Leading wireless services provider Smart Communications, Inc. (Smart) has scheduled a lineup of events for American Idol runner-up and Filipino-American vocal powerhouse Jessica Sanchez who will be back in Manila for a series of shows and activities that will culminate in a Valentine’s concert for her Filipino fans.

“We are happy to once again have the talented Jessica Sanchez in our country and we are proud that she’s doing a great job embodying Smart’s ‘Jump In’ philosophy,” said Emmanuel Lorenzana, Smart’s executive vice president and head of wireless consumer division.

The international singing sensation, who also is the company’s latest youth ambassador, will “spread the message of positivity and empowerment” as expressed in her Smart Jump In music video with fellow Pinoy global icon and Smart ambassador of the Black Eyed Peas.

“I’m happy to be sending a message out to kids my age to just live life and have fun, have no worries and just go for what you want,” said  Jessica Sanchez in an interview during the making of her Smart Jump in music video which, as of this writing, is nearing 1 million views on YouTube.

Jessica will be involved not only in performing and interacting with fans but also in supporting Smart’s advocacies for the youth. For the duration of her visit, she is scheduled to drop by a public elementary school to join a storytelling session to help young kids read better.

On February 11, 3 p.m., Smart will be holding a grand fans day at the SM North EDSA Skydome entitled “Jump In Bash with Jessica Sanchez.” She will also join the Smart Jump In school tour at the University of Sto. Tomas. Smart will also bring the young achiever to the University of the Philippines for an appearance at the 2013 UP Fair.
