I HAVE been a keen admirer and supporter of the Pop Star Princess Sarah Geronimo for the past few years now. I recall how I have come to like her so much to the point of me feeling like a big sister to her now. I think it was because I watched one of her sterling performances in ASAP that made me truly admire her singing prowess and even dancing talent. It's very rare to see a singer who can dance very well while belting out the high notes and without running out of breath.
From then on, I avidly awaited her performance every Sunday. It's even interesting to know that I will only get to know a song or even get the hang of singing it after hearing it from Sarah herself. There was one occasion that I needed to host an event in the university that I also copied her signature hairstyle and make-up so that I can at least try to look like her.
When she had a concert here in Pampanga two years ago, I moved heaven and earth just to get free tickets to watch her show. I painstakingly joined in a contest, and thankfully, I won the last batch of the tickets. Had I not been that lucky to score the concert passes, I would have pretended to be one of the utility people or the technical staff just to get inside the music hall. I am desperate to be able to watch Sarah perform in my beloved hometown. When the Tala dance became a craze, I spent hours just to learn how to dance it step by step.
It's not very hard to fall in love with Sarah, whom I consider as my girl crush. She embodies not only a total performer, but also a very obedient, generous, and God-fearing daughter. She has certainly worked hard to be where she is now in her career, but more importantly, as people would say, Sarah has given a more comfortable life for her family.
I also grew up with a strict mom, and I know that my mother did that to protect me. Initially, I know that that is also the intention of Sarah's mother, Mommy Divine. As fans, we knew that she turned down a lot of her suitors like Rayver Cruz and Gerald Anderson because of her parents. Eventually, seven years ago, Matteo Guidicelli stepped forward and won her heart. This, although Sarah's parents are still not a hundred percent favorable of their relationship.
Last February 20, 2020, (look at the numbers 02-20-2020!) Matteo and Sarah shocked us all by having an intimate private wedding. It was so secretly done that Sarah's parents were not even informed and became part of it. It's easy to deduce the fact that they are still against Matteo, but for heart's sake, why can't they let Sarah be happy and free to decide for herself? Ultimately, that's what she did. She married Matteo despite her whole family not around to witness that special and unforgettable moment in her life.
It's truly heartbreaking for Sarah to not feel happy on her wedding day because she disobeyed her parents with her decision to finally follow her heart. But I can just imagine how Sarah felt on that day and time, the feeling of being so helplessly in love that you are not even thinking about what other people, not even your parents will say or feel about your decision. It's undeniable that these two truly love each other and that no one and nothing can ever stop them.
I know in time, everything will heal. Love always prevails, and when Sarah can prove to her parents that she did it out of love, we can be sure that they can always open their doors once again to their precious daughter. To Sarah, my forever girl crush and idol, be happy and enjoy being married to the love of your life. Know that many people are certainly happy for you and Matteo. Congratulations Mrs. Guidicelli!
