Ibang klase talaga ang aking favorite singer-actress na si Sarah Geronimo. Hindi pa nangyayari ang Perfect 10, ang major concert niya sa Smart Araneta Coliseum sa Nov. 15, may repeat agad ito sa Nov. 30. Ganyan ka-in demand ang tickets para sa 10th year anniversary concert ni Sarah.
Nagpasya si Boss Vic del Rosario na magkaroon ng repeat ang Perfect 10 dahil halos sold out na ang tickets pero imbes na sa Big Dome, ang SM Mall of Asia Arena ang susunod na venue para malapit naman si Sarah sa mga tagahanga niya na nakatira sa southern area.
Beterano na si Boss Vic sa pagpo-produce ng mga concert kaya alam niya na ang tickets para sa patron section ang unang mauubos sa Nov. 15 concert ni Sarah.
Hands on na hands on si Sarah sa Perfect 10. Siya ang personal na pumili sa mga kanta, stage design, at gowns na gagamitin niya. Ginagawa ni Sarah ang lahat para maging memorable ang pagdiriwang sa kanyang 10th anniversary sa showbusiness.
Naka-focus ang atensiyon ni Sarah sa kanyang concert kaya limitado ang kanyang TV appearances. Next year na lamang uli siya gagawa ng pelikula.
Nag-promise si Boss Vic na exceptional and unusual ang Perfect 10 bilang pasasalamat ni Sarah sa fans na naging loyal sa kanya.
Mas malaki at bongga ang production value ng Perfect 10 compared sa kanyang concert noong 2012, ang 24 S/G.
Magsisimula sa Oct. 6 ang pagbebenta ng tickets para sa Nov. 30 concert. Sa mga gustong manood ng Perfect 10 sa Nov. 15, available pa ang tickets sa lower at upper box sections.
Mabibili ang tickets ng Perfect 10 sa SM Tickets, TicketNet, at Viva Concerts. Sa mga interesado na bumili, tumawag at mag-inquire sa telephone numbers 911-5555, 470-2222, at 687-7236.
Ibinalita naman ng Viva Records bosses na platinum na ang Expressions, ang bagong album ni Sarah na inilabas sa mga music store, two weeks ago.
Take note, si Sarah ang line producer ng album na may 11 songs. Tinutukan din ni Sarah ang Expressions habang binubuo ito bilang first time niya na maging line producer ng sariling album.
Si Sarah ang coach ni Klarisse de Guzman sa The Voice of the Philippines. Marami ang umasa na si Klarisse ang mananalo dahil mahusay ang mentor nito at crystal clear ang tunog ng kanyang boses.
Timing na timing ang pagtatapos ng The Voice of the Philippines noong Linggo dahil wala nang conflict sa rehearsals niya para sa concert niya sa Big Dome.
Since then she has released a string of hits, starting with ‘Forever’s Not Enough’. But I was always bothered when she get’s ‘possessed’ by her idol ‘Celine Dion’ whenever she sang. I guess at 15-16 she was still trying to find her own sound.
The networks and her management would always ask her to sing high-pitched songs, even as in the past years she has demonstrated that she can be more versatile — very much capable of singing (and dancing) and delivering a total performance. She has ventured into TV shows and movies — and given the right script can deliver a convincing performance in acting — demonstrating good timing for humor and enough sensibilities for light-hearted dramatic moments.
When they announced Sarah Geronimo as one of the coaches for The Voice of the Philippines, I had thought she was ‘too young for the job’. I, like most people, have forgotten, that while she is a young girl she has been in the business for a decade. And lately, her pairing and song choices for the battle have clearly demonstrated her maturity as a music artist — even if she sometimes finds it hard to articulate her vision…
I have a confession to make– SARAH GERONIMO: EXPRESSIONS is the very first Sarah Geronimo album I’ve ever bought. That’s because while I knew she could sing well, I wasn’t so into the high-notes or the teeny-bopper songs she used to release. Plus lately, she’s been churning out revivals. But when she launched her first single in ASAP last Sunday, she gave a performance that was hard to ignore:
It’s as if all those years of finding her own sound, of growing up, of refusing to be defined as a -birit girl – have now come to the fore. She still sounded good, but she performed with so much passion — i saw a little bit of Michael Jackson, a little bit of Beyonce — and all of Sarah Geronimo.
