she’d like to perform the country’s national anthem, “Lupang Hinirang.” Her short solo tour of the Philippines seems like just the right opportunity!
