Sarah Geronimo Gears Up for Concert

Singer-actress Sarah Geronimo is now back in the country after going on leave for almost a month to take advanced dance and singing lessons in Los Angeles.

"Kagagaling ko lang po sa States. It's good to be back," Geronimo said during the rehearsal for her upcoming concert dubbed "What Love Is" with Martin Nievera.

Geronimo said it was a nice feeling to learn more things about her craft.

"Refreshing siyempre po. Ito ang matagal ko ng gustong gawin para ma-improve ang craft ko. Gusto kong mag-voice lessons at mag-dance lessons doon. Finally naayos ang schedule. I feel fulfilled," she said.

The Pop Star Princess said she was inspired by the dance group G-Force.

"Kasi ang galing na nila pero nagta-take pa din sila ng dance classes sa L.A. at sa New York," Geronimo said.

The actress-singer said she took the classes to give her fans a really great performance.

"Well obviously, talagang gusto ko na laging mabigyan ng magandang performance ang mga audience. Gusto kong mag-improve," she said.

When asked what kind of dance she learned in the US, Geronimo replied: "Confidential na lang."

In the interview, Nievera praised Geronimo for making an effort to improve her craft.

"Siyempre that's a lesson sa lahat ng mga bagong singers at mga singers na akala nila magaling na sila, sikat na sila. If Sarah Geronimo can go to school and improve her craft, that says a lot for the industry. I think we should all be proud of her and at the same time we should follow in her footsteps. Hindi naman sa kailangan ikaw ay pumunta sa Amerika. Kailangan lang ay i-improve at i-hone ang craft mo," he said.

Meanwhile, Geronimo addressed the issue that she went abroad to do a project with Charice and David Foster.

"Wala naman po. Walang ano [man]. Nabalitaan ko na may statement nga. Natuwa naman ako pero bahala na si Lord kung ano ang will niya," she said.

In a previous interivew, Foster said it would be nice if Charice and Geronimo would do a project together.

Geronimo said that because of her busy schedule in the US, she never had the chance to see Charice.

On Friday (July 8), Geronimo and Martin will be performing at Central Philippine University in Iloilo and at the Waterfront Hotel in Cebu City on July 15.

Report has it that Geronimo, who will be turning 23 on July 25, will be doing a movie again with actor John Lloyd Cruz.

"I heard nga po. Nalaman ko sa ibang tao pero wala pang confirmation from Boss Vic and Star Cinema. Siyempre masaya tayo kung ano ang ikakasaya ng mga tao," Geronimo said.
