I saw a star in the fledgling, bright-eyed Erik Santos even before he joined ABS-CBN’s Star in a Million in 2004. There is no doubt that his destiny is written in the stars. Today, Erik is a certified star and the country’s Prince of Pop.
He is a brave young man equipped with an unflappable determination to make it big in the industry. Hindi siya takot mag-eksperimento sa kanyang career para bigyan ng ibang putahe ang mapang-uring panlasa ng publiko. He recently showcased his acting mettle sa isang special episode ng Maalaala Mo Kaya (MMK) kung saan siya umani ng mga papuri dahil sa kanyang magaling na pagganap bilang isang OFW sa Macau.
In my many years in showbiz, I have met and interviewed all sorts of people. Ang bawat mukha ay may iba’t ibang kuwento. Some come and go while others stay. Pero may mga artista naman na hindi ko man kadugo pero kung ituring ko ay higit pa sa isang kaibigan. Isa na rito si Erik.
Erik has grit, hunger and passion kaya naman he remains on top of his game. Muli niya itong patutunayan sa kanyang two-night concert na pinamagatang “Power of One” sa September 24 at 25, 7:30pm, sa Meralco Theater. His special guests for both nights will be no less than Asia’s Songbird, Regine Velasquez and the world renowned UP Singing Ambassadors. On September 24, the country’s premier balladeer, Martin Nievera and singing champion Rachel Anne Go will guest in the show while the ultimate Heartthrob, Piolo Pascual, will perform on the 25th.
The concert is directed by GB Sampedro and written by Senedy Que with Homer Flores as musical director.
The “Power of One” is presented by Core Events Production and VTRANN in cooperation with La Carmela de Boracay Resort Hotel.
