My Mommy, My Idol
by Charice Pempengco
Among our Philippine singing stars, I admire Sarah Geronimo whom I call "Ate
Sarah." She is such a good person. Whenever we would meet, she's the one who
would go out of her way to greet me, so I'm very honored. Whenever Ate Sarah
sings, you can really feel the emotions of her song. I love listening to her
extraordinary singing voice. She is just so talented. I am grateful for and
will never forget Ate Sarah's advice to me: Huwag daw lumaki ang ulo ko, to
always be humble.
The other local singing diva whom I admire a lot is Regine Velasquez. She's
already a legend and everybody idolizes her including my mother Raquel
"Kaye" Relucio Pempengco. My mommy has bought almost all of Ate Regine's
CDs and tapes and watched her videos. She's a sweet person. Not many people
know that she's actually a shy person. Her voice is so powerful - sweet but
powerful. Before our trip to Los Angeles last February, Ate Regine invited
me to dinner at her home and cooked carbonara for us. She's an amazingly
good cook, too!
Ate Regine's advice is for me to stay on in the United States, because she
said that's where the big opportunities are for singing. However, at the
moment, I have no plans to migrate to the U.S.. I just travel back and forth
because I'm not yet sure what the future of my career will be there, and I
really love being here in the Philippines.
