Popstar: A Dream Come True is the debut album by Filipino singer Sarah Geronimo, released on September 11, 2003, in the Philippines by VIVA Records. It was produced by Vincent del Rosario. After winning the grand champion title on Star for a Night, she signed a recording contract with the label and immediately recorded and released her first album. The album was a collaboration of the most respected composers, namely, Vehnee Saturno, Ogie Alcasid, George Canseco, Wency Cornejo and Jun Murillo. The album includes her winning piece "To Love You More", which was also released as the first single. It was the 2003's best selling album in the Philippines. It is considered as the best-selling debut album in the Philippines selling more than 210,000 units which was certified 7x Platinum in 2006.[1]As of December 2008, the album has sold 296,800 units certifying 9x Platinum by the Philippine Association of the Record Industry.


In 2002, the financial problems of Geronimo's family inspired her to compete in the Star for a Night competition, hosted by Regine Velasquez. At the age of fourteen she won the competition, which included a PHP 1 million cash prize and a managerial contract to Vicente Del Rosario, owner of Viva Entertainment. She was also given the title of "Popstar Princess". Her mother said, "Her cash prize in Star For a Night was a big help. This school year, we don't need to borrow money from other people for my children's tuition fees".


Popstar: A Dream Come True has performed well commercially and critically. On the 2004 Awit Awards, it received four nominations (Best Female, Best New Female, Best Dance for "Sa Iyo" and Song of the Year for "Forever's Not Enough"). She won two of the four categories, namely Best Performance by a New Female Recording Artist and Best Dance Song.
