MANILA, Philippines – It seems that Filipino performers still haven’t lost their touch despite the emergence of young foreign stars.
A study conducted by Cartoon Network showed that Sarah Geronimo is the favorite singer of children aged seven to 14, getting a score of 17%.
Tied at second place with a score of 8% each are "The X Factor Philippines" judge Charice and Canadian teen idol Justin Bieber.
Taylor Swift ranked fourth, while Bruno Mars rounds out the Top 5.
Cartoon Network’s “New Generations 2012” study aims to look at the preferences and lifestyles of Filipino kids. It involved face-to-face interviews with 1,000 randomly selected kids from Metro Manila, Cebu and Davao.
The study, which was conducted from February 25 to March 26, covered socioeconomic classes A, B, C and D.
