Jessica Sanchez Performs “Tonight” Acoustic Version Live on Ryan Seacrest’s show

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.

I see a big year coming for the 17-year-old American Idol runner-up (who should have won), for whom I feared there was no market. A pretty young Latina with a big mature voice… where do they appreciate that?

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.
