Another achievement for singer Sarah Geronimo has been announced: she will be representing the Philippines in the upcoming 2018 Japan-ASEAN Music Festival, which will be staged in Tokyo, Japan on October 4, 2018.
The news was announced by the Embassy of Japan in the Philippines Facebook page, which said, “The #EmbassyOfJapan, in cooperation with VIVA Entertainment, Inc., are proud to announce that award-winning Filipino singer Sarah Geronimo will be representing the Philippines in the 2018 Japan-ASEAN Music Festival to be held in Tokyo, Japan this coming October 4, 2018.”
Geronimo even invited fellow Filipinos in Japan to watch her, saying, “Hello to our kababayans there in Japan… Let’s all enjoy the show as I’ll be there with other ASEAN artists and soon the experience will be seen on Philippine TV. See you there. Salamat po.”
