Jessica Sanchez created quite the Twitter buzz this morning after performing the National Anthem at the White House Easter Egg Roll.
The 17-year-old American Idol alum (whose father is Mexican-American) stood beside President Barack Obama and his family as she belted out the lyrics of “The Star Spangled Banner” with tremendous feeling. We, along with the rest of those watching we’re sure, got goose bumps from the singer’s performance. After her performance, the stunning Sanchez tweeted: “Thank you @BarackObama & @FLOTUS for inviting me to the @WhiteHouse today for your #EasterEggRoll, such an honor!!!” It definitely is an honor, and we want to send a warm congrats to Sanchez on such a memorable gig!
One Twitter user commented that First Lady Michelle Obama smiled at Sanchez during the whole performance, and added, “Jessica can SANG!” We agree wholeheartedly.
