Erik Santos and Angeline-Quinto, their shining stars intertwined by virtue of their stellar record as familiar voices to local movie and teleserye theme songs, are joining hands as featured acts in an anticipated major concert on Aug. 15 at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.
The show, produced by Cornerstone Concerts and simply billed Erik Santos and Angeline Quinto at the Araneta Coliseum is expected to provide a kind of stage spectacle rarely seen by concertgoers. It is also far from being just a simple set but promises to be grand for its “talked about concept” – three concerts, two musical royalties, one night.
Both Erik and Angeline are crowned as this generation’s “King and Queen of Theme Songs,” respectively, with Erik having sung 37 themes to his high-valued name while Angeline scoring 35 so far in her steadily moving music career for teleseryes and films. The numbers are mind-boggling, the effect to music fans, encompassing.
The long-plotted concert, under the direction of Johnny Manahan and with Homer Flores as musical director, is expected to be a red-carpet-like affair for impassioned singing both in competent stand-alone sequences and earth- moving duets.
The said “musical royalties” recently came back from a show in Canada where they wowed packed crowds and in some ways, engagingly warmed up for the big night a few weeks from now.
“Maraming salamat Winnipeg! Ang saya saya!,” exclaimed a jubilant Erik.
That’s the mark of an artist – gratuitous and appreciative of audiences wherever he is, readily downplaying the fact that he is the very reason why the venue exploded in cheers and applause.
Same can be said with Angelina who never forgets to acknowledge the great talent she owes from heaven. She said of her upcoming major show with Erik, “This is it guys. See you all on Aug.15 at the Big Dome. Thank You Jesus, all glory to You!”
As if their tandem is not enough, their much-talked about party will have as special guests Concert King Martin Nievera and Asia’s Songbird Regine Velasquez, needless to say their ultimate idols or artists they look up to in their journey to stardom and even after reaching their destination.
While the public often sees both Erik and Angeline performing on TV, especially in ABS-CBN’s ASAP, clamor for a big concert with the two of them continues to reverberate. They have developed a strong working partnership and friendship over the years, ensuring they can still showcase something different and worth watching beyond their regular TV act.
Erik Santos sad Angeline Quinto at the Araneta Coliseum is in cooperation with The Academy Of Rock.
