Sarah Geronimo says her Mommy Divine constantly tells her, "O, Sarah, alagaan mo yung career mo, yung boses mo. Yung mga supporters mo, huwag mo sila pababayaan."



Ever since she joined show business, Sarah Geronimo admits that her mother, known to fans as Mommy Divine, has always been very supportive of her.

In the April 4 live session with Sarah, which was shown on Viva Entertainment's YouTube channel, her Star for a Night batchmate Mark recalled how Sarah would constantly tell him that it was Mommy Divine who taught her about showmanship.

So, he asked Sarah, “Ngayon ba si Mommy may say pa rin sa mga performances mo?”

Sarah replied, “Of course, naman. Siya yung No. 1 ano ko, nagki-critique sa akin, nagre-remind sa akin na, 'O, Sarah, alagaan mo yung career mo, yung boses mo. Yung mga supporters mo, huwag mo sila pababayaan.'”

However, the 29-year-old singer/dancer/actress pointed out that she has more freedom now to choose which songs to perform in her shows or concerts.

Sarah added, “Siyempre meron pa rin siyang inputs, na parang, 'O, anak, huwag mong kalilimutan 'tong song na 'to...'

“Halimbawa, yung 'To Love You More.' [Sabi ko] 'Mommy, paulit-ulit ko nang kinakanta 'yan.' 'Hindi, anak, 'yan yung...'”

Celine Dion's "To Love You More" was Sarah's winning piece in the contest Search for a Star in 2003.

Speaking of her old hits, Sarah promised to include these during her 15th anniversary concert This 15 Me at the Araneta Coliseum on Saturday, April 14.

“Siyempre, yung mga songs na naging bahagi na ng 15 years ko definitely kakantahin ko po sa show.

“At saka, siyempre, yung mga current hits, mga bago ko pong songs.”

Since January, Sarah released three new singles titled “Sandata,” “Ganito,” and “Duyan.” These songs will be included in her new album, which will be released during her anniversary concert.


Mark asked Sarah one of the questions he got from fans on Twitter: “Tinatanong nila kung sasayaw ka raw ba. Sabi ko, 'Siyempre, sasayaw si Sarah.'

“Marami kang dance numbers?”

Sarah replied, “Oo, meron din. Kapag Sarah kasi, kapag sinabi mong Sarah...

“Mahal ko rin talaga ang pagsasayaw kahit hindi niya ako mahal pabalik.”

Sarah will be joined by Mark, James Reid, Xian Lim, and Daniel Padilla at her This 15 Me concert.

Using the Instagram account with the handle @justsarahgph, Sarah explained why she stayed away from social media recently.

On April 6, the Popstar Princess explained through her caption: "Sa lahat ng curious sa pagkawala ko these past few days, eto na po... I took a short break para mag-refresh -- to get ready for one of the biggest events in my life.

"Talaga pong demanding sa oras at energy etong paghahanda ko sa concert. Pinakamalaking challenge ito sa career ko so I have to give it my all para sa lahat ng taong sumusuporta sa akin at naging parte ng buhay ko.

"Alam ko hindi ko ito kaya mag-isa. Kinakailangan ko po ng oras para makasama ang mga taong tulad ko na nagpupursigi para maging successful ang concert na ito. Iba po ang nagagawa pag personal mo silang nakakasama at nakikilala -- at syempre ibang level of confidence din ang makikita niyo.

"We dedicate all these hard work sa lahat ng pamilya namin, sa mga taong malalapit at naging malapit sa amin, sa lahat ng mga taong naniniwala sa amin sa simula ng career ko, at syempre sa inyong lahat.

"I feel refreshed now. Ready na ba kayo? See you soon! #This15Me"
