What Happened to Pops Fernandez After She Didn’t Appear in TV for Such a Long Time!
Pops Fernandez used to be called “The Concert Queen” and was able to release a total of eighteen albums under her belt – including a collaboration with Martin Nievera, who was considered her male counterpart.
In fact, Pops got married to him and bore two sons, Robin and Ram. However, it was not an ideal marriage and the couple officially got annulled on 2000, according to Philippine Star. This initially shook the fans because Pops and Martin were known as the ultimate couple back then.
Despite that, Pops continued to perform and sing with Regine Velasquez, Kuh Ledesma, and Zsa Zsa Padilla – all singers who have the same vocal range as hers. Pops didn’t let her failed marriage hinder her from singing.
By 2012, Pops was considered an in-demand artist, along with Martin and Ai-Ai Delas Alas. Pops performed Three’s the Company with them in California, which was a musical love triangle.
Apart from that, Pops also hosted a one-night all-star OPM icons concert ICONS at MOA on June 16 with Jim Paredes.
Pops also hosted the PMPC Star Awards for Music in the same month and was awarded the Natatanging Alagad ng Musika, a special award. Pops received it with some OPM veterans in the industry.
In December 2012, Pops was given the Walk of Fame honor with another singer, Lani Misalucha. This was presented to her by Kuya Germs in Eastwood City.
The Walk of Fame in Eastwood is patterned after Hollywood’s own, where it recognizes the most popular artists in the industry and those who have greatly contributed the most.
In the video that was uploaded by YouTube account ‘Balitang Artista,’ Pops was seen travelling in different countries with her friends and relatives. Although no dates were specified, the video description said that it featured Pops’ life after showbiz.
Pops was last seen in the public in 2013, when she held a Valentine’s Day concert in Mall of Asia called Foursome. Pops performed with well-known singers such as Martin, Ogie Alcasid, and Regine Velasquez.
It could be assumed that Pops travelled to other countries after that year, or the following years after. In Pops’ Instagram account, it could be evident that she is enjoying her downtime with her loved ones.
Here are some of her pictures:
