SM Supermalls takes pride in bringing the Christmas spirit across the country with a festive array of holiday decors and music with the country’s one and only Prince of Pop Erik Santos. Known to have always exceeded expectations in seasonal activities, SM has come up with the perfect song to accompany the sharing spirit often rooted in the gifts bought at SM Supermalls. Together with Erik Santos, SM wishes everyone a Merry Christmas with its official holiday theme song, “The ChriSMs Bop!” The Christmas ChriSMs Bop” combines beats and harmonies perfect to accompany the shoppers as they go through their Christmas lists. As a special treat, Erik Santos also made his own version of the song which is included in his new album, All I Want This Christmas.
There is no other artist that perfectly fits this kind of Christmas cheer that SM Supermalls aims to bring. Over the years, Erik has become an icon in Christmas traditions and new celebrations. In the past, he has released Christmas albums and he even put up a thanksgiving concert, entitled Paskong Pasasalamat ni Erik Santos.
Erik’s All I Want for Christmas is a collection of classic holiday harmonies with original creations to bring forth the Christmas spirit into any room. He also goes beyond borders with this album by incorporating an out of the box calendar design packaging for it by releasing not one, but two singles from the album, at the same time. His version of Happy Christmas is the first single off the album and the second single to be released simultaneously is the Christmas classic, Sana Ngayong Pasko. Erik’s rendition of the song is dubbed as one of the most heartfelt versions of this classic Christmas hit.
Along with the album’s Christmas favorites, The First Noel, Silent Night, Christmas Is, and many more, All I Want for Christmas is the perfect soundtrack for every holiday story, where the gift of song inspires love, tradition, breakthroughs and faith in the real lesson behind the Christmas celebration.
Erik’s new album, All I Want for Christmas, is now available in all major record bars nationwide for the best deal at P299.00 only. The album and Erik’s forthcoming Christmas mall tour is brought to you by SM Supermalls, Star Records, Eivissa Superclub, Backroom Talent Management and SM Malls.
