Sarah’s B-day concert at Big Dome in July

- Ricky Lo () - May 26, 2007 - 12:00am

Sarah Geronimo is turning 18 on July 25 and she’s celebrating her special day nine days in advance with her second major concert slated on July 14 at the Araneta Coliseum.

Titled Sarah Geronimo in Motion, the concert features a powerhouse list of guest performers including Gary Valenciano, Jericho Rosales, Sam Milby, Mark Bautista, John Prats, Louie Ocampo and Ai-Ai de las Alas. Director is JB San Pedro, with Marc Lopez as musical director.

A week later, on July 21, the same concert will be mounted at Expo Filipino in Pampanga, but only with Sam and Ai-Ai as guest stars.

“The concert is so titled because of the phenomenal surge in Sarah’s career,” said Vic del Rosario Jr., Sarah’s manager. “The four-part concert will spring a lot of surprises. It’s going to be a different show. Fans will see Sarah dance for the first time.”

These past four years after she was discovered in the Star For a Night talent search, blessings have been pouring on Sarah. “I can’t believe it!” she said.

She’s a popular endorser (not only of consumer products but of candidates in the recent campaign), in-demand for concerts both here and abroad, and has starred in a few movies and several TV shows. Last December, she was voted The Most Popular Household Favorite on Philippine Television by the Anak TV Seal. Recently, she received the Guillermo Mendoza Memorial Award as The Most Popular Female Recording Artist.

Pinoy film in Toronto Fest

Key Lime Pie, by film student Trevor Jimenez (nephew of The STAR L.A. correspondent Baby K. Jimenez), is one of the 11 films participating in the fourth annual Student Film Showcase hosted by the Toronto International Film Festival Group (TIFFG) in association with the Film School Consortium, a national group of 15 universities and colleges. The films were chosen from several entries coming from all over Canada.

Established in 2004, the Student Film Showcase screens the finest in student films and celebrates the burgeoning talent of Canada’s young filmmakers.

“The creativity and quality of films in this year’s Student Film Showcase demonstrates the vibrant talent of our country’s future filmmakers,” said programmers Agata Smoluch and Del Sorbo. “We recognize the importance of nurturing these aspiring filmmakers and are extremely proud of being a venue for these artists to present and develop their artistic vision and craft.”
