Sarah quits GMA, joins ABS-CBN

from FunFare, The Philippine Star 012904:

By the time you read this, Sarah Geronimo should have quit GMA 7 (where she co-hosts the Sunday show S.O.P. and the talent show Star For A Night, her stepping stone to stardom) and is ready to sign an exclusive contract with ABS-CBN which, according to Funfare's Bohol Avenue DPA, has "big things lined up for Sarah," including her own soap.
Described as "the new Regine Velasquez" because of her powerful voice, Sarah, 15, is not the overnight sensation that everbody thinks she is. Before she won as Star For A Night, the talent search produced by Viva Television, Sarah joined -- and lost -- other singing competitions. She even did a bit part in the Camille Prats-starrer Sarah And Munting Prinsesa (a title that now fits Sarah to a T).
Her win as Star For A Night ame with a house and lot and P1 million, part of which was used by the Geronimo family to pay old debts and the tuition fee of Sarah's siblings and to expand the small family business. And also: A recording contract with Viva Records which produced her debut album, Sarah Geronimo: Popstar A Dream Come True, which has been certified "platinum."
Throught it all, Sarah has remained level-headed (she should be, otherwise a premature bug-headedness could weigh her down the drain faster than she could say, "Is this all a dream?"). Besides the album, Sarah has also starred in her own (two) smash-hit solo concerts and appeared in two Viva movies, Captain Barbell and Filipinas, both shown at last December's Metro Filmfest.
Watch Sarah's star grown even bigger and brighter.

    I prefer GMA over ABS, I dont know the reason bakit sya lumipat..i thought she would concentrate
    on her singing career first, di naman nya kelangan ngayon ng soap opera o sariling TV show..
    these projects would soon follow..Mas ok sa akin kung nag stay sya sa GMA along with Regine and Ogie,
    I believe mas maaalagaan sya dun..It's nice seeing her at Search for a star along w/ regine and the contestants
    who look up on her, but it's their decision(kung totoo man to) ,i wish her luck..good news
    cguro sa mga nasa abroad because the could see her now on TFC..but in my opinion, sana nag stick
    na muna sya s GMA..

    HALA!!! BAKIT NAMN???? WEL OK LANG MAS MALAKAS ANG DOS!!! DIBA!!! AMS MAGIGING MAKAPANGYARIHAN ANG DOS NGAYON HAWAK NA NILA SI SARAH WOW!!! conf.gif :nono
  • :angry: GRRRR!!! Kainis talaga yang ABS-CBN na yan! They always pirate great artist from GMA 7. Diba bawal ang pirata??? Dapat ipahuli kay Bong Revilla ang ABS-CBN...

    Nagulat nga rin me, na nabasa sa FUNFARE na sarah QUITS GMA, and joining ABS!!! :angry: I never thought this will happen. I really like sarah pa naman din! As an artist! I think maganda naman ang chemistry nila ni Ms Regine eh! Ang hindi ko nga lang malaman kung bakit siya lumipat sa kabila??? And what made her decide???

    Ito ang nababagay sa kabilang channel eh! :bite (Yum! Yum! Ang sarap kainin!)

    Sarah, sana you should have stayed alittle bit longer sa GMA 7. Sayang talaga iyong opportunity mo na BAKA mawala nalang bigla... SOAP OPERA??? You should have not considered this option... Kasi, kung totoosin, magsikat pa rin ang mga nakukuha nating mga SOAP OPERA from korea, hongkong and other parts of the world... Nakikita mo ba ang carreer ni CLAUDINE B. and KRISTINE H.? halos wala nang kinang diba?

    And in professionalism, there is SUCH A WORD na tinatawag na LOYALTY!!! And besides, look at where MARTIN NIEVERA and POPS FERNANDEZ now? DIba wala na rin sila sa DOS? Kasi, the management think di na sila mapapakinabangan.... I hope this will not happened to you!

