No wonder GMA Network’s The Clash grand champion Golden Canedo somehow looked familiar to some of the viewers.
As soon as she appeared in the competition, netizens have began posting about her resemblance to the Popstar Royalty, Sarah Geronimo.
Golden was immediately asked about how she felt about the comparison. She answered that she’s happy and thankful as Sarah is her idol. “Happy po ako dahil parang pinahawig po ako sa idolo ko po na si Sarah G na sobrang galing po at saka sobrang sikat, kaya po nagpapasalamat din po ako na nakikita nila si Sarah G sa akin.”
But does she feel any pressure being compared to such a veteran singer. She answered no.
“Hindi naman po kasi, di ba po, mas magaling po siya, alam po natin. Mas nacha-challenge po ako na mas pagbutihin po kasi nakikita po nila ako na Sarah G.”
It’s Showtime appearance.
Prior to winning the contest, did you know that she also appeared on It’s Showtime’s Tawag ng Tanghalan?
It happened back in October 2017. She used her name Roma Golden Apa-Ap when she competed singing her rendition of Jona’s version of ‘Pusong Ligaw’.
Unfortunately, she did not win in the said segment.
Golden shared how she prayed really hard not to get the boot during pressure-packed moments of the The Clash.
“Kinabahan po ako, sinabi ko sa sarili ko baka makauwi na po ako sa Cebu, parang yung pagod ko hindi po nagbunga, kaya pray lang po ako ng pray.”
