MANILA, Philippines -- Television host Boy Abunda wants to produce the Philippine concert of Filipino-Mexican singer Jessica Sanchez.

On Sunday, Abunda said on "The Buzz" that he's really proud of Sanchez, who is now part of the Top 6 of the latest season of the hit US talent search "American Idol."

"Hindi pa ito alam ni Kris (Aquino) pero sana ay mabigyan po kami ng pagkakataon na mai-produce ang concert ni Jessica Sanchez dito sa Pilipinas," Abunda said.

"She's really brilliant. Alam niyo po mga kaibigan I've seen so many contests but Jessica Sanchez is one of the best singers na aking narinig sa buong buhay ko. Ang galing,"  he added.

Abunda also asked the Filipinos to continue supporting Sanchez and to vote for her to become the first Pinoy "American Idol" winner.

"Iboto po natin si Jessica Sanchez sa 'American Idol.' Huwag po tayong papayag na hindi manalo ang batang ito because I think she is one of the best singers in the world," he said.

"So hinihikayat natin ang ating mga kababayan sa Amerika at territories sa States, cast your votes for Jessica Sanchez," Abunda said.
