Jessica Sanchez Performs at the DNC


American Idol runner-up Jessica Sanchez performed Marvin Gaye’s “You’re All I Need to Get By” with the God’s Appointed People Choir at the 2012 Democratic National Convention. Sanchez, who isn’t old enough to vote, tweeted her thanks to the DNC after her performance was over:

Thank you so much for having me @demconvention. It was an honor to perform tonight!” – JSanchezAI11

Followed by:

Special thanks to Gods Appointed People Choir @inspirethefire. It was honor to share the stage with you tonight!”

Watch the video (which hopefully the DNC will correct to say ‘Jessica’ instead of ‘Jennifer’):
