A lot of fans are saying that Popstar Princess Sarah Geronimo and rock star Francisco “Bamboo” Manalac make a good pair as they performed a lot of amazing duets, including their own version of “Just Give Me A Reason” and “Iris.” The two first performed together during Sarah’s concert at the Big Dome last year followed by Bamboo’s guest appearance on Sarah G Live and later on a number on ASAP.
When asked how he feels about being romantically linked to Sarah, the former lead vocalist of the bands Bamboo and Rivermaya was quick to shy away from such showbiz queries. “I don’t even know how to answer that. I’m not ‘showbiz’ guys. I don’t know how to answer that thing. But I can say that we have great chemistry on stage, we perform well. That’s a special thing,” he said in an exclusive interview with Push.
As a musician, he’s equally amazed with their similar passions for their craft. Bamboo previously mentioned that he’s a perfectionist during rehearsals, but would just rock it out once he’s on stage. In the same way that the usually shy Sarah has always wowed her audience every time she transforms on stage. “She gives such energy to her performances and we sort of just mash it up. In fact, ‘Iris,’ that last song we did, we have never done it the same. Every single time it’s different. That’s the testament to [how spontaneous we work as a team]. Kapaan lang kami wherever she takes the song, wherever I take the song, we sort of find each other in the end.”
Asked if he’s willing to do a collaboration with Sarah, Bamboo said that it’s all up to ABS-CBN. “Yeah, why not? We can make an original song or something. ABS-CBN holds the key. They can just give me a call and tell me if Sarah and I can do a song or whatever.”
Although he’s mainly known as a rock star, Bamboo added that he has no problem performing pop songs as well. “I don’t really overthink things. I just want to try to be myself. I’m still a badass. But you know, I just play from the heart, sing from the heart. Sarah mirrors that. It’s a great pairing on stage.”
It was one of the most epic collaborations for a concert ever. Sarah Geronimo and Bamboo came together on stage to perform the hit Goo Goo Dolls’ song Iris during the popstar’s 24/SG concert at the Araneta Coliseum.
Their undeniable chemistry on stage is so phenomenal that every person at The Big Dome just watched in awe, mesmerized at how these two incredible artists made this one song an unforgettable anthem that signifies their equally remarkable duet.

Our favorite popstar shares her genuine feelings and thoughts on latest events and happenings on her life and career.
Sarah’s wish for Mommy Divine this Mother’s Day:
“Good health. Marami pa akong pangarap sa pamilya namin, para din sa sarili ko. Kung ano ‘yung meron ako ngayon, sa singing career ko, gusto ko naman maging proud siya dahil anak niya ako. Hindi yung si Sarah Geronimo na artista, singer, concert performer.”
What people can expect from Sarah on The Voice of the Philippines:
“Itong pagiging coach ko sa The Voice is a big challenge for me kasi kumbaga di na ako ito eh. Di ko na ‘to storya, di ko na ‘to boses, boses na ‘to ng mga tao na nangangarap so in-charge ka sa victory nila eh. Ang masakit nun, siyempre may Battle Rounds na, kailangan na mag-eliminate sa team ko. Masakit.”
What Sarah is looking for from The Voice PH contestants’ voices:
“Passion. Di lang po sa kanta. Iba din kasi ‘yung magaling ka lang kumanta vocally, technically. Pero kapag wala kang passion, wala.”
Sarah’s relationship with the other The Voice PH coaches:
“Maganda po yung rapport namin, ‘yung working relationship namin. Actually nakakaintimidate po talaga. Tuwing taping day namin nilalabanan ko talaga ‘yung intimidation. Pero nilalakasan ko na lang po ‘yung loob ko.”
Sarah as a Bamboo fan:
“Grabe sobra po akong blessed dahil taga-hanga ako ni Bamboo. ‘Yung mabigyan ka ng chance na makaperform siya sa iisang stage, it’s a big treat. Talagang pinasasalamatan ko ng husto. ‘Pag kasama mo siya sa stage naoobliga ka talaga gumalaw kasi magmumukha kang gulay kapag naka-ganyan ka lang at di mo sinabayan si Bamboo.”
Sarah on the issue about Charice’s new look:
“We have to respect her, hindi dahil si Charice Pempengco siya kundi dahil tao siya. Bawat isa [sana mag] respetuhan. Tama na, pabayaan na natin si Charice. Ang magagawa lang naman natin para sa kanya is to pray for her. Wala naman tayo sa posisyon para masabi kung ano ang tama o mali para sa kanya. Basta tayo magdasal tayo kung ano ‘yung the best para sa personal na buhay niya at singing career niya.”
Sarah on her own “awkward” stage:
“Awkward stage ko ito ngayon. Ngayon ko pa lang pina-find myself. Ngayon ko lang iniisip kung ano’ng gusto ko para sa buhay ko. Ito ‘yung quarter life crisis, ‘yung may marami kang tanong.”