    ALAM mo?!?! Siguro, isa ako dun sa mga naunang bumili ang album mo! Kasi i really do believe in your talent. And i really believe on GMA 7! Ika nga nila, "KAPUSO!!!". Sayang talaga! I dont like buying CD's na produced by ABS-CBN... BAkit? Di ko lang talaga feel!!! Kita mo sila martin, even na andun siya sa DOS, ang mga albums niya hindi galing sa DOS... Kasi may REASON siguro si martin.... (Yan ang hindi ko na alam!) One last, naaalala mo ba iyong JEREMIAH? Diba sikat na sikat sila noon??? Look where they are now? Wala na masyado sa music industry... Dont blame in on priracy, ganyan talaga ang buhay sa DOS! Habang kumikinang ka, papakinabangan ka muna nila... Kapag naubos na ang kinang ng bituin mo, they are willing to let you go! That's the SAD PART!

    Last na! Sana pwede mo pang bawiin ang mga pangyayari??? Wag ka na sanang umalis sa GMA 7! PLEASE!!!!!! Balik ka na sa kay ATE REGINE! Kung talagang matutuloy yang plans mo, GOOD LUCK NALANG!!!

    God bless you! I'll be missing SARAH GERONIMO sa gma 7!!! Sana, kuminang pa ang bituin mo kapag nasa ABS-CBN ka na!!!

    Very much DISAPPOINTED,
    simply_rhobeen!
    =8-D

    Last, kung yung next album mo eh released by ABS-CBN (or should we say STAR RECORDS), baka 100times ko munang pag-iisipang bilhin... hindi dahil galit ako sa iyo ha! GALIT AKO SA DOS for pirating talents for SIETE!!!!! MADADAYA!!!!!!!!

  • edited 9:20AM
    ganun?
  • edited 9:20AM
    Hi Ate Sarah!!! To tell you the truth talaga, I'm very disappointed! Di ko inexpect na lilipat ka na lang basta-basta sa DOS! Kase, pinasikat ka ng GMA ng husto and then you're just leaving them ng ganun ganun na lang. :angry:
    Tsaka, puro ka-chipan lang sa DOS. dry.gif alt='<_<' ] Remember mo ba ung mall tour mo sa SM Pampanga? Cguro malabo mo ng matandaan ito: ung batang lalaki na binigyan mo ng tissue dahil pinagpapawisan dahil sa dami ng tao? uhm.gif Sana malaman mo na mas maraming nagmamahal sayo sa GMA! :thumbs Dahil, may shows ka dito at napapakita mo ng husto ang mga talents mo. Tsaka one more thing...sandali ka lang sa DOS. Gagamitin ka lang nila. On the brighter side, well, happy naman ako sa natatamasa mo ngayon. Sana hindi lumalaki ulo mo ngayon at humble ka pa rin. :rolleyes: Your first album is great! Magaganda songs mo and of course, voice mo. Back to business, alam mo ba sa klase namen, ikaw ang number 1 naming singer. Nung nalaman namin na lilipat ka na nga(sana di totoo) we're all shocked and disappointed. :angry: Pero sana magchange-mind ka na lang. Dahil thumbs down sa DOS!
    Hope you will understand your fans! Not just only them but the persons behind who help you. :approve Well good luck na lang sayo! And God Bless! Love you!-GIRL not a boy :thumbs

    i'm disappointed, pero sana hindi ito totoo. pero bilib talaga ako sa galing ng abs sa pamimirata ng talents. siguro naging dahilan din yung sobrang dami ng commitments na ibinigay ng manager ni sarah sa kanya. imagine, umaabot sa apat na shows ang kailangang gawin ni Sarah sa iba't-ibang lugar (hayok kasi sa pera yung manager ni sarah). kaya ayun, nagkasakit tuloy sya. sana binigyan na lang sya ng ibang manager ng viva. malamang kasi sa abs, sikat ka ngayon pero bukas hindi na. wala nga akong pinanonood na show doon eh.

    malapit na rin naman yung finals ng search for a star kaya may pwedeng ipalit ang viva kay Sarah. pero sana hindi pa rin totoo yung paglipat nya.
