ONE of the Philippines’ finest and most sought-after singer/actress Sarah Geronimo once again conquered Cagayan de Oro City’s Limketkai Atrium with her Record Breaker Philippine concert tour. MUNI Productions brought the concert over to the city on August 6, Friday, after Sarah’s success with The Next One in the City of Golden Friendship a year ago.

The concert was already starting while people were still getting themselves in the atrium. At one point when the Patron B gate was about to close, a stampede almost occurred as people without tickets tried to get in. Due to lack of security on that particular gate, some of these people actually got themselves in.

Sarah pumped the night open with the concert’s official song Record Breaker and got everyone in the crowd jumping for joy and excitement. Even the crowd from outside of the atrium could hear the celebration in that they also did join with the screaming, singing and dancing. The jam-packed atrium filled with Sarah’s fans and supporters once again proved of her superstar status in the entire showbiz industry, may it be on film, television and music of course.

The concert featured performances by the new ‘Ppop’ group ‘Xlr8′, a Filipino version of the trending Kpop groups, who actually exceeded the audiences’ expectations that they won’t just be any sloppy-preppy-corny-copycats. They took their performance to the next level- just the right thing that should’ve happened. These boys weren’t just good looking, they’ve got the voices and the moves.

Charlie Green, British Got Talent 2008 contestant, and one of the fresh faces today in the Philippine music scene, was also there to charm the crowd and sing with the pop princess and have also made solo performances that included his debut single Perslab, a remake of a Hotdog original hit.

Jimmy Marquez, who used to be Billy Crawford’s substitute during The Next One concert here in CDO, came out of the stage and made the crowd even more excited. He thanked the CDO crowd for if not of them, and their overwhelming response to his performance last year, he wouldn’t have been joining Sarah’s Philippine and even international tours, he claims.

Christian Bautista also joined the repertoire and serenaded CDO with his medley of the current OPM hits such as Ngiti, Paano na Kaya and Ikaw Na Nga. He then rendered to the audience a medley from his collection of Jose Mari Chan songs that included his latest single Beautiful Girl. Before he exited the center-stage, he did a duet with Sarah for Please Be Careful With My Heart’, another Chan hit.

Sarah’s songs for the night included a Louie Ocampo medley, a tribute to the late Michael Jackson where she interpreted the hits One Day In My Life, Ben, I’ll Be There and They Don’t Care About Us.

Finally she ended the night with a medley of her released hit singles when she was still starting in the business. To Love You More, Forever’s Not Enough and How Could You Say You Love Me were the three songs that she did a very impressive new rendition of, take note, with no any single backup singers. Definitely astounding.

It is Sarah’s outstanding talent for singing coupled with her amazing versatility (talk about her every Sunday surprises on ABS-CBN’s ASAP XV and two ultimate box office hits), her passion for the things she does and most of all the ever un-effaceable charm and humility that draws the crowd so much more into loving this 22-year-old successful young woman. Surely CDO will want even more of her after that night.

The Record Breaker Philippine tour started on July 10th this year in Baguio City and is still set to hop from one city to another until the first of October.
