Jessica Sanchez sings ‘Ikaw’ as crowd swoons
MANILA, Philippines — American Idol season 11 runner-up Jessica Sanchez received a standing ovation when she sang her own version of the song “Ikaw” before a jampacked crowd at the Smart Araneta Coliseum in Quezon City on Thursday night.
The song “Ikaw” was popularized by megastar Sharon Cuneta.
Sanchez, who was clad in a sexy gown, made the crowd go wilder when she belted out her version of Whitney Houston’s “I will always love you”.
Sanchez then sang a song she dedicated to her dad, “Dance with my father.”
“I dedicate this song to my dad. I wish he was here,” she said.
Among those who watched Sanchez’s concert were former Chief Justice Renato Corona and wife, and former Pagcor chairman Efraim Genuino.
