Sarah Asher Geronimo was born on July 25, 1988 to Father Delfin Geronimo, a retired PLDT employee, and mother Divina, who used to run a beauty parlor in their house at Sta. Cruz, Manila. Sarah is the third of four children with siblings Johna Rizzie, Sunshine Grace, and Ezekiel Gabriel.

Sarah's first music lessons came from her father. He would have her practice everyday to develop her singing prowess. Sarah first sang on stage at age two at a mall show. Sarah sang "Pasko Na Naman" with Pinky Marquez and Richard Reynoso. At four years old, mother Divine would accompany her to auditions for different TV programs. Sarah became part of kiddie shows Pen-pen de Sarapen (4-6 years old), Ang TV (7-8 years old), and NEXT (8-9 years old). In between auditions, Sarah would perform at shopping malls and hotel lounges. She was one of the performers during the 1995 visit of Pope John Paul II. Sarah at an early age joined hosts of different singing contests the first of which was Tuklas Talino sponsored by the Philippine Long Distance Telephone Company (PLDT).

Star For A Night hosted by Ms. Regine Velasquez was arguably the singing contest that catapulted Sarah to stardom. On March 1, 2003, at age fourteen Sarah emerged as the grand prize winner of the said singing competition with her rendition of the song "To Love
You More." She won P 1 million and a managerial contract at Viva Artist Agency. The prize money was spent on tuition fees and the operation of her eldest sister.

After this turning point what followed are albums, concerts, her own soap opera, a mainstay at ASAP (a Sunday variety show), supporting roles in movies, endorsements, and legions of fans. She became a popstar, a teen princess, a role model.

Sarah paved the way for the next generation champion singers. They are Mark Bautista, Rachelle Ann Go, Raymond Manalo, Erik Santos, Sheryn Regis, Christian Bautista, Frenchie Dy, Jerome Sala, and more still competing. At ASAP, champion singers show off their
winning form at Champions Showdown.

When not busy being a popstar, Sarah spends time with her family, they go to Sunday mass. Sarah enjoys reading J. K. Rowling's Harry Potter, and plays video games.

    A Very Special Love
    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


    A Very Special Love is a 2008 blockbuster romantic-comedy film from Star Cinema and VIVA Films; featuring the first team-up of the Pop Princess, Sarah Geronimo with Box-office King, John Lloyd Cruz. This movie directed by Cathy Garcia Molina received an “A” rating from the Cinema Evaluation Board. Moreover, the final figures presented by the two film companies confirmed a remarkable P 180 million box-office earnings and making it the 4th Highest-Grossing Film of All-Time in the Philippines, and also it is vying as the no.1 movie of 2008 that would make Geronimo and Cruz the Box-Office King and Queen of that year.

    The film was released on the 30th day of July 2008 and ran for eight weeks on cinemas in the Philippines. It was also relased in the United States on August 15 of the same year.

    A sequel entitled You Changed My Life is set for release on February 25, 2009.


    Laida Magtalas (Sarah Geronimo) and Miggy Montenegro (John Lloyd Cruz) in A Very Special Love.

    Laida is a modern-day Belle. She works hard to provide for her family while believing that someday she will meet her prince charming and they will live happily ever after together. That prince charming is none other than Miggy Montenegro, the youngest of the Montenegro clan—a well established family in the business world. Laida dreams of meeting Miggy every day and every night. These dreams lead her to apply as an Editorial Assistant at Miggy’s newly established men’s magazine Bachelor despite it being a long shot, hoping that working in the company will allow her to be close to the man who invades her dreams every night.

    By some sort of luck, Laida lands the job. Overwhelmed by the being in the presence of her crush, and by her instant employment, Laida remains blind to the fact that the Miggy she dreams of is very different from the real one. Miggy in person is a hothead who thinks he’s always right. The word “sorry” doesn’t mean anything to him. Everyone is scared of him, except Laida, who is always ready to defend her dream man. Blindly she caters to his whim, even when he sent her to be his proxy on his date with his girlfriend, breaking her heart a little. Her co-workers question her unrelenting dedication to such a monster but when Laida proves quite loyal to the man, gossip about Laida’s feelings for their boss starts to circulate. Laida, to defend herself, unwittingly reveals information about Miggy’s personal life which earns her his ire. Being shouted at for the first time by the man she dreams of opens Laida’s eyes to reality. And her awakening in turn leads to Miggy’s rude awakening of why people do not like him.

    No one has ever talked back to Miggy before. No one dared tell him their opinions and or suggestions. Miggy was always right and that’s how he likes it. But when Laida, a simpleton who just follows his every command tells him to his face that he is wrong, Miggy begins to wonder if the reason for his failures could actually be him. For the first time Miggy apologizes. And this opens the door to a whole new world of a lot of “firsts” for Miggy. With the help of Laida, Miggy slowly learns to be a teamplayer. With the help of Laida, Miggy slowly learns the value of loyalty.

