"American Idol" Season 11 runner-up Jessica Sanchez recently arrived in Manila and shared just how proud she is of her friend Jake Zyrus for being true to himself.
“I’m just really proud of Jake for coming out and being himself because that’s a very hard thing to do,” she said in an interview with "TV Patrol" aired last night, May 22.
Jake also expressed how proud he is of Jessica, saying, “Andaming talented Filipinos all over the world talaga, but ‘yung fact na si Jessica [is] well-known hindi lang dito, kundi sa buong mundo, the fact na na-recognize ‘yung talent niya, ‘yun ‘yung nakaka-proud dun.”
The two last shared the stage in a benefit concert in the US for the victims of Super Typhoon Yolanda four years ago. Jessica is set to join Jake in his upcoming concert “Music & Me,” but she’s also excited to work with other Pinoy artists while she’s in the country.
“I’m just excited to see the other performers and sing on stage with them,” she said.
