But before that happened, she recalled the moment she had with Boy Abunda back when she was only a mere contestant on Star Circle Quest.
One of the most heart-wrenching comments Abunda gave to Sandara at the time were “wala kang talent!” and “binili mo ang text votes mo!”, which didn’t bring her down but used it to fuel the fire inside her.
With a chip on her shoulder, Sandara took Abunda’s words with a grain of salt and used it as a motivation. Now, the “Pambansang Krungkrung” is one of Asia’s hottest superstars, especially in Korea.
Sandara displayed maturity and humility that earned her praises from her fans and from Boy Abunda as well. Her success is mirrored by her personality, and it’s safe to say that Abunda’s comments brought out the best in her and carved her way up to superstardom.
Being a judge for Pinoy Boyband Superstar, she completely understands a judge’s perspective especially from Abunda’s standpoint when she was a contestant and that is why she’s successful.