    But Miggy’s conflict with his siblings keeps pulling Miggy back to his old ways, and not even Laida’s presence in his life can clear the shadow cast on him by his family. Laida does everything she knows just to help Miggy at the expense of time with her family. As Laida and Miggy’s fight to save the magazine become more intense, so is their fight to keep their intentions and emotions at bay. Will Laida and Miggy ever figure out the right combination to solve their problems in business and in their personal lives? Or will their mismatching personalities, despite their common interest and goal keep them from ever figuring out their perfect pair?

    You Changed My Life
    A Sequel to A Very Special Love


    After their blockbuster first movie team up in last year’s A Very Special Love, John Lloyd Cruz and Sarah Geronimo reunite to give their loyal supporters a post Valentine’s Day treat. The Box-Office King and the Pop Star Princess star in the AVSL’s sequel You Changed My Life directed by Cathy Garcia Molina and produced by Star Cinema and Viva Films.

    You Changed My Life follows the romance between the rich boss Miggy Montenegro (John Lloyd) and the middle-class employee Laida Magtalas (Sarah). This time around, Laida and Miggy now savor the sweet moments as a couple. But as time goes by, their love is put to further tests brought about by the differences of their worlds. They both later realize that a commitment is not at all a bed of roses but a road filled with lots of sacrifices. Laida tries her best to make the time for their relationship, while Miggy finds himself caught between his ambition and his personal happiness. During her lonesome times, Laida seeks comfort from high school sweetheart Macoy (Rayver Cruz). On the other hand, Miggy meets Cristina (Mikee Cojuangco-Jaworski in a surprising guest appearance) who reminds him that once you make the choice, there will be no turning back. Can love alone keep Laida and Miggy together?

    While most love stories simply end with ‘happily ever after’, You Changed My Life shows us what happens after that. We see love in its different stages – from the dating stage, to the challenges, compromises, misunderstandings, jealousy, and fights. The plot is simple and the narrative is easy flowing. There are still the quotable love dialogues which we’ve also heard in A Very Special Love. It may be inevitable to compare this sequel to the first one, and although the question of which one is better may vary for every viewer, one couldn’t argue with the fact that You Changed My Life has the elements of a perfect ‘date movie.’

    John Lloyd charms the audience as the dashing prince charming of the story. Looking good in both corporate suits and casual attire seem an effortless job for this bankable leading man. But more than his good looks, John Lloyd showcases his acting caliber especially in the heavy dramatic scenes. Sarah, on the other hand, manages to match John Lloyd’s strong presence with her realistic portrayal of a girlfriend taken for granted. Put together on the same frame, John Lloyd and Sarah exude a chemistry that gives every hopeless romantic viewer a satisfying ‘kilig’ feel.

    If you enjoyed A Very Special Love, you definitely have to see You Changed My Life may it be with your special someone or just by yourself if you just want to feel more optimistic about finding love. Either way, this film is a recommended must-see for anyone who wants to have a great viewing time. Catch You Changed My Life now showing in cinemas nationwide.

    Critics Review


    STAR BYTES By Butch Francisco Updated February 26, 2009

    As fun to watch as the first version

    John Lloyd Cruz and Sarah Geronimo make a very good sequel in Star Cinema and Viva Films’ You Changed My Life
    Last year’s biggest film surprise was A Very Special Love from Star Cinema and Viva Films. The movie project was an experiment because it was the first time John Lloyd Cruz (very much identified with perennial screen partner Bea Alonzo) was paired off with Sarah Geronimo. The gamble paid off and the movie became a blockbuster hit — installing both John Lloyd and Sarah as the current Box-Office King and Queen.

    But the bigger surprise was that here was a romance comedy and it didn’t follow the usual trite formula of most other love stories. And the public obviously loved it because word of mouth brought in the crowds who appreciated something new in local movies. Even the critics were happy because A Very Special Love got rave reviews and even earned an A grade from the Cinema Evaluation Board (CEB).

    The currently showing You Changed My Life (now co-produced by Star Cinema with Viva Films) is a sequel to A Very Special Love. For those who didn’t get to watch A Very Special Love, here’s a little backgrounder: John Lloyd Cruz is the illegitimate son of a tycoon (Dante Rivero) and has difficulty trying to fit into his father’s first family. The biggest pressure on him is when his brother (Rowell Santiago) puts him in charge of some of the family’s businesses and being young and inexperienced he fails and learns his lessons the hard way. It is while he is facing the battles in life that he meets Sarah, who starts out as his employee. They fall in love and You Changed My Life picks it up from here.

    In the sequel, John Lloyd and Sarah are happily in love with each other, but — like in real life — there are bumps along the way and all these test their love for each other. Their problem begins when John Lloyd is given a new business to run and he becomes ambitious and bites more than he can chew. Since all his time is devoted to work, Sarah feels neglected and John Lloyd is threatened by the presence of Rayver Cruz, his girlfriend’s old buddy from high school. The rest of the movie shows us their struggles to keep their young romance intact and the highs and lows of their relationship.

