The Long Wait is Over

Barely two years after the controversy between Kim-Ge fans and their disagreements on the supposed to be movie project of Sarah and Gerald, Sarah Geronimo formally announced that the movie will push through. This was on the latter part of 2010.

Both of them went through their own difficult times. Gerald was involved in a stir between Bea Alonzo and the Kimerald fans. It was reported that Bea and his family received threats from the fans, though there was no formal confirmation on the said report. Sarah on the other hand faced a controversy involving Cristine Reyes and Rayver Cruz. Cristine posted nasty tweets regarding a celebrity whom she dislikes. Both Sarah and Gerald didn't give statements on the controversies they faced. They decided to keep their mouth shut as a sign of respect and privacy.

The two stars kept themselves busy with the movie project that they did.

Sarah, Gerald and their long waited team-up

It was on the middle part of 2009 when a scoop pertaining to a possible Sarah-Gerald team-up came out. Kris Aquino was quoted on The Buzz talking about the two young stars' possible movie to be produced by Viva Films and Star Cinema. On the said part of the show, she mentioned that Boss Vic del Rosario, Viva Films' Executive and Sarah's Manager, is interested of producing a movie for the two.

However before even formal talks between the two camps pushes through, fans of Kim Chui-Gerald Anderson tandem or more popularly known as Kimeralds begged off for the said project. Given the harsh response of the fans, Sarah herself dispelled the rumor about the said poject.

But who would've think that after barely two years a movie was made and the rest is history! ♥

Sarah Geronimo : The Popstar Princess

That girl will go far. She’s only 14, right? For someone like Sarah, for the first time she appears and acts in a film, she's good. Maybe some people have high expectation on her but for me she's good    -  Maricel Soriano
She is a breath of fresh air in terms of wholesome image, humility, real talent and source of good news for the Philippine entertainment industry     -  Wilson Flores

The personality of her voice is phenomenally distinct. Many have great voices but they tend to imitate foreign divas like Mariah Carey or Whitney Houston. She definitely is the biggest talent I have come across with in the last ten years...     -  Christian de Walden

She was born on July 25, 1988 to Father Delfin Geronimo, a retired PLDT employee, and mother Divina, who used to run a beauty parlor in their house at Sta. Cruz, Manila. Sarah is the third of four children with siblings Johna Rizzie, Sunshine Grace, and Ezekiel Gabriel.

Sarah’s first music lessons came from her father. He would have her practice everyday to develop her singing prowess. Sarah first sang on stage at age two at a mall show. Sarah sang “Pasko Na Naman” with Pinky Marquez and Richard Reynoso. At four years old,mother Divine would accompany her to auditions for different TV programs. Sarah became part of kiddie shows Pen-pen de Sarapen (4-6 years old), Ang TV (7-8 years old), and NEXT (8-9 years old). In between auditions, Sarah would perform at shopping malls and hotel lounges. 

She was one of the performers during the 1995 visit of Pope John Paul II. Sarah at an early age joined hosts of different singing contests the first of which was Tuklas Talino sponsored by the Philippine Long Distance Telephone Company (PLDT).Star For A Night hosted by Ms. Regine Velasquez was arguably the singing contest that catapulted Sarah to stardom. On March 1, 2003, at age fourteen Sarah emerged as the grand prize winner of the said singing competition with her rendition of the song “To Love You More.” She won P 1 million and a managerial contract at Viva Artist Agency. The prize money was spent on tuition fees and the operation of her eldest sister.After this turning point what followed are albums, concerts, her own soap opera, a mainstay at ASAP (a Sunday variety show), supporting roles in movies, endorsements, and legions of fans. She became a popstar, a teen princess, a role model.

Sarah paved the way for the next generation champion singers. They are Mark Bautista, Rachelle Ann Go, Raymond Manalo, Erik Santos, Sheryn Regis, Christian Bautista, Frenchie Dy, Jerome Sala, and more still sompeting. At ASAP, champion singers show off their winning form at Champions Showdown.When not busy being a popstar, Sarah spends time with her family, they go to Sunday mass. Sarah enjoys reading J. K.
