For the second time, Popstar Royalty Sarah Geronimo represented the Philippines at ASEAN-Japan Music Festival.

During the recent virtual show, Sarah delivered a moving message.

“The past year has been very challenging for all of us. We have been affected in so many ways and have experienced different kinds of loss — from losing jobs, opportunities, hope, and the most painful, losing a loved one,” she started. “Our minds are filled with anxious thoughts, and we ask, ‘When will this end?’”

Sarah said that what “truly matters” these days are “life, family, time.”

She encouraged everyone to be united in showing “empathy” and “care” for one another.

“Let go of resentment. Choose peace and freedom over hate and imprisonment. Let love and kindness rule our hearts every day,” added the wife of Matteo Guidicelli.

“Life is a gift that we should be grateful for. If there is one thing I learned, my faith in God is the only constant thing I can rely on during times of uncertainty.”

She went on to say that even though it may seem hard to do, she hopes everyone will remain hopeful.

“Let us continue to celebrate life because this too shall pass. Let us continue to create beautiful memories with our loved ones however we can and while we still can,” the Kapamilya star declared.

Sarah said that music is a very powerful tool.

“Music is a universal language that speaks to our soul through every stage of life… It can heal a wounded heart, uplift one spirit and bring renewed hope,” she said.

“I do hope our music and performances can be a source of inspiration for all of you. Once again, thank you so much and stay safe.”
