Sarah Geronimo proudly raises PH flag at Billboard Women in Music Awards

March 8 ------ Asia's Popstar Royalty Sarah Geronimo was honored with the Global Force Award at the Billboard Women in Music Awards at the YouTube Theater in Inglewood, California making her the first Filipina to receive such recognition. 


In her speech, the 35-year-old thanked God; her parents, whom she regarded as the very first people who "believed and supported" her; her longtime management, Viva Entertainment, led by Vic del Rosario; her Popsters fans; and actor-husband Matteo Guidicelli, who escorted her to the glittering ceremony. "Thank you, Billboard, for celebrating women in music and for giving our country, the Philippines, this special recognition. Thank you, Billboard Philippines, for your commitment to bringing our music and more Filipino artists to a global audience," she continued. "I humbly accept this award on behalf of every excellent Filipino artist back home and all over the world. This honor belongs to all of us. For me, this recognition signifies courage and hope. [The] courage to accept and embrace oneself and... break boundaries and rise above all the setbacks and challenges that every artist needs to face. And the hope that one day, this meaningful moment will bridge the gap between the Philippines and other nations, collaborating and uniting as one to create change and positivity in the world through music. Once again, I am Sarah Geronimo from the Philippines. Mabuhay ang OPM. Maraming maraming. Salamat po, [Long live OPM. Thank you very much]," she ended. 


Geronimo attended the awards night in a bespoke nude Michael Cinco gown.
