MANILA, Philippines - Pop Star Princess Sarah Geronimo turned emotional as she performed the song "Smile", one of the favorite songs of King of Comedy Dolphy.

Geronimo and Dolphy share the same birthday, July 25.

In her show "Sarah G Live" on Sunday night, Geronimo thanked Dolphy for all the things she learned from him.

She said that humility is the greatest thing she learned from the country's greatest comedian.

"Mga Kapamilya, alam niyo po sa tuwing sini-celebrate ko ang birthday ko ay naalala ko po siya lagi, kasi pareho po kami ng birthday na July 25. Tito Dolphy, sa sandaling panahon na nakatrabaho ko  po kayo, hinding hindi ko po makakalimutan ang aral na napulot ko sa inyo. Talagang na-witness ko po ang tunay na kahulugan ng isang pagiging bituin. Ang pagiging mapagkumbaba, ang maging inspirasyon at higit sa lahat ang pagkukumbaba na sa kabila ng lahat ng paghihirap, ng problema may dahilan, maraming dahilan para maging masaya at mas marami pang dahilan para magbigay ng saya,' Geronimo said.

She also condoled to Quizon family and thanked them for sharing the Comedy King to the nation.

"Maraming salamat, Tito Dolphy, at kulang ang forever para magpasalamat kaming lahat sa ngiti  at tuwang ibinigay mo sa aming lahat. Nakikiramay po ako at ang buong  'Sarah G  Live' sa pamilya, kaibigan at mahal sa buhay ng nag-iisang King of Comedy Dolphy," Geronimo said.

On Sunday, Dolphy was finally laid to rest at The Heritage Park in Taguig. He passed away on July 10, years after battling pneumonia and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
