Sarah Geronimo wore a purple Escada ensemble when she received her trophy during the 21st Golden Dove Awards last April 26, 2013.
The singer-actress personally accepted the award for Sarah G Live as Best TV Variety Program from the KBP (Kapisanan ng mga Broadkaster ng Pilipinas).
She told the crowd at the Star Theater, Star City complex in Pasay City: "Nagpapasalamat po ako sa Panginoong Diyos sa pagkaka reward ng biyaya na ito. Nakasarap malaman na bukod sa solid supporters na nag-a-appreciate, mayroon ring credible na institution na pinupuna ang iyong hard work.
"Hindi po naging madali ang pagbuo ng Sarah G Live. Makulay ang journey," she admitted, prompting her to pause as she
was at a loss for words.
She admitted that working on Sarah G Live helped a lot not only in her career but also her development as a person.
"Personally po, malaki ang naging tulong sa akin ng pagkakaroon ng sariling variety show para mag-mature, hindi lang as a performer but
also as a person and as a girl who is now a woman. Naks!"
She then let out her trademark giggle.
"Nagpapasalamat po ako sa ABS-CBN management dahil pinagkatiwalaan nila ko na bigyan ng sariling variety show. Sila po ang nagtiwala sa
akin simula pa noong ASAP. Kaya binabahagi ko rin po ang award na ito sa aking ASAP family.
She continued, "Inaalay ko rin po ito sa pamilya ko. Mahal na mahal ko ang pamilya ko. Minahal nila ang Sarah Geronimo na tao hindi ang Sarah
Geronimo na performer."
She then encouraged the audience to watch her movie, It Takes a Man and a Woman, after watching the third installment of Iron Man.
When Sarah was interviewed after she accepted her award, she was asked if she wants to have another variety show in the future.
She admitted: "Mahirap po kasi magkaroon ng sariling musical variety show. Isa po tayong concert performer at bilang concert performer, kailangan ponatin ng time para makapag prepare ng magandang show everytime lumalabas tayo onstage. Kailangan rin i-consider yun."
Sarah was seated at the left side of the Star Theater and when Gerald Anderson arrived, he was seated on the right side of the venue.
When asked if Sarah had the chance to interact with Gerald, shemotioned as if walking away as she said, "Halika na."
She mentioned that she had a colorful journey while she was hosting Sarah G Live. Was Gerald a part of that colorful journey?
Sarah did not answer directly and tried to leave the venue already.
However, she paused when she was asked regarding her latest movie It Takes a Man and a Woman
, which has already overtaken Praybeyt Benjamin.
