Thia Megia trends #4 Worldwide on Twitter!!! & Glee?

Yes, she gave a rendition of the United States Anthem during the Pacquaio-Marquez fight that caught the attention of twitter world.

But that's not the only reason she trended, on the same day PR NEWS released Press Release announcing that she will grace the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade on Nov 24, 2011. She will be part of the Zhuniverse Float and will be featured singing One Fine Day. She will be the 3rd Filipina to be featured on the annual Thanksgiving festivies televised to 100 Million Americans after Anna Marie Perez de Tagle and her friend Charice.

Funny how the trend also garnered rumors about her being on Glee as Sunshine Corazon's little sister, although its unverified it made the Whatatrend descriptions.

Jacob Lusk, Stephano Langone and Naima Adedapo was on hand to show her the support she needs as they tweeted after her rendition was broadcasted.

Thia was on hand during the weighin on Friday and gave an Interview to Philippine News:

Thia Megia tapped for Bay Area Tree Lighting Ceremony

Thia Megia fresh from her stint in her ancestral homeland's American Idol Manila Live Tour have been tapped for several cultural events.

First she will be singing the US national anthem for the Pacquaio vs Marquez bout on Oct. 25, 2011 in Las Vegas.

This event is significant since it was brought about by her chance meeting and subsequent on the spot audition for the pound for pound king Manny Pacquaio.

Next is the published 10th annual Tree Lighting event in Santana Row, San Jose where she is the the featured artist and grand marshall for the event.
Santana Row is the most trendiest place to shop in the Bay Area, (akin to Rodeo Drive in LA) where it serves residents of San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara and the East Bay community. It is located smack in the middle of "Little Philippines" where 1.5 Million residents are of Filipino heritage.

American Idol officialy have started to let the Philippine public know about what the top 11 will be doing prior to Sept. 20 & 21 American Idol concert.

The Official American Idol Meet and Greet will be held on Sept. 18 & 19 for 4 hour each.





To those who are unfamiliar with Philippine Meet and Greet events, it is usually held for public viewing in 1 of the bigger malls in the country. However in order to meet the Idols and get thier signature, the person needs to buy so so worth of merchandise to have an exclusive M&G, signature and picture taken with the celebrity.
In this case the sponsoring company is Odessey the biggest Music store in the Philippines.

Also since this is a M&G for 11 Idols, Im sure it will wreak havoc trying to get all the patrons time to meet all in 1 seating.

Here is an example of a M&G for American Idol David Archuleta.

Thia Megia, the Disney & Fil-Am Indie Connection

It's funny how the picture above summarized Thia Megia's run on American Idol. Numerous blog and discussion forums have credited her singing Vannesa Williams Disney song "Colors of the Wind" while being in character as the culmination of this "Disney Princess" like title among the avid Idoloonies.

Nothing can be further from the truth as she proves over the American Idol finale just what kind of "Princess" she would be, an Asian American Pop Princess.

However, born in the region where the Fil-Americans have succeeded in getting Disney to believe in their innate talents and enabling the Cross cultural music industry to penetrate the mainstream, Thia surely has history riding on her shoulders.

Northern California from Salinas all the way to the northern reaches of Nevada and Washington state have always been the bastion of the Filipino American Community. It is home to the largest Filipino community in the USA Regionally speaking. It is not surprising that the current crop of Disney stars of Filipino heritage have been from Northern California.

Vanessa "Guangco" Hudgens - Born in Salinas, California was discovered in a Rodeo singing contest in the Central Valley before being signed up by Disney for her role in the High School Musical series.

Here she is discussing the dreaded filipino food BALOT.

Anna Maria Perez De Tagle - Born in San Francisco, California. She is best known for portraying Ashley Dewitt, the antagonist opposite Miley Cyrus's Hanna Montana as well as Demi Lovato's Camp Rock series.

Like Thia, Anna Maria have been competing in singing competitions around the Bay and eventually CBS Star Search where she was defeated by American Idol runner up David Archuleta.

