Zyrene Parsad to sing Philippine National Anthem for Pacquiao-Margarito Bout in Texas

The November 13th Manny Pacquiao-Antonio Margarito WBC junior middleweight title event figures to be a lively occasion. Aside from seeing the world’s premier fighter going up against his most physically challenging foe, fans will be treated to a solid undercard featuring the likes of former middleweight champion Kelly Pavlik, Cuban standout Guillermo Rigondeaux and an interesting welterweight scrap between Mike Jones and Jesus Soto Karass.

Las Vegas-based Top Rank promotions certainly knows how to host a party and word has also recently spread that young songstress Zyrene Parsad will likely be singing the national anthem on the night of the 13th at the request of Pacquiao. The General Santos City fighter was reportedly impressed with Parsad’s rendition of the national anthem during the recent Saranggani’s investors’ night at the New World Hotel and asked her to sing the anthem in his fight. Just like that Parsad has the opportunity of a lifetime in front of her.

Parsad is known by many for her involvement on GMA Network’s ARE YOU THE NEXT BIG STAR?, where she finished in third place. As reported by various outlets, Parsad has been running everyday and swimming to strengthen her vocal chords for the event.

It should be noted that the singing of “Lupang Hinirang” has been the center of controversy in recent events, including Martin Nievera’s version at Pacquiao’s May 2009 blowout over Ricky Hatton. Parsad said she will be contacting Teddy Atienza of National Historical Institute on all particulars relating to the expectations of her performance.

There are always several subplots in every notable boxing event. While November 13th will be a chance for Pacquiao to win a title in a record 8th weight division, it will be business as usual in many regards for the 31 year old fighter. It is actually Parsad who will have the chance to also elevate her career to new heights, as the world will surely be watching.
