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.

Dubbed the King and Queen of Theme Songs, Angeline Quinto and Erik Santos are gossip fodder anew with wags alleging they’re in a relationship.
That the two were being seen together constantly only added fuel to the fire.
The real score? Nothing much, really. Apparently, they’re just friends. Or something.
“Alam ko halos lahat ganu’n ang sinasabi pero kasi sa amin wala naman po talaga kaming aaminin. Kung sakali man maging kami, hindi naman namin itatago ’yun,” Angeline said.
Erik, on his part, added, “Kasi ang hirap bigyan ng label kung ano ’yung meron kami eh. Pero sabi ko nga, kung hindi talaga kami, hindi. Kasi hindi naman talaga eh. Ayaw naman namin i-mislead ’yung mga tao na hindi naman talaga kami tapos sasabihin namin kami.”

Prince 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.

IN THE LOCAL music business where everybody can seem to just come up to the microphone and sing, Erik Santos knows very well that fame is fleeting and fans can be fickle.
That is why when asked what was his greatest accomplishment is as he marks his 10th anniversary in the business, the 31-year old vocalist from Malabon was quick to say: “I think lasting for 10 years in the business is my biggest achievement.
“I saw some singers who started at about the same time as I did, but who are unfortunately not as active in the industry now as before. That makes me more aware that I have to be thankful that I got to this point of my career,” he added in Filipino.
To celebrate the milestone, Mr. Santos will have a one-night concert at the PICC Plenary Hall in Pasay City on Saturday.
