Billboard Philippines Women In Music was a night full of surprises, one of them being Matteo Guidicelli presenting Sarah Geronimo the evening’s most coveted Woman Of The Year.

To introduce the iconic pop star, Guidicelli shares, “Through her songs, films, she has made people fall in love with her over and over again. I, myself, am a personal witness to this woman’s fortitude and determination to do her very, very, very best to make dreams come true.”

He goes on to describe the strength and courage he’s witnessed through the years and she’s continued to be a fierce force in music without ever losing her heart and vulnerability. He ends his speech with, “Today, she’s an artist, a producer, a businesswoman, a visionary. Ladies and gentlemen, she is my wife and she is our Pop Star Royalty. I couldn’t be more proud and grateful to present his award to the first Billboard Philippines Woman of the Year, Sarah Geronimo.”
