On The Voice Kids Philippines Season 2, during a coaching session for the Sings Offs, Coach Sarah Geronimo was moved to tears after one of her artists, Kristel Belo, told her how her mom says sorry to her when she disciplines her. Kristel was to sing “Sa Ugoy ng Duyan,” a song about a mother’s unconditional love for her child.
“Umiiyak po ako, pinapalapit niya po ako sa kanya tapos sasabihin pasensiya na anak,” the young singer said.
Kristel then noticed a teary-eyed Sarah and remarked, “Ate Sarah, parang iiyak ka na po.”
“Ganyan ang mga magulang. Kasi alalahanin mo yun kahit may masama kang ginawa sa kanila or may mali kang nagawa siyempre didisiplinahin ka nila. Pero ‘pag nakita nila ang anak nilang nahihirapan, nasasaktan, hindi nila matitiis sasabihin nila, ‘pasensiya na anak.’ Tapos bigla kang yayakapin,” an emotional Sarah replied to her artist.
