Very few celebrities are fortunate enough to be given a self-titled TV show. You need to be the Megastar, Superstar, Star For All Seasons or Concert King for TV networks to grant you a solo musical show. And Popstar Princess Sarah Geronimo has already reached that level. She has what it takes and she’s ready to flaunt it.
Launched last February, Sarah G. Live is consistently performing well in the ratings game. Sarah’s musical variety show has become a favorite Sunday night bonding activity of Filipino audiences. It has changed a typical Sunday evening into a magical night. If Sarah G. Live has contributed a lot to Filipino entertainment, it also did the same thing to the Popstar Princess. Having her own musical variety show is a dream come true for Sarah Geronimo.
It was a challenge for her but Sarah is determined to push herself to the limit. “Unexpected ito saka siyempre malaking blessing ito saka challenge para sa’kin kasi siyempre, yun nga po, baguhan pa lang ako sa business na ito. At yung nga, icons na talaga yung mga gumawa ng sarili nilang musical variety show, si Ms. Sharon Cuneta, superstar natin, si Ms. Nora Aunor. So, isang malaking karangalan talaga na mapagkatiwalaan ng sariling show.”
All of these wouldn’t become reality if not for the people who believed and trusted her. “Basta sobra akong grateful sa ABS-CBN at sa Viva dahil nag-gamble sila. Malaking challenge talaga sa’kin. Basta kami, maswerte ako na nabigyan ako ng magaling production team sa Sarah G. Live, yung staff, yung crew.”
Sarah admitted that she’s not really comfortable with hosting. With the help of the Sarah G. Live crew, her co-host Luis Manzano, her special celebrity guests and the fans who are continuously cheering for her, the Popstar Princess is slowly learning the art of hosting.
“Ako, takot na takot ganyan. Lalo na sa hosting kasi hindi naman talaga ako host. Pero eventually, nababawasan na po yung kaba. Nagiging mas komportable na ko dun sa stage namin, sa set. Yung audience ko kasi, intimate, malapit sa’min. Tapos yung hosting naman, magaling naman yung staff namin, very supportive sila. Nakikita nila na kailangan talaga ng suporta sa pagho-host.”
Sarah G. Live also gave her the opportunity to create bonding moments with her fans. “Hindi talaga kumpleto yung show ko kung wala sila, yung Popsters. Siyempre ginagawa ko naman yung lahat para mas mapasaya yung viewers.” Projects, shoots, tapings and rehearsals here and there, Sarah has very little time to try new things and discover what’s out there in the world. Thanks to the show’s Sige Go segment, Sarah now has the reason to do exciting activities.
“Yun yung binibigyan ako ng chance na magawa yung mga activities na never ko pang nagagawa. Mga adventures na gusto kong gawin. Yung mga gusto kong gawin. Nagsa-suggest ako ng activities na gusto kong gawin. Maswerte ako na may segment na Sige Go sa show ko. Hindi lang siya puro trabaho o performances, may break pa or time for myself para mag-enjoy naman habang nasa trabaho.”
Above everything else, it’s this show where Sarah Geronimo is allowed to just be herself. Now, the public can get access to Sarah’s personal life and never-before-seen “Sarah moments”. Sarah G. Live is a major milestone in the Popstar Princess’ career life. It opened for more learnings and opportunities. “Ito na yung chance ko to grow hindi lang bilang isang performer pero bilang isang tao. Parang marami akong matutunan sa show na ‘to. Maraming maituturo ‘to sa’kin.”
