Popstar Princess Sarah Geronimo revealed three birthday wishes on the first night of her two-night birthday concert at the Smart-Araneta Coliseum last night, July 7.
During her birthday concert dubbed 24/SG, Sarah invited the audience to enter her dream.
Here, a wicked witch, played by comedy actor Jon Santos, gave her three wishes. She was warned, however, that if these three wishes do not come true, she would forever be damned in her beautiful nightmare.
This signalled the start of a three-hour entertainment program by the singer-dancer, who will turn 24 on July 25.
Sarah dramatically appeared on stage on a hydraulic lift while singing the slow version of Beyonce’s Sweet Dream.
She wore a two-piece, brocade cloak over a dress embellished with Swarovski stones. Her outfit was designed by Dubai-based Filipino designer Furne One.
In her second song, Eurythmics’s “Sweet Dream,” Sarah danced in time with the computer-generated background. She also removed her cloak, revealing her sexy outfit.
There was a slight problem removing her lapel mic, but she went on with her next number, Rihanna’s “Where Have You Been,” which she performed with the G-Force dancers.
The strobe lights on the stage helped set the party mood of the concert.
Before formally welcoming her audience to her birthday concert, Sarah sang Adele’s “Set Fire to the Rain.”
“Happy 14th birthday to me,” she announced to the audience in jest.
Sarah explained that she was 14 years old when Viva Artists' big boss, Vic del Rosario, discovered her in the defunct singing talent show, Star for a Night.
Since this was her 24th birthday celebration, she teased her avid fans, “This is my 24th birthday, 24 na ako, pwede na!”
The crowd started to scream; they were thrilled at the thought that Sarah hinted that she was free to be in a romantic relationship. This was everyone's wish for the Popstar Princess.
However, she broke the “kilig” feeling by saying, “Pwede nang maging 25. ‘Tapos 26!”
She sang three of her favorite songs which she dedicated to her audience: Coldplay’s “The Scientist,” The Script’s “Breakeven,” and Christina Perri’s “Jar of Hearts.”
