MANILA – Sarah Geronimo finally broke her silence regarding her health condition after her recent spate of canceled events.

Refusing to go into details, Geronimo exclusively told ABS-CBN News on Thursday that she is now doing fine, but there are health concerns that she still needs to address.

“Okay naman [ako ngayon]. Hindi naman po siya malalang sakit. Hindi na lang po ako magbibigay ng details pero inaayos naman po,” she said. “Kailangan lang i-improve yung health. Kailangan lang bigyan ng atensyon kung bakit nahihirapan sa ganito, or sa ganyan.”

Does this mean she will take a break from showbiz?

“Magkakaroon lang ng bakasyon. This month of July hanggang sa August, magbabakasyon lang… Baka po may out of the country rin. Pahinga lang,” she said.

In April, Geronimo signed a contract with ABS-CBN. Asked what her fans can expect from her in the next two years, the singer-actress said: “Hopefully makahanap po tayo ng magandang movie project. Sa TV, kasama po diyan yung ASAP every Sunday.”

She also hinted that she would like to return as a mentor on “The Voice” in its future seasons. “Hopefully po [in the following seasons], sana,” she said.

Nonetheless, Geronimo said Sharon Cuneta, who replaced her as mentor on the show, has her full support.

“Napanood ko yung pilot episode, masaya. Siyempre nami-miss [ko yung show] pero I’m happy na si Ms. Sharon ang nandoon kasi napaka-refreshing makita ni Ms. Sharon na lumabas yung napaka-youthful na side niya, napaka-humble, napaka-charming kung paano niya kausapin ang mga bata. Natural lang,” she said.

The 27-year-old singer said she is grateful that her fans continue to support her.

“Salamat nami-miss niyo ako. Pasensya na but thank you, thank you para po sa lahat na patuloy pa rin na sumusuporta at rumerespeto sa akin. Maraming salamat po,” she said.
