MANILA – The all-male group Tres Kantos was named the first winner of the celebrity competition “We Love OPM” during the show’s live finale at Resorts World Manila on Sunday.

Mentored by Erik Santos, the trio of Bugoy Drilon, Jovit Baldivino, and former “Tawag ng Tanghalan” contestant Dominador Aviola garnered 80.45 percent of combined scores with their performance of Ryan Cayabyab’s “Nais Ko.”

The group took home P2 million, half of which they will donate to their chosen beneficiary, Casa San Miguel.

Aviola, whose “Tawag ng Tanghalan” was cut short, couldn’t help but become emotional with the win. “Hindi ko ma-explain. Lord, salamat Lord. Salamat,” he said.

The group won at least three times throughout the competition.

The other grand finalists, O Divas, composed of Emmanuelle Vera, Liezel Garcia and Klarisse de Guzman and mentored by KZ Tandingan; and Oh My Girls, composed of young singers Ylona Garcia, Krissha Viaje and Alexa Ilacad and mentored by Yeng Constantino, got 57.78 percent and 58.27 percent of votes, respectively.

“Siyempre dream ng bawat singer ‘yung maging international, ‘yung magkaroon ng international album, makilala ang music mo sa ibang bansa. For me, ‘yun ang ultimate dream ko,” Santos said in an interview on “Umagang Kay Ganda” on Thursday.

“Pero ang mas ultimate pa doon ay ‘yung ma-sustain ko ang career ko for 10 years more or 20 years more,” added Santos, who is celebrating his 10th anniversary in show business in November.

Powerful ballads, remarkable originals, strong vocals, heartfelt renditions and a true Pop icon, Erik Santos has smoothly taken us on a journey through a decade of good music and by remaining as one of the industry’s most conspicuous artists and celebrated OPM phenomenon.



Erik  sings “I’d Really Love to See You Tonight” on the fourth part of our Erik Santos in Concert series, a lookback at a decade of concerts by the Prince of Pop. He sang this England Dan & John Ford Coley hit during the ESFO-produced Birthday concert “Still” in 2006. Enjoy and don’t forget to get your tickets for one inTENse night at the PICC on November 9!



 It is almost unbelievable that a whole decade has passed from when Sarah Geronimo was just a timid contestant in Star for a Night and Erik Santos was fighting as a wildcard entry in Star in a Million. Ten years forward and now they are headlining their own 10th Anniversary concerts.

ERIK SANTOS Celebrates A Decade In The Music Industry!

ERIK SANTOS Celebrates A Decade In The Music Industry!
The Prince of Pop and King of Teleserye Theme Songs has released his 10th anniversary album, “The Erik Santos Collection.”

Award-winning singer, platinum-selling albums, sold out concerts and number one songs. This year, Erik Santos is celebrating his 10th year in the business with the release of “The Erik Santos Collection,” a 30-song compilation of his well-loved hits for the past 10 years.

“Sobrang thankful at grateful po ako siyempre kay Lord at sa lahat ng mga tao na tumulong po talaga sa akin along the way,” Erik said during his album launch Saturday night.

The album includes the most recognizable theme songs from our favorite Filipino teleseryes and movies like, to name a few, “Ikaw” (Ina Kapatid Anak), “It Might Be You,” “Now That I Have You,” “Maging Sino Ka Man,” “Miss You Like Crazy,” “May Bukas Pa,” all from the same titles, and of course, who will forget “I’ll Never Go” from the Popoy and Basha movie “One More Chance.”

We asked Erik on how he will summarize the past 10 years in one word, he said:

“Love. Kasi I really love what I’m doing. Ito talaga yung passion ko, yung pagkanta. Siguro kahit sobrang maputi na lahat ng buhok ko, kakanta pa rin ako. As long as nandiyan sila, patuloy akong aawit.”

As for the next years, Erik said he wants to be iconic. “Sana maging iconic din ako like sina Sir Basil, Gary V., Martin Nievera, siyempre gusto kong makarating sa estado na yun that’s why I’m really doing my best para maging katulad din po nila,” he said.

To celebrate his 10 years in the business, aside from his album, Erik will also be staging a concert in the last quarter of this year so make sure not to miss that!

“The Erik Santos Collection” under Star Records is now available at all leading record bars nationwide.

Erik Santos plays Roque in this heart-wrenching story of a man’s undying love to Merlinda (Charee Pineda) even after she marries his brother Raul (Arron Villaflor), raises a family, and dies of childbirth. This “Maalaala Mo Kaya” year-opener-special was shot in Tanay, under the direction of Mae Cruz. This is not the first time that Direk Mae and Erik have worked together, and from the raving positive feedback, we will not be surprised if it won’t be the last.
