Sarah Geronimo Wows Big Dome In Two-Night Concert

MANILA, Philippines - A couple of glitches did not stop Pop Star Princess Sarah Geronimo from staging a good show for her thousands of fans that trooped to the Smart Araneta Coliseum on July 21.

During the repeat of her birthday concert titled "24/SG," Geronimo accidentally slipped onstage and, a little later, was hit on the head by pyrotechnic material while performing the song "And I Am Telling You" from the musical "Dreamgirls."

The show must go on, as they always say, so the young singer continued belting the song which reaped thunderous applause from the audience.

"May na-skip ako na step sa hagdan. May pasa ng konti pero okay lang. Hindi ko naapakan 'yung isang step, dumiretso ako. Pero okay lang 'yun, the show must go on. Hayaan na natin, at least nag-enjoy tayo and nandito silang lahat para magbigay ng suporta, so okay na 'yun," she told a pool of reporters after the show.

The young superstar has proven herself yet again to be a stellar performer alongside her guests that rocked the Big Dome that night. These include balladeer Basil Valdez, co-Viva talent Anja Aguilar, rock star Bamboo Mañalac and her very own Daddy Delfin Geronimo, among others.

Having filled Araneta Coliseum twice with this concert series-the first time was on July 7-underscores the staggering amount of supporters that she has. And their loyalty wasn't lost on Geronimo, who was very grateful to her dear fans, collectively known as the Popsters, that braved the heavy rains on Saturday just to see her perform.

"Forever ko po kayong papasalamatan sa inyo pong walang sawang pag-suporta sa akin kahit pa bumabagyo. Maraming, maraming salamat po," she told the reporters.

Aside from the show-stopping numbers, many of her fans anticipated the appearance of her rumored boyfriend Gerald Anderson, who had been present at the concert on July 7.

Much to her fans dismay, though, the Fil-American actor was nowhere in sight that night. However, few of Geronimo's colleagues were seen in the audience, among them Sam Milby, Gary Valenciano and ABS-CBN Channel Head Cory Vidanes.

When prodded by the press after the show about Anderson's absence, she remarked, "Baka may commitment siya or may trabaho. Pero tomorrow maggi-guest po siya sa 'Sarah G Live."'

She added, "Hindi naman niya kailangan magpaalam kung hindi siya makakarating. Siyempre nandito tayo para sa audience natin."
