Megastar Sharon Cuneta was surprised with birthday greetings from her scholars as she turned 55 on Wednesday, January 6.
In a video uploaded on her YouTube channel, former and present scholars of the music icon expressed their gratitude and wished her the best on her birthday.
"We know that Sharon has always been the kind of person who has never wanted the public to know just how much she wholeheartedly gives financially and how she has emotionally invested in her numerous scholars that she has helped over so many years," wrote her team in the caption of the video.
"But on her 55th birthday, The Mega Team and her proud scholars, past and present, want you all to know how grateful they are to her and her amazingly loving and giving spirit."
Reacting to the touching surprise on Instagram, Sharon said: "OH.EHM.GEE. This made me really cry. Thank you! Kainis kayo binuko niyo ako pero THANK YOU!"
In her succeeding post, Sharon said her 55th is one her happiest birthdays ever.
"What a happy, glorious day it’s been. One of my happiest birthdays ever! Thank You dear Heavenly Father. I praise and glorify only YOU!" she said.
Earlier, Sharon said she's taking a much-needed break as she marks her birthday.
“Birthday’s coming up and I chose to leave the city. Needed to get away and LET GO of all things and people negative and toxic," she said.
“Thank God for this opportunity and for huge lessons He woke me up to just before the end of the past year! Needed this. The beach, a pool villa. Heck I deserve this! Nothing like fresh, clean air and a COVID-free environment! Before going back to reality and doing what I can for others. Sometimes you just gotta put yourself FIRST," she added.
