While Erik Santos and Angeline Quinto consider each other “special,” the two singers insisted that they’re not yet a couple, saying that they would rather take things slow for now.

“We know what we have and are very comfortable with each other’s company. I’m not in a rush and I don’t want to preempt anything,” Angeline said during a press conference for her and Erik’s concert titled “KQ at the Araneta Coliseum” on Aug. 15.

kq artikTwo of this generation’s highly recognized and established singers come as one in a dream concert that promises to deliver the goods.

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.

Hindi maiwasang hingan ng opinyon sina Erik Santos at Angeline Quinto kaugnay ng isyu tungkol sa non-singers na nagli-lip sync kapag nagpe-perform sa musical-variety shows sa telebisyon.

Sina Erik at Angeline ang dalawa sa itinuturing na pinakamahusay na singers sa Pilipinas.

Nag-ugat ang isyung ito sa pahayag ni Rhap Salazar, dating kampeon ng 13th World Championships of Performing Arts (WCOPA), hinggil sa non-singers na nagli-lip sync at nagkakaroon pa ng record albums.

s6_0540In the Philippines, wives are always seen as the victims of separation. For filmmaker GB Sampedro, the time has come for Filipinos to understand that husbands too suffer in failed marriages.

To prove his point, Sampedro compiled a story of “six men with six failed marriages” into a single film fittingly titled Separados. The movie is an official entry to the New Breed Category of the 10th Cinemalaya Independent Film Festival opening today at the Cultural Center of the Philippines, Pasay City.

“Dito kasi, kapag separation, lalaki ang may kasalanan, ang babae yong kawawa. With my movie, I want to show the other side of the story,” Sampedro, who is a bona fide “separado” himself, told The Manila Times in an exclusive interview.

erik_santos_s6_0541Asked if the story is in some ways personal, the director admitted, “Yes, it is very personal and close to me. Masasabi kong, majority ng emosyon dito galing sa akin. Most of the characters galing din sa akin.”

But why did it take him years to actually make this movie? Sampedro answered, “That time, feeling ko hindi pa siya buong-buo para sa akin. Hindi pa ako sold sa idea na ipapalabas ko yong ganitong klaseng istorya sa point of view ng lalaki. Hindi pa handa yung market para sa ganon.”

But now times are changing with more and more Filipinos dealing with marital issues.

Erik-SantosEXCITED PERO kinakabahan si Erik Santos dahil aarte siya sa big screen sa kauna-unahang pagkakataon sa pelikulang Separados. Kasama sina Jason Abalos, Anjo Yllana, Alfred Vargas, Victor Neri, at Ricky Davao, ayon kay Erik ay matagal nang naibigay sa kanila ang script, maganda ang materyal at isa itong Cinemalaya entry kaya tinanggap nila.

Nagbiro pa nga sa amin na kaysa paartehin siya, mas mabuti pang pakantahin na lang siya, ‘di naman itinago sa amin ng singer na grabe siyang kabado pero pinagkakatiwala na lang niya sa kanilang direktor na si Direk GB Sampedro ang lahat.

Isang battered husband ang role niya rito, may mga twist na magkukunek-kunek ang buhay ng bawat karakter sa istorya. Sinubukan na rin naman ang acting sa ilang Maalaala Mo Kaya episodes, sa kabila ng papasukin na rin ang acting, aminado naman ang singer na ang pagkanta pa rin ang kanyang first love.

Tinuldukan na ni Erik Santos na walang balikang mangyayari sa kanila ni Rufa mae Quinto dahil may dini-date siyang non-showbiz girl ngayon.

Ito ang sinabi sa amin ng Prince of Pop ng makasalubong namin sa Edsa Shangri-La Hotel kamakailan. Tinukso kasi namin siya kay Rufa Mae dahil sweet pa rin silang mag-usap sa nakaraang “InTENse: A Decade with the Prince of Pop” concert na ginanap sa PICC kamakailan.

111613-erik_main.jpgPrince of Pop Erik Santos held a concert at the PICC Plenary Hall last Saturday, November 9, for his one-night-only 10th anniversary concert. Titled InTENse, the concert showcased the same intense passion and hunger for innovation that Erik has and continues to thrive on in his decade-long presence in the business.
Setting the mood that night was the shadow dance performance of El Gamma Penumbra who opened the show with a dreamy flashback of his humble beginnings as a budding singer stumbling from one local fiesta singing contest and audition to another.
Erik performed his lengthiest concert to date—spanning almost three-and-a-half hours—for his fans.
While he is known for his ballads made into teleserye theme songs, Erik made sure that there was something for all types of listeners as he did mash ups and covers of international pop songs like Nicki Minaj’s “Fly” and R. Kelly’s “I Believe I Can Fly” and Christina Perri’s “A Thousand Years” and Britney Spears’s “Oops I Did It Again” and then a bunch of songs from internationally-acclaimed Broadway musical Les Miserables, which he said was one of his personal favorites.

Erik Santos will celebrate 10 years in the industry with a major solo concert, InTENse: A Decade with the Prince of Pop, on Nov. 9 at the PICC

When I look back, it seems like only yesterday when Erik Santos was starting out on his journey to make a name for himself as a singer — and now, here he is, marking his 10th year in the business.

It’s been an incredible 10-year ride, and sometimes even Erik himself can’t believe that it has gotten this far. “Because at first, after I won (in Star in a Million, where he was the first grand champion), of course, I didn’t know then that it was only the beginning,” says Erik. “Akala ko, after I won, makakabalik na ako ng school, at mapagpapatuloy ko na ‘yung pag-aaral ko. Yun pala, ‘yun ang simula ng lahat, after you win. That’s where the battle and the hard work begin.”
