WATCH: Sarah G. Performs After Pope’s Holy Mass in UAE

In case you were unable to attend the Holy Mass held by Pope Francis in Abu Dhabi, don’t worry as we’ve got photos of the historic Papal visit. What’s more, we’d like to share photos and videos of a famous Filipino celebrity who performed at the event: Sarah Geronimo!

That’s right! The Philippine’s very own Pop Princess took to the stage and sang inspirational songs after the Pontiff’s mass. More than 130,000 Catholic faithfuls — many of which are Filipinos — attended the event, which was held at Zayed Sports City Stadium in Abu Dhabi.

Philippine Pop Princess Performs During Papal Visit

This is actually not the first time that Geronimo, also called “Sarah G.” by her multitude of fans, has visited the country. Previously, she performed during the UAE runs of her Perfect 10 and This 15 Me concert tours in 2014 and 2018, respectively.

The Filipino pop star has always been vocal about her faith, which shows in her recent performance during the Papal visit. Notably, she wore beautiful creations by Dubai-based Filipino designer Furne One (who also designed Maymay Entrata’s gorgeous gowns during her modeling stint at Arab Fashion Week last year), ABS-CBN News reported.

Sarah G. performed inspirational songs at the event, including: Andra Day’s “Rise Up,” Andrea Bocelli and Celine Dion’s “The Prayer,” Michael Jackson’s “Man in the Mirror,” and Miley Cyrus’ “The Climb.” She also performed her own hit single, “Forever’s Not Enough.”

Photos of videos of Sarah G.’s performance spread online, shared by her fans in the UAE. In one video, she shared a prayer by St. Francis of Assisi: “Where there is hatred, let us sow love. Where there is offence, kahit mahirap po (even if it’s hard), let us forgive. Let us be a part to heal the world.”

Remarkably, this wasn’t the first time that Sarah G. sang at a Papal event. In 1995, she was one of the performers during the visit of the late Pope John Paul II to the Philippines.

As for Pope Francis, he just made history as the first Pontiff to visit an Arab Gulf state. His visit reflects the diverse and open culture of the UAE, which is a Muslim country. Perhaps it is no coincidence that this event happened during the current “Year of Tolerance.” Amazing!