    You Changed My Life is more than just a love story because it traces a young man’s journey (John Lloyd’s) to maturity. But it’s not necessarily the feel-good type that we see even in most Hollywood movies. In this movie directed once more by Cathy Garcia-Molina, the viewers become witness to the lead actor’s frustrations and disappointments that come as a result of some of his bad decisions. But there are lessons to be learned here, too: Treat your people well and they will bring in the profits.

    Of course, moviegoers expect love to overflow in this romance comedy and it comes in large doses — but still tightly-controlled by the director who makes sure she doesn’t go into excesses. That entire sequence, for instance, where John Lloyd gets jealous of Rayver is so realistically staged that anyone who has been through young love would be able to identify with it and would have his and her kilig moment.

    I also appreciate Molina’s attention to details because all those little things sum up to one great production that boasts of a fine screenplay (with nice and realistic dialogues), technical elements that work properly and direction that knows discipline.

    With regard to performances, Sarah may have to be reminded to cut back a bit on playing it cute. She was already almost perfect in A Very Special Love where she was very raw, but natural. But over-all she is still very effective in You Changed My Life and has some very good comedic and dramatic scenes in the film. She just needs a little bit of tempering, but otherwise she does very well. In contrast, John Lloyd is better here in this sequel (maybe because the focus is more on him) than in the first one. He excels in practically every scene he does in You Changed My Life.

    The supporting cast also delivers wonderful performances — especially Sarah’s barkada: Matet de Leon, Gio Alvarez, Kalila Aguilos, Joross Gamboa and the new addition, Rayver Cruz. Dante Rivero as the patriarch, of course, is brilliant as always and so is Rowell Santiago as the brother who has no sense of fun and humor.

    Mikee Cojuangco-Jaworski also gives a fine performance in a guest role as Rowell’s ex-girlfriend. She is luminous in her scenes and it’s a pity she didn’t continue with her acting career that already got off to a good start in some of her Viva movies in the ‘90s.

    Just like A Very Special Love, You Changed My Life is also graded A by the CEB. Nothing beats the original, but You Changed My Life is still a very good sequel. It’s still as fun to watch as the first one.

    [highlight]PEXSTERS KAADIKAN LEVEL:lol:[/highlight]
    by lanie!

    level 1 pag kakastart mo palang...

    level 2 pag mejo nahihiya hiya ka pa magpost dito..

    level 3 pag mejo wala ka ng hiya..

    level 4 pag umariba ka na sa pagpo post..

    level 5 kapag may collection ka na ng KABOKS dito..

    level 6 pag may ka YM ka na at doon kayo may getting-to-know-each-other

    level 7 pag di ka na nakakatiis na hindi mag On Line at pati sa txt may session.

    level 8 kapag pumupunta punta ka na sa mga MT

    level 9 kapag sumasama sama ka na sa GEB ng pexter o ng certified popsters

    level 10 kapag kahit nasaan si shabs andun ka.. o pinipilit mong makarating...

    ang mataas sa level 10 ay tatawaging...

    LEVEL ELEVEN SEEKERS - mga ayaw ng level 10, hanap ng hanap ng level 11 eh wala na nga eh... o eto na kayo mga seekers!
    ang level na ito ay nangangahulugang nagmamataas ka na sa level 10
    Ibig sabihin nito ikaw ay adik na adik sa sobrang adik mo, naiisip mo na na ang trabaho o pag-aaral ay napakalaking sagabal sa pag pe-PEX!

    INVISIBLE ADIK - mga nagsasabing hindi sila adik pero adik na adik, yung tipong nagmamarathon ng mga tv shows ni shabs...

    SUPREMO - ito ay nangangahulugang, ang bawat araw mo ay masalimuot pag wala ang SHABU ng buhay mo... pwede rin sila yung mga nakapanood ng lahat ng concert ni shabs parang si ate len...

    yan nalang muna dagdagan nalang natin pag nakaisip pa ko...

    nyahahahahha o sumagot naaaa mga adik!!!

    Music: Louie J. Ocampo - Lyrics: Edith M. Gallardo
    Published by Louie J. Ocampo & Margot M. Gallardo

    Ating mga pangarap
    Bulong ng puso’y matutupad
    Pag-ibig natin ang ating yaman
    ’Di magmamaliw kailan pa man
    Ang puso’y……

    Laging mahal kang labis
    Ikaw ang nais
    Na makapiling
    At habang buhay, lahat ng oras
    Lahat ng araw, mamahalin

    Ikaw…ngayon, bukas at kailanman
    Pangalan mong ’sinisigaw
    Labis kitang minamahal
    Kahit na kailan
    Pag-ibig sa ’yo’y walang katapusan
    Mahal kita, walang hanggan
    Ngayon, bukas at kailanman


    At habang buhay, lahat ng oras
    Lahat ng araw, mamahalin

    Ikaw…ngayon, bukas at kailanman
    Pangalan mong ’sinisigaw
    Labis kitang minamahal
    Kahit na kailan
    Pag-ibig sa ’yo’y walang katapusan
    Mahal kita, walang hanggan
    Ngayon, bukas at kailanman
