Sarah Geronimo ready for 'The Great Unknown Unplugged'

Sarah Geronimo is a hundred percent ready and energized for her special show on Nov. 29, 8 p.m. at the Kia Theatre.

In The Great Unknown Unplugged, Sarah will again display her flair in singing. “Yes, 100% back na. ‘Yung mindset ko is talagang energized, mas motivated to work even harder,” enthused Sarah in an interview after her two-month break. “I’d like to focus more sa music ko at i-promote ‘yung mga nakaraang album ko. Hindi ko kasi talaga na-promote nang maayos. We are planning na talagang mailabas ‘yung magagandang tracks dito sa latest album ko. Pitching pa lang ng new movie. Concert planning stage pa lang din po, TV shows, wala pa po,” she adds.

Viewers and loyal fans were the true winners in It’s Showtime’s monthlong seventh anniversary celebration, aptly titled “haPITOgether,” as it served up non-stop surprises and performances that showed what the program is all about.

Serving as the highlight of the October festivities, this year’s “Magpasikat Week” performances were even more ambitious and spectacular as the hosts faced pressure and tougher competition.

For their daring and death-defying performance, the team of Anne Curtis, Amy Perez, and Joey Marquez was declared this year’s “Magpasikat” champion. Aside from Tsang Amy at Tsong Joey’s aerial stunts, what even amazed the crowd was the performance of Anne, and GirlTrends Dawn and Krissha, who rappelled and performed on the side of a building. The group, who was also composed of GirlTrends Miho and Maika and Hashtags Paulo and Ryle, won P300,000, which they donated to their chosen charity.

Twin sisters Joj and Jai Agpangan also stunned viewers with their breathtaking aerial stunts performance in the finals of “Clash of Celebrities.” They won P100,000 and beat other finalists, namely actor-rapper Young JV, beauty queen Bea Rose Santiago, The Voice Kids contestant Kyle Echarri, and former PBB housemate Shey Bustamante.

Even the past champions returned via the “Clash of Champions” to impress the madlang people once again. The competition declared 2015 Halo-Haloween grand champion Names Going Wild, which won P100,000.

Kicking off the “haPITOgether” celebration last month was the Quarter 3 semi-finals of “Tawag ng Tanghalan,” which saw Noven Belleza and Eumee Capile bagging the spots in the singing competition’s grand finals.

Aside from these surprises, It’s Showtime ultimately made the madlang people happy by giving away prizes every day, such as appliances and a trip to Hong Kong.

Meanwhile, continue to tune in to the vocal battles in “Tawag ng Tanghalan” as it scours for the best singers in the country. In the Quarter 4 of the competition, Mindanao’s Jeramie Sanico and Metro Manila’s Hazelyn Cascano already made it as semi-finalists.
