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.
