BillboardPH Wishes Sarah Geronimo A Happy Birthday

Posted By: ZYNC - 11:06 PM

Today (July 25), Sarah Geronimo celebrates her 29th birthday.

The singer/songwriter/dancer/actress has even more labels to her name than can be explained in one breath, but these can all be captured under her widely recognised title as Philippines’ Ultimate Pop Superstar. Her music career spans 15 years —now officially spending more than half of her life on her passion and craft— beginning with her participation in the Philippine version of the British television series Star for a Night back in 2002. She emerged as the grand winner of the singing competition, earning her moniker as Pop Star Princess.

Geronimo’s career growth sprung upwards naturally from her myriad of talents, extending beyond music and becoming a staple in brand endorsements, TV series, and movies (her latest film Finally Found Someone with John Lloyd Cruz will be in cinemas starting tomorrow, July 26).

As a musical artist, her vocal prowess is continually recognised throughout the years both locally and globally. Here are just a few of the awards under her belt:

— Best Asian Artist (Philippines), Mnet Asian Music Awards (Hong Kong, 2012)
— World’s Best Philippine Entertainer, World Music Awards (Monaco, 2014)
— Best Southeast Asian Act, MTV Europe Music Awards (United Kingdom, 2014)
— Gold Global Sound Award, International Song Contest: The Global Sound (Australia, 2015)
— Best Female Artist of the Philippines, Big Apple Music Awards (United States, 2016)
— Best Asian Performer, Classic Rock Awards (Japan, 2016)
— Goodwill Ambassadress for Music, National Commission for Culture and the Arts (Philippines, 2013 and 2017)
— Ani ng Dangal in Multi-Disciplinary Arts (Philippines, 2013)
— Album of the Year (and more), Awit Awards (Philippines, 2016)
— Female Concert Performer of The Year, PMPC Star Awards for Music (Philippines, 2016)
— Favorite Song, Favorite Music Video, Favorite Collaboration, Myx Music Awards (Philippines, 2017)

Sarah Geronimo also maintains a high position in BillboardPH’s Top 20 Social Charts, which rank local recording artists based on their social media activity and presence on select social media channels, also showing how much Popsters (Sarah G’s fans) show their online support to the Popstar Royalty.
