Jessica Sanchez to Sing National Anthem Before NBA Finals Game 1

There’s no confirmation yet, but it looks like Jessica Sanchez will be singing the National Anthem before the first game of the NBA Finals between the Miami Heat and the Oklahoma City Thunder at Oklahoma City. The game airs on ABC at 9 pm ET.

Jessica returned a tweet from a fan announcing the appearance on twitter, and she tweeted another fan that she’s got one more big appearance before the tour begins in July.   Her appearance seems like a pretty good bet.

It’s tradition that the Idol winner (Season 5 it was 3rd place finisher, Elliot Yamin) sing the Anthem at one of the games. With Phillip Phillips recovering from kidney surgery, Jessica is the likely choice.

She’d be a the perfect choice anyway, because we know that she sings it beautifully!
