American Idol Hopeful Jessica Sanchese Thanks San Diego for Its Support
You've seen the billboards along the highway. You've attended the watch parties. You've seen the banners asking you to vote, and by thunder, you've voted.
Last night, your efforts were rewarded yet again, as American Idol contestant Jessica Sanchese made it into to the show's Final Five. Today, in an exclusive interview with SD on the QT, Sanchese went out of her way to thank San Diego for its support.
"I want to extend my heartfelt thanks to Otay Ranch, to Chula Vista, and to all of San Diego," said Sanchese. "Your tireless support has helped bring me one step closer to getting the hell out of here and up to Los Angeles, where I can finally start to enjoy life as a pop star. Thank you again, San Diego. Without your help, I couldn't have left you behind. No matter what, I'll always be from here."
