MANILA, Philippines – Local clothing brand Bench has announced that “American Idol” runner-up Jessica Sanchez is the newest addition to its long list of celebrity endorsers to promote its products.

In its official Twitter and Facebook accounts on Saturday, Bench said it is proud to welcome Sanchez as part of the family.

"Let's all welcome the fashionable @JSanchezAI11 to the ever-growing @benchtm family! #JessicaSanchez4Bench," said Bench.

“We are thrilled to welcome the voice that has won the hearts of many. Truly proud to have @JSanchezAI11 part of the #Benchsetter family,” Bench added.

Sanchez is not the first "Idol" graduate to be part of Bench.

Prior to the 16-year old Filipino-Mexican-American, Bench also clinched a deal with “American Idol” Season 7 runner-up David Archuleta to be among their endorsers.

Archuleta's Bench billboards and posters can now be seen in different Bench stores nationwide.

Filipino-American "Idol" Season 3 contestant Jasmine Trias also did commercials for Bench after she placed third in the popular reality talent search.
