Sarah Geronimo is Okay With Doing a Concert With Angeline Quinto

Sarah Geronimo seemed to exude more self-confidence ever since she arrived from her month-long vacation in the US where she studied to hone her singing and dancing skills. “Hindi ko nga alam kung naa-appreciate nila. Salamat naman po. Kaya naman po ako pumunta roon para ma-boost ‘yung self-confidence [at para] may matutunan pa para ma-apply sa perfomances sa ASAP at mga concerts na ginagawa ko po.”

On her return to ASAP after her US vacation, Sarah had a production number with Angeline Quinto, which was a bit of a surprise since she previously made it known that she was not comfortable performing with the latter because people constantly make comparisons of them. “Nasasanay na rin po ako,” Sarah answered when asked why she had a change of heart. She continued that it was not the first time she was pitted against a fellow singer because she was also compared with other singers before like Rachelle Ann Go. “Lahat kami [ng] co-champions ko hindi mawawala ‘yung pagko-compare.”

She justified that even Martin Nievera and Gary Valenciano are still being compared to each other even after so many years in the business. “Wala eh, bahagi talaga ng society. Pero ang importante alam naman namin kung ano ‘yung [totoo]. Iba-iba ang bawat individuals. Meron po akong kayang gawin, meron siyang kayang gawin, so unique po ang bawat isa, so walang dahilan para ipag-compare ang bawat isa,” she stressed.

The actress-host also confirmed that she and Angeline are even textmates. Sarah added, “Schoolmates po kami nung elementary pa lang. Nagkasama kami sa Star For A Night. Kilala namin ‘yung kulay ng bawat isa.”

Asked if she is willing to have a concert with Angeline, Sarah said, “Opo naman.” She clarified that she has nothing against performing with Angeline but she becomes uncomfortable when people bring them for a showdown. “Naging open naman po ako na hindi ko talaga forte ‘yung pagbirit (which Angeline does). Okay lang naman. Di ko naman sinasabi ayoko, ayoko ng ganun [mag-perform together with Angeline]. ‘’Yun ‘yung lumalabas. Hindi po ‘yon totoo.”
