Sarah Geronimo surprised her fans with her Abu Dhabi concert, where she took the stage wearing two different uber-elegant designs from a local designer

As if the Papal visit couldn’t get anymore monumental, Filipino songstress Sarah Geronimo delivered a surprise performance yesterday just after the Pope’s Holy Mass in Abu Dhabi — a visit that was a historic first for the Arabian Peninsula. She took the stage at the Zayed Sports City Stadium, performing in two different dresses by Dubai-based Amato Couture.

Furne One, the label’s co-founder and creative director, dressed her in two simple yet stage-ready designs. The first was a white jumpsuit with a Mandarin collar and a sheer cape, the bodice adorned with crystals and floral embellishments.

The second was an intricately-embroidered blue gown with a fitted bodice and intricate floral lace detailing. She wore her hair slicked back in a ponytail. Furne One said in a statement, “Both white and blue colours symbolize peace and unity, a perfect statement for this momentous event in our history.”

It was by no means the pop princess's first UAE performance and Amato Couture has proven to be her go-to brand to wow the crowd. The brand itself is a Dubai-based label by Filipino designer Furne One, which neatly pays tribute to both Geronimo's own heritage and to the region.
Surpisingly, this isn't her first time doing a papal performance, either. She sang in front of Pope John Paul II as part of a line-up of performers when he visited the Philippines in 1995.

The Filipino beauty performed a number of her hit songs along with a few added Michael Jackson tributes to a crowd of over 100,000 people at the Papal Mass.

 

Amato Couture is a popular label among many other artists, including Jennifer Lopez, Nicki Minaj, Camila Cabello, Ariana Grande and Katy Perry.
