Sarah Geronimo’s awesome decade

By Isah V. Red | Posted 10 hours ago | 322 views

Awesome isn’t enough to describe Sarah Geronimo’s first decade in showbiz.
The 25-year-old Popstar Princess has done it all, from turning out albums that had become certified platinum to starring in blockbuster films. Add to those her performing in SRO concerts, guesting and hosting top rating TV shows.
So, what more can this girl from Sta. Cruz, Manila ask for?
Yet, the acclaim keeps coming.

Sarah Geronimo in concert in November
At the recent 5th Star Awards for Music, Sarah was named Female Recording Artist of the Year.
She has also been nominated in the Best Southeast Asia Act category at this year’s MTV Europe Music Awards (EMA). Wow! If that’s fortuitous, then it’s a happy one for the girl. After all, not many from this country gets that kind of recognition in other countries.
In that event, Sarah will be vying against Malaysia’s Hafiz, Vietnam’s My Tam, Indonesia’s NOAH, Singapore’s Olivia Ong, and Thailand’s Slot Machine.
Now, to celebrate her decade of a fairy-tale journey to superstardom, Sarah will goes on stage in November for not one but two concerts. It’s called Perfect 10.
Originally a one-night concert at the Araneta Coliseum on Nov. 15, but the tickets have quickly been sold out and fans are clamoring for a repeat. It’s a case of Sarah’s fans not having enough of their idol.
Tickets for the Nov. 15 show have been sold out as early as August, says Viva’s big boss Vic del Rosario, Sarah’s long-time mentor.
“We decided to hold a second concert. We can’t disappoint Sarah’s legions of fans,” Boss Vic says.
The second Perfect 10 will be at the Mall of Asia Arena on Nov. 30. “The venue is closer to Sarah’s fans in southern Metro Manila,” Boss Vic explains.
After finishing her stint as judge in The Voice of the Philippines, Sarah is now focused on the preparations for Perfect 10. Boss Vic says she is completely immersed in the concert, choosing the songs she will perform, the costumes she will wear and even the stage design.
It’s hard to imagine that it was a decade ago when a little girl with a big heart and a remarkable voice shot to fame after winning the popular talent show, Star For A Night.
Today that young girl has blossomed into one of the country’s most versatile and highly successful artists. Sarah has become not only a recording star; she is a multi-awarded movie and TV actress as well.
Sarah envisions Perfect 10 to be the mother of all concerts, bigger than her most successful concert to date, 24/SG.
Tickets to Perfect 10 are still on sale on Ticketnet, at Viva Concerts And SM Tickets (470-2222) for MOA Arena.
