Singing the Philippine National Anthem has always been a critical issue whenever it will be sang during Manny Pacquaio fights. Most of the artist chosen uses the "birit" technique at the end part and it becomes wrong according to National Historical Institute.

Now, Youtube singing sensation and Kapamilya talent Maria Aragon was chosen to sing the Philippine national anthem.
American Idol finalist Thia Megia will sing the USA national anthem “Star Spangled Banner,” in Manny Pacquaio’s fight against Juan Miguel Marquez on November 12 in Las Vegas. Maria Aragon and Thia Megia was chosen by Manny Pacquaio.
Megia was the first to confirm that she will be singing in Pacquiao’s upcoming bout. “I met him last night. It was amazing. I got to sing the national anthem for him last night (Saturday). He told me that I will be singing in his next fight,” Megia said in a TV interview.
Maria Aragon even visited the National Historical Institute (NHI) to learn the right way of singing before she went back to her hometown in Canada. Lets see how will Aragon succeed her way to sing it?
