Viva Princess Sarah Geronimo and Anne Curtis shared the Araneta concert stage last January 28 for the latter’s Annebisyosa: No Other Concert. Both homegrown talents of Viva Entertainment and ABS-CBN, the Popstar Princess and Princess of All Media rocked the Big Dome by singing Aerosmith’s I Don’t Wanna Miss A Thing.
Concert attendees would agree that their duet had the most astounding cheers. Anne deserves a pat on the back for giving out her best while singing with Sarah. The Popstar Princess even asked for advices on how to hit the high notes. “Pwede mo ba kong turuan? Pa’no i-hit yung mga high notes na yun? Effortless nagagawa mo,” Sarah said.
On the other hand, Anne recognized Sarah as one of the country’s best concert performers. She welcomed her by saying, “The true Concert Princess, Ms. Sarah Geronimo!”
After their duet, Sarah had her solo performance of End of Time-Let’s Dance mash-up. Everyone was in awe when the Popstar Princess danced with the GForce dancers and sang such an upbeat song at the same time. Anne’s friend Divine Lee couldn’t help but tweet how superb Sarah was. “Nakakaloka… First time to hear Sarah Geronimo. Iba siya. May sanib. Galeng!”
Divine had a couple of tweets about Sarah but this one was the most striking. “@SGeronimo25 after ur performance… I’m ur new BIGGEST fan. Tatayo nako ng fans club. :)”
Nevertheless, Sarah also praised Anne for such a fantastic concert. For her, it was an honor to be part of the legendary Annebisyosa: No Other Concert. “Karangalan talaga na maging bahagi ng first major solo concert mo. Marami pa ‘to Anne.”
The Popstar Princess admires Anne for her dedication, passion and confidence. “Talagang si Anne, bihira kang makakita ka ng mga tao na ganun yung dedication niya at passion niya talaga for music. At saka yung kanyang confidence.”
In fact, Sarah is inspired to how fearless Anne is. “Nai-inspire ako sa kanya sa pagiging fearless niya, yung bravery niya kapag nagpe-perform siya. Ako talaga, totoo ‘to, sobra akong inspired kay Anne sa galing niya.”
She also compliments her co-Viva artist for being beautiful inside and out. “Alam mo si Anne, isa sa mga taong hinahangaan ko dito sa industriya kasi hindi lang talaga siya dyosa ng kagandahan, dyosa rin ng kagandahan ng loob.”
Both excellent in acting, performing, and hosting skills, what do you think makes Sarah Geronimo distinct from Anne Curtis?
Despite the glitz and glamour of her showbiz life, the country’s Popstar Princess chooses to be simple and humble. For Sarah Geronimo, the best things in life are free. Spending time with her family, friends, and fans is something she would never ever get tired of.
“My family and fans remind me that the best things in life are the moments you spend with the people you love. Aside from the opportunity to be in this industry, I feel most blessed to still get to spend happy times again and again with my loved ones and enjoy the things I’ve always loved especially when I can afford to have them more often.”
In a press conference for Jollibee’s newest “affordelicious” offer, Sarah shared that her fans, aka the Popsters, are very thoughtful and caring. “Very thoughtful, caring at napaka-sweet nila. Alam nila yung gusto ko. Siyempre, nagugulat din ako. Pero thank you, thank you!”
Oftentimes, Sarah would be hesitant in receiving their gifts because she doesn’t want her fans to spend money just for her. “Alam mo, every time na nagshoo-shooting ako or nagte-taping, ako na yung nahihiya para sa kanila na tumanggap ng regalo kasi sabi ko hindi naman ako kailangan bilhan ng regalo. Siyempre napapagastos pa sila pero I realized na iyon na rin yung joy nila.”
Aside from spending precious moments with her family and fans, Sarah’s forever passion is singing. “Of course, singing has always been my passion. Performing on stage, yan talaga yung sistema ko na kahit nasa kwarto ako at nasa CR, nagpe-perform pa rin ako.”
The Popstar Princess said that she would continue bringing smiles to Filipinos through her singing. “Katulad nga ng sinabi ko kanina, hinding-hindi ko yan pagsasawaan gawin dahil sa inyo, dahil sa mga naniniwala sa’kin, dahil sa mga nai-inspire na tao, mga napapasaya ko. Hindi siya [singing] nakakapagod gawin ever.”
Sarah also revealed that one of her favorites, ever since she was a kid, is Jollibee’s Chickenjoy. She also considers this delish as a bonding moment with her loved ones. “Bonding moments natin with our family, friends and loved ones, mas sumasarap talaga yung moments natin with them kapag kumakain tayo ng napakasarap na Chickenjoy.”
