Beyond the Ringside: Did La Diva sing Lupang Hinirang correctly?

This is the first time Lupang Hinirang was sung by a Trio in the history of Pacman's fight. Jonalyn Viray, Maricris Garcia and Aicelle Santos, more known as La Diva sang the Philippine National Anthem in front of thousands of people in MGM Grand Garden Arena.

The blending of their voices was perfect. The reaction of the crowd was tremendous. There's only one thing I am certain, the National Historical Institute (NHI) will surely not forgive the trio for singing it "wrongly". They have changed again the tune of the last line and I will assure you that the NHI will be making an issue regarding their performance.

I believe that this issue will be included in the headlines by this week. So girls, be ready for it, you will be on the list of "Favorite Artists" of this two institution. You have chosen the path already taken by Martin Nievera last March on Pacqiao-Hatton fight.

My only question is "Why can't you sing the National Anthem the way it is?" Lea Salonga has been singing it abroad for numerous times and she never missed a tune.
