ZAMBOANGA CITY, Philippines – Kris Aquino disclosed here on Monday that it would be the Philippines’ international singing sensation Charice Pempengco who will sing the national anthem during her brother President-elect Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III’s inauguration on June 30.
Kris made this announcement after saying last week that the task of singing the national anthem during the inauguration was a toss-up between “Journey” lead vocalist Arnel Pineda and Charice.
Kris and elder sister Viel Aquino-Dee were in town to thank Zamboangeños for the support they gave their brother in the last elections.
They also came to Zamboanga to distribute school supplies to nearly 200 special children in 2 public schools Monday morning.
Viel also said they are expected to announce the complete list of Cabinet secretaries before the week ends.
Children from Sta. Maria Central School thanked the Aquino sisters for finding time to visit them. They also wrote a letter intended for the president-elect.
In the letter, they expressed their dreams and expectations from the new president, from fixing their broken arm chairs to giving their parents jobs.