Jasmine Marie Villegas - Born San Jose, California of Filipino-Mexican heritage and is a personal friend of Hayward born Thia Megia. Best known for being Justin Bieber's girlfriend in the Music Video "Baby".

She was once connected with Disney in a lead role for "That's So Raven" where Selena Gomez is a supporting character (onscreen sister).

Dante Basco - Born Pittsburg, California - first known for her portrayal of Rufio from the Disney Classic Peter Pan film Hook and have not subsided from his acting career since then in various film and TV sitcom.

The region is also host to Asian-American invasion of mainstream music industry led by Filipino-American musicians and vocalist.

Jocelyn Enriquez - Born Ssn Francisco, CA - Fil-Am Pop sensation in mid 1990's generating hits like I've Been thinking of You, A Little Bit of Ecstasy and Do you Miss me.

Buffy - Born San Franciso Bay Area, CA - Followed Jocelyn Enriquez's lead in conquering the airwaves with hits like Give me a Reason

One Vo1ce - Vallejo, Californa - for all of those K-pop addicts, the originals are the Filipino-Americans of Norcal in an all girl group RNB/hiphop long before there was 2ne1, Wonder Girls and SNSD.

The above are just a few of the musicians who created the 1st Asian-American mainstream invasion. Others like Pinays, Innerlude, Kai, Devotion and others showed America a tiny segment of the Pinoy spirit.

Thia Megia is here to conquer and continue the legacy, I'm sure of it.

Glee: Will Thia Megia get a slot on Season 3?

The picture above would have just gone over the head of just about everybody else, until you analyze it with the picture below:

Glee guest star Charice who incidentally is Thia's close friends for 2 years now had a photo shoot for her CD booklet wearing the recognizable Vocal adrenaline outfit months before Fox announced her inclusion in the high rating High School Musical GLEE.

Now looking back on the first picture where Thia is definitely wearing a New Direction inspired outfit, is she next? who had an interview with Thia a couple of days ago, reported that Glee is introducing 2 new characters for season 3:

two new female students will enroll at McKinley High this fall with one character having the quality of big stars.

The Description of these new characters are reminiscent of Thia (at least for me)

The said character is described as "Adele meets Susan Boyle

The other newbie is Rebecca who is described as a beautiful student who can sing all kinds of music.

Read the report HERE

I know this is fishing for a fish in a dried pond, but what if?

If Thia can audition, she should do this if its not offered to her already. Remember its on the same network where American Idol reigns!

Thia Megia on a Fun filled Memorial Weekend

Thia seems to be very busy lately between school work and the rehearsals for the upcoming American Idol Summer Tour.

While the Top 5 Scotty McCreery, Lauren Alaina, Haley Reinhart, James Durbin, Jacob Lubsk crisscrosses the country landing first in Atlanta to open Microsoft store then flying over to Disneyworld in Florida for the American Idol experience, the remaining idols went out on their separate gigs during memorial weekend.

Naima Adedapo - Appeared on Reggae Show post Finale
Pia Toscano - Appeared on the PBS Memorial Day Special
Stephano Langone - Recorded some tracks (presumably for his album) before flying back home to Washington State
Paul Mcdonalds - Spend time with Girlfriend Actress Nikki Reed getting a tat

But what about our Thia you might ask?

Well after being interviewed by TVline: Idoloonies she apparently flew back home as she tweeted a picture of her at the offices of San Joaquin Magazine back in Central Valley receiving her copy of the June 2011 issue where she is the Cover girl.

I need to drive down to Novato to get a copy myself.

During the Memorial Weekend after the finale, Thia celebrated the holiday with family as well as the Birthday of his 13 year old nephew.

She really gets into the Kung-Fu Panda spirit don't you think?

There are more pictures of her HERE

The whole American Idol cast are now re converging back in LA for rehearsals. Tour kicks off on June 6, 2011 in West Valley, Utah

Have you got your tickets yet? I know I have!
