As Erik comes up the stage his colleagues can’t help but show their appreciation for the “Star In A Million” champion.
“Before the ceremony, we were instructed not to clap,” the singer recalled. “Pero ’di nakapagpigil ang lahat, they clapped hard for me. I guess my schoolmates saw that in spite of my busy schedule, I still managed to graduate. I think, in a way, I inspired them with my story,” he said.
Despite his busy schedule, the pop icon still managed to find balance between his singing career and schooling. Erik Santos believes that the showbiz stardom and lime light will definitely fade but the dignity of having a college degree is something that nobody can take away.
Erik is now an icon worthy of emulation by his peers and by the youth in general. He is a living proof that dreams do really come true. Far more than his jam-packed performances and thousands of albums consumed, Erik has considered education as the foundation of his career.
Equipped with nice demeanor, extraordinary voice, heartthrob looks and intelligence, Erik Santos deserves to be addressed as a man of substance. Long live the Prince of Pop!
