Sarah Geronimo confirms that she will return as a coach for The Voice of the Philippines


101713-Sarah1_Main.jpgSarah Geronimo admitted that being a coach in The Voice of the Philippines had not been easy for her and that she had a tough time dealing with all her bashers. “Biggest challenge recently ‘yung sa The Voice kasi may mga bashers na nagsasabi na, ‘Hindi siya credible, wala namang sense ‘yung sinasabi niya.’ Tapos maarte daw ako masyado lalo sa blind auditions kasi hindi ako ganon ka-frequent umikot sa mga auditionees,” she relayed in an interview during her contract signing with Xtreme Magic Sing last October 16, 2013, Wednesday.

Despite the difficulties that being a coach entailed, Sarah chose to take on the role wholeheartedly. “Pero tinanggap ko ‘to eh, kailangan pangatawanan ko ‘yung trabaho at ‘yung task na binigay sa akin. Dapat mabigyan ko talaga siya ng hard work, dedication at sincerity. Talagang tinapos ko, sabi ko this is not about me, hindi naman ako ‘yun eh so what kung i-bash nila ako, ‘yung artists ko ‘yun eh, ‘yung team ko, so talagang nag-concentrate na lang ako sa kanila at ‘yun natapos ko naman.

The Popstar Princess clarified that she is not bitter over Mitoy Yonting’s win but Klarisse de Guzman, who was the runner-up, would always be the winner for her. “Sobra sobrang proud ako sa team ko especially kay Klarisse (de Guzman). Talagang sa puso ng maraming tao talagang siya ‘yung panalo. Of course I’m happy for Mitoy, The Voice of the Philippines, pero lahat naman sila panalo at proud ako kay Klarisse kasi napakagaling niyang bata at napaka-humble niya.”

She added, “Siyempre may lungkot [na di nanalo si Klarisse] di ba? Kasi ‘yun ‘yung the best na artist mo sa team mo. Siguro part talaga ng competition na meron mananalo, meron matatalo pero sa puso ko siya ‘yung panalo talaga. Pero lagi kung sinasabi na hindi ako bitter, masaya siyempre ako kay Mitoy, siyempre pangarap ni Mitoy natupad at God's will ‘yun, ‘yun naman po ang pinagdadasal ko palagi ano ‘yung will ng Diyos. There’s a reason for everything na hindi si Klarisse nanalo.”

With all the difficulties she encountered as a coach, would she still want to be part of the second season of The Voice of the Philippines? “Yes, opo nag-yes na po kami for the second season. Nung una, ayaw ko kasi traumang-trauma na ako eh pero sabi ko, si Ms. Lea (Salonga) nag-yes na rin. Masarap sa pakiramdam na nagiging bahagi ka ng pagtupad ng pangarap ng ibang tao, ng aspiring singers, and in a way nakakatulong ka na din kung ano man ‘yung naibigay mo, naisha-share mo sa mga tao, so masarap, so sabi ko yes, opo,” she revealed.
