Watch: Jessica Sanchez’s Solid Acoustic Performance of “Tonight” + ‘Glee’ News
Jessica Sanchez stopped by On Air with Ryan Seacrest on Wednesday to give a stellar acoustic performance of her new single “Tonight.”

“Tonight” will appear on her debut studio album, Me, You & the Music, set to release on April 30th. “I’ve worked in the studio before, she told MTV. “But going to that next level with such high producers? It was crazy … working with Ne-Yo. Everything was such a blur and I was just a fangirl the whole time.”
Me, You & the Music features includes collaborations with Ester Dean, Sia Furler, The Underdogs, and two tracks featuring young bachetero heartthrob Prince Royce.

In any case, you can also expect to see the rising star on a couple upcoming episodes of Glee this year, including the show’s finale. “I’m playing a student from a rival school who is supposed to be a legendary diva – a powerhouse singer,” she told People.
