MANILA, Philippines – Who will have the honor of singing the national anthem during the inauguration of President-elect Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino?
According to Aquino’s sister, actress-host Kris Aquino-Yap, the task of singing the national anthem during the inauguration is a toss-up between Journey lead vocalist Arnel Pineda and singing sensation Charice.
Aquino-Yap said she has requested the inaugural committee to include a popular singer to join the Philippine Madrigal Singers in performing the national anthem.
“Para sa kabataan at para sa masa, maganda may Charice or Arnel [Pineda]. I’m trying my best right now to get Charice or Arnel,” she told reporters during a press briefing at the Quirino Grandstand’s VIP lounge.
