Charice from ‘Glee’ to sing at Pacquiao bout


MANILA, Philippines >> Charice Pempengco of the hit TV show “Glee” says she has been chosen to sing the Philippine national anthem ahead of Manny Pacquiao’s fight against Shane Mosley in Las Vegas next month.

The Philippine-born singer, who is known best by the single name, Charice, says she’s thrilled that Pacquiao chose her to sing at the opening ceremony for the May 7 bout at the MGM Grand Garden.

The teenager tweeted Tuesday that she feels “really blessed” for the opportunity.