01. Again 02. Pati Ang Pangarap Ko 03. Ikot-Ikot 04. Tayo 05. Maaari Ba 06. Eyes on Fire 07. Sweetest Mistake 08. Mama 09. You’ve Got a Friend (feat. duet with Daddy Delfin Geronimo) 10. Make Me Yours (composed by Sarah Geronimo) 11. It Takes a Man and a Woman
Don’t expect to hear a lot screaming from Sarah in this album. The entire album has more of a laid-back, low-key vibe: nice to listen to on a lazy weekend or a good long drive. The entire track is easy listening, even with the occasional high notes. In fact, ‘Ikot-ikot,” the carrier single is probably the most vocally challenging of all the tracks.
I’m not sure how the long-time Sarah fans would react because the album sounds entirely new for Sarah. Even the lyrics have a matured a little bit — without trying so hard to be profound. There are still sweet love songs like “Again” and a nice ode to mothers in “Mama“. There’s a nice-folksy-sounding cover of ”You’ve Got a Friend“, which is a duet with her father, Delfin Geronimo. Then there’s the familiar OPM-Pop sound in “Pati Pangarap Ko,” ”Maari Ba” and “Tayo“.
The mix of song-writers also adds to the interesting blend of sound of this album. You get table love songs from the likes of Vehnee Saturno, more edgy beats from Thyro Alfaro, who wrote both “Ikot-Ikot” and “Tayo.” Then there are the sweet tracks from Pow Chavez [who was one of my favorite contestants in Pinoy Idol]. Even Sarah penned a song entitled “Make me Yours“, which she claims she wrote for God.
Sarah sounded so velvety-smooth in this entire album. Even for revivals “You’ve Got a Friend” and “It Takes a Man and a Woman“. My favorite track is “Sweetest Mistake“, penned by Franco Eumir L. Tantay, which is a heartbreaking love-song that sounded so sad, but not the angry-sounding sad. It’s the kind of single that can be released internationally. Even the other song written by Tantay brought a whole new sound — Eyes on Fire — made Sarah sound so sexy.
The Popstar Princess has successfully reinvented her sound and even her look and sound without be too abrupt in the transition. You don’t see her showing too much skin in the album photos, but you know she’s not the 15 year-old singing contestant that you were rooting for. You are looking and listening to a full-grown woman who is ripe for the picking.
WE PERSONALLY LIKE HER NEW SOUND…
With this album, it was, as if, Sarah Geronimo was telling everybody — “you cannot ease me out just yet.” It was pretty obvious her current network is building up a new ‘popstar’ who sings high-pitched songs. But with a new hit movie under her wings, her maturity in THE VOICE, and her newfound voice, Sarah Geronimo is cementing her place in the Philippine Entertainment industry — SARAH GERONIMO still got game and she as many more years ahead of her. As for the album, it’s a good buy. And we always need to incentivize local pop stars who continue to push the boundaries — for the development of OPM. Sarah Geronimo: Expressions is available in itunes and all leading record bars.
Sarah Geronimo is yet to release her latest album, titled "Expressions," but it has already topped iTunes Philippineschart.
Quite a number of Popsters have pre-ordered the new album, allowing it to climbto the top spot of the chart. The orders have surpassed the number ofdownloadsof the records featuring the music of Michael Jackson, Justin Timberlake, One Direction, Adele, among others.
Coming out on July 22nd, "Expressions" contains 11 tracks including Sarah's duet with her dad, Delfin, and a song titled "Mama," which is dedicated to the Popstar Princess' mom, Divine." The titles of the tracks are as follows: "Again," "Pati ang Pangarap Ko," "Ikot-Ikot," "Tayo," "Maaari Ba," "Eyes on Fire," "Sweetest Mistake," "Mama," "You've Got A Friend (ft. Delfin Geronimo)," "Make Me Yours" and "It Takes A Man and A Woman
Sarah is celebrating her 10 years in the industry this years. Her singing career bloomed when she won the "Star For A Night" competition in 2013. Since then, she has released more than ten hit albums, headlined several local and international concert tours, topbilled six films and four TV series, and reaped recognition from different award-giving bodies in the country and abroad.
