Fil-Am singer Jessica Sanchez was tapped to sing the campaign anthem for US Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.
According to an article published by ABS-CBN News, the 20-year-old “American Idol Season 11″ alumna recorded the song “Stronger Together”, which was written by Carole Bayer Sager, Bruce Roberts and Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds.
She shared in an interview with Billboard that she did not hesitate when she was asked to record the song although it was just a few days before the Democratic National Convention (DNC).
“It was so last minute. I went in the studio, they mixed it that night and they sent it out the next day. It’s crazy to me because I didn’t think it was going to happen that quick,” she said.
Sanchez, who also performed at the DNC in September 2012 for US President Barack Obama, said she feels honored to be a part of it again.
“Stronger Together” made its debut at the end of the DNC in Philadelphia on July 26 and was also released on iTunes.
Sanchez also believes that the message of the song is powerful. She said that with everything that is going on in our world right now, it is important for all of us to come together and stay strong.
“The message is great and it’s great for the campaign. This is the time for us to play our part and go out and vote and be stronger,” she added.
From now through November, “Stronger Together” will be primarily used for the Clinton campaign and there’s a high possibility that Sanchez may join the campaign herself to perform the song live.
