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.

The Voice of The Philippines coaches Sarah Geronimo and Bamboo Manalac rocked the ABS-CBN summer trade event as they performed powerful renditions of “Just Give Me A Reason” and “Iris” aside from their solo numbers. Despite being known for their respective genres in music, they blended so well together on stage. “Iba naman yung aming genre. Mga music naman kami. Iba kasi talaga yung energy ni Bamboo. Sobrang contagious. Nakakahiya na maging statwa ka kapag katabi mo siya,” she said in an interview with Push.com.ph, SIR, and The Buzz at the NBC Tent.
The two did a similar duet on ASAP last Sunday, May 5, and Sarah said that she’s open to doing more collaborations with Bamboo.
When asked how she feels about the possibility of being romantically linked to her fellow coach, Sarah was quick to say that she respects the fact that he’s already a family man. “Hindi [ako natatakot ma-link sa kanya]. Bakit naman? Wala naman dapat ika-link. Diyos ko, may asawa po yung tao. Huwag naman [isali] yung personal na buhay ni Coach Bamboo,” she added.
If anything, Sarah said she enjoys the friendly rivalry among her fellow coaches during the blind auditions for The Voice of The Philippines. “Alam mo ang ganda ng working relationship namin, yung rapport naming mga coaches. Nakakatawa si Ms. Lea (Salonga), yung approach niya strict na cool pa rin. Tsaka naenjoy ko rin yung mga lokohan. Kailangan kasi i-hard sell mo sarili mo sa gusto mong auditionees.”
Although being tough and competitive proved to be challenging for the Popstar Princess, she said she’s determined to be the best coach for her team members. “Oo, kailangan eh. Hindi naman ako ganon ka-competitive. Nahirapan ako dun pero kailangan talaga. Hindi ko naman ito future, future ito ng ibang tao. Lahat ng teams maraming may mga malalaking potential na maging [singing sensations].”
Sarah sad that she can’t wait for viewers to see the exciting happenings in the show. “Ang dami kong natutunan mula sa auditionees. Napaka-emotional at victorious din sa mga naging part ng team. Very excited kami sa magiging career nila na maguumpisa dito.”
