Sarah Asher Tua Geronimo (born July 25, 1988) the third of four children of Delfin Geronimo and Divina Tua-Geronimo. Sarah grew up in a rented house in Sta. Cruz, Manila. She is also the niece of TV host of “Ating Alamin”, Gerry Geronimo.
To say that Sarah possesses a natural love to perform is an understatement. As a child, she actively participated in school programs and joined many singing contests throughout her childhood. At the age of three, she was casted in the kiddie show “Pen pen de Sarapen.” She also took part in “For Kids Only” and “Hiraya Manawari” and later on became part of the first batch of stars in the hit kiddie afternoon program “Ang TV.” Yet it was Sarah’s talent for singing that would cause her father to focus on developing it by enrolling her at the “Center for Pop Music, Philippines” at six years of age. Her father also encouraged little Sarah to train at home for two hours each day.
Sarah continues to enthrall Filipino audiences locally and abroad. In 2007 alone, Sarah has toured major cities in the US, Australia, Canada, Europe and UAE.
She is currently a mainstay of ASAP ’07, a once-a-week, noontime musical variety show, and also hosts Little Big Superstar, a reality star search program for aspiring child performers that has recently concluded its third season. She also takes the female lead role in primetime drama Pangarap Na Bituin opposite Jericho Rosales, that is currently aired in ABS-CBN.
Also, she staged a sold-out second major solo concert last July 14, 2007 at the Araneta Coliseum entitled Sarah Geronimo In Motion where she astonished her audience with her ultimate dancing skills and unwavering multi-faceted singing prowess. Sarah also concluded Sarah Geronimo In Motion US tour last August-September 2007 with an astounding reception from Filipino communities in the US.
After staging her highly successful second solo major concert at the Araneta Coliseum, she released her fourth studio album entitled Taking Flight which has since sold over 15,000 copies, achieving Gold status in a short period after its release.
