Erik nagsimula na sa pagti-teacher
Nagsimula na noong Linggo si Erik Santos sa kanyang duty bilang kauna-unahang celebrity mentor ng Center For Pop Music Philippines.
“It’s one way of giving back kung ano ’yung na-experience ko throughout my eight years sa industriya. Para akong mentor, parang sort of mentoring young people para matutong kumanta. Siyempre kung paano gawin ’yung mga tamang bagay para maabot ’yung kanilang mga pangarap,” pahayag ni Erik.
Produkto rin ng nasabing music school si Erik kaya masaya siyang maibahagi sa mga participants ang kanyang mga kaalaman at karanasan bilang isang magaling na singer.
“Mas ibibigay ko sa kanila ’yung sarili ko, kung paano ako sumali ng contest, kung saan ako nagsimula, kung bakit ako nakapasok sa Center For Pop. Kumbaga sumali ako sa isang singing contest sa school then ang prize ay ’yung scholarship sa Center For Pop then doon na nagsimula lahat. I joined Star in a Million, and doon naman sa almost eight years ng singing career ay hindi naman ako binitawan at nakalimutan ng Center For Pop. Talagang nandiyan sila to support,” kuwento pa ng Pop Prince.
“Masaya ako dahil magagawa ko na ’yung isa sa mga gustung-gusto kong gawin and that is to share whatever kung anuman ’yung alam ko when it comes to singing and siyempre sa experience ko na rin. Excited po talaga ako na gawin ito,” diin pa ng singer. — Reports from JAMES C. CANTOS

MANILA, Philippines – Miss Universe 2011 third runner-up Shamcey Supsup showed a lighter side of herself as she talked about her showbiz crushes—Erik Santos and Jericho Rosales—in her guest appearance on “Gandang Gabi Vice” last Oct. 9.
The GenSan beauty said she’s had a crush on Erik when she was in college at the University of the Philippines-Diliman, where she graduated magna cum laude in Architecture.
“Sobrang gustung-gusto ko siyang kumanta. Parang idol, ganon,” said she.
Although she said she’s not the “fanatic type [na] ‘yung talagang sinusundan ko lahat ng shows,” Shamcey apparently had her fan girl moment of sorts with Erik.
“There was this poster of him sa may building sa UP tapos kinuha ko ‘yung poster niya. Sa Palma Hall [‘yun]—‘yung mga general education subjects dun ginagawa—nasa hallway siya [poster],” she recalled.
Asked if she had seen him in person, Shamcey answered in the affirmative.
