MANILA, Philippines – Filipino-Mexican-American singer Jessica Sanchez denied rumors that she will be Jennifer Lopez’s front act when the former “American Idol” judge holds her concert in the Philippines.

"American Idol" runner-up Jessica Sanchez denies she will join Jennifer Lopez in her concert in November.

In an interview with ABS-CBN News, Sanchez said there’s totally no truth to that report.

“That’s just a rumor,” she said.

Lopez is set to hold a concert at the SM Mall of Asia Arena on November 26.

Meanwhile, Sanchez said she would love to have her own solo concert here in the country when she comes back next year.

“Maybe next time, maybe next year. That would be fun,” she said.

Sanchez will be leaving for Los Angeles this week to continue working on her album which will be released by the end of year.

Endorsing Jollibee

Meanwhile, Sanchez said she is delighted to be part of another brand that is known to all Filipinos around the world.

"American Idol" runner-up Jessica Sanchez is the first international endorser of Jollibee.

“Amazing. It’s been an amazing experience for me, to be able to come here. This is the first time to go out of the States and it’s the Philippines and I’m endorsing a Filipino stuff. This is one of the biggest Filipino brands so I’m definitely excited to be part of the Jollibee family,” she said.

Sanchez said she is glad to endorse something that she is really familiar with even when she is back in the United States.

“We’ve been there a couple of times. We had a lot of Chickenjoy and spaghetti there so I’m very familiar with Jollibee,” she said.

The 17-year-old singer said it is nice to know that she is sharing the same values as that of the food chain’s campaign.

“I feel so blessed and so lucky to be a part of such a big company, a big brand name. This brand is so family oriented, my family is so family oriented. It means a lot to me to share that kind of love between me and my endorsements,” she explained. - from a report by Ginger Conejero, ABS-CBN News