With her simple joys in life, do you agree that Sarah Geronimo is indeed a beautiful person in and out?
Sabi nga nila, it’s better late than never! Kahit lumipas na ang holiday season, sama-sama pa ring nag-celebrate ng isang Christmas party ang Popsters, siyempre kasama ang kanilang idol.
Matagal nang nakaplano ang celebration ngunit dahil sa ilang di inaasahang commitments ng Popstar Princess, na-reschedule ang party. Pero dahil mahal ni Sarah ang kanyang fans, pinilit pa rin niyang isingit sa kanyang hectic schedule ang isang gabi para sa kanila.
At last, natuloy na nga last January 19 ang pinakahihintay na party with Sarah Geronimo. Pagkatapos ng celebration, hindi pa rin matanggal ang ngiti sa mukha ng Popstar Princess. “Napakasaya. Sobrang enjoy! Enjoy ako, enjoy lahat. Dami naming nakain.”
Naganap ang party sa Imo’s Pancit Malabon restaurant nila Sarah sa may Mindanao Avenue. Matapos ang kainan, nakipagkantahan, nakipagsayaw ng ‘dougie’, at nakipaglaro si Sarah sa kanyang mga fans.
Para sa Popstar Princess, highlight ng event ang kanyang duet with Tita Cristy at Ate Mhel. Matagal na raw pala niyang gustong maka-duet ang kanyang fans. “Highlight yun ng party. Siyempre, first time yun na naka-duet ko sila Tita Cristy saka sila Ate Mhel. Dapat noon pa, pero I’m glad na nagawa namin siya that night.”
Sinulit na talaga ni Sarah ang gabing iyon para makipag-bonding sa kanyang mga fans. At kung siya raw ang tatanungin, gusto niyang mas madalas pang mangyari ang ganung pagsasama-sama, kahit hindi Pasko. “Sabi ko nga sana kahit hindi Christmas, magawa namin ulit yun ng sama-sama. Tapos mag-grow pa yung relationship namin ng Popsters saka ng ibang followers.”
Bukod sa kanyang pamilya at sa kanyang passion in singing, mahal na mahal ni Sarah ang kanyang mga fans. Kaya naman lubos ang pasasalamat niya sa kanyang fans na nagsisilbing inspirasyon niya.
“Mahal ko kayo. Mahal na mahal ko kayong lahat. At maraming salamat sa lahat ng suporta nyo, sa lahat ng pag-intindi, sa pagiging understanding. Sa patience, sana magtagal pa po tayo.”
Kayo, gaano n’yo kamahal ang Popstar Princess Sarah Geronimo?
New year, new life, and new show! As early as January, a lot of changes can be seen in the Popstar Princess’ aura. The press people are witnesses to the exuberating glow from her eyes and smiles. In the thanksgiving party held last January 18 at Imo’s Pancit Malabon restaurant, Sarah revealed the things she looks forward to this 2012.
First off, Sarah Geronimo is set to do a musical variety show on ABS-CBN every Sunday night, which would start this coming February. “Very happy po ako sa concept nung show,” shared Sarah. Though the final timeslot for the program still isn’t confirmed, rumors are circulating that it will replace Vice Ganda’s Sunday show.
The show would carry the Popstar Princess’ name just like Megastar Sharon Cuneta’s talk-variety program. Entitled “Sarah G Live!,” Sarah shared that she was at first hesitant to do the show. “Siyempre ho, nung una ayoko, natatakot ako. Kasi sariling show ko na ‘yon, e, saka malaking responsibility ‘yon sa akin as an artist.”
But eventually, she took the challenge and considered it as a blessing. “Napakagandang blessing nito at another challenge para sa akin para mag-grow as an artista and as a person. So, ba’t ko tatanggihan?”
However, the new show requires her to temporarily leave ABS-CBN’s ASAP 2012. Fans would definitely miss her in the show, especially her performances in the segment, SOS (Sarah on Stage). Nevertheless, Sarah assures her fans that she would appear for ASAP on special occasions. “Pag may mga guestings, shows, projects na kailangang i-promote, babalik tayo sa ASAP.”
Sarah added that she also needs ample time to prepare for her new show. “Siyempre, ito pong show na gagawin natin, yung Sarah G Live, talaga pong malaking preparation po ito, e. Parang concert po ito sa Araneta talaga.” “Sarah G Live!” is definitely something to watch out for every Sunday night!
Do you think this new show, Sarah G Live!, would bring out Sarah Geronimo’s hosting skills?
