Sarah Geronimo: Fangirling and her upcoming Davao concert

Popularly known as the Popstar Royalty or the Pop Princess of the Philippines, Sarah Geronimo has made a mark for herself in the entertainment industry for the past 14 years. What started out as a childhood dream, joining several singing contests as young girl, it is very inspiring to see her now, going full circle and enjoying her accomplishments as a successful singer, dancer, actress, product endorser and producer. Over the years, aside from her awesome talent,  I admire her professionalism and passion for her career. She also has this sunshine-y attitude that makes her adorable and funny. This is the reason why I especially love watching her films. Kilig and feel good. I don’t know but I really think she always establishes a wonderful chemistry with her leading men in the movies. No wonder they’re always blockbuster hits. And her songs–soulful, unforgettable and well-loved by many. My current favorite is her song with Yeng […]
