Prince of Pop Erik Santos on what finally convinced him to try his hand at acting via indie film Separados: “Siyempre naman, it’s my first time to do a movie tapos indie pa, tapos Cinemalaya pa. Ang daming mga critics talaga na manonood. In-offer kasi nila sa akin ito matagal na. Direk GB is a friend so why not, ‘di ba?”

Si Erik Santos ang pinakabagong dagdag sa hanay ng singers na sumabak na rin sa larangan ng pag-arte.
Ayon sa dating Star In A Million grand champion, isang malaking hamon para sa kanya ang makabilang sa kanyang kauna-unahang pelikula, ang Separados.
Kuwento ni Erik sa PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal), “Kasi maganda yung material and it’s a Cinemalaya entry, so interesting.
“Separados—anim kami dito at isa akong battered husband.
EXCITED 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.

The missing link in Erik Santos’ life
By Karen Valeza | Yahoo Southeast Asia Newsroom
Balladeer Erik Santos feels good about how his career is going. But he thinks he’s missing out on something important — a family of his own.
“Siguro, in the next three to five years, I have to establish my own family na rin. Kasi, kailangan din yun di ba? Yung maka-build ka ng sarili mong pamilya. I’m looking forward to that,” Erik told the press at the pictorial for his 10th anniversary concert “InTENse” on –edited– Saturday, November 9.
To this day, I have never experienced anything remotely close to that TV magic I felt while watching Erik Santos sing “This is the Moment” in the Star in a Million grand finals. I doubt it will ever be surpassed. His competitors all had great voices, sure, but when he sang on that Saturday night of January 2004 it sounded like his voice was borne out of a serious hunger to prove himself and wrapped in so much passion that you believed him when he said he will “never reckon second best.”

Bumuhos ang mga tagasuporta ni Erik Santos sa Eastwood!
NANINIWALA na kami na pagdating nga sa titulo niyang Prince of Pop, talagang hindi matatawaran ang mga tagasuporta ni Erik Santos!
Pinuntahan namin ang album launch niya under Star Records sa Central Plaza ng Eastwood noong Sabado ng gabi. Bumagsak ang saksakan ng lakas na ulan na nagpabaha roon mismo sa lalakaran mo sa loob ng Eastwood. Pero nang dumating kami sa venue, punumpuno na ito ng mga nagsibili ng The Erik Santos Collection: Timless Movie and TV Theme Songs na pinirmahan niya after ng kanyang show.
Nagse-celebrate si Erik ng ika-10 taon niya sa showbiz. Kaya natutuwa siya dahil ni hindi nga raw niya namalayang naka-10 taon na pala siya at ang mga tagasuporta niya eh, hindi nangangawala.
The Erik Santos Collection Album Launch
Last weekend was a full-on Erik Santos experience as the Prince of Pop unveiled his latest offering – “The Erik Santos Collection: Timeless Movie & TV Themesongs.” Erik Santos Friends Online (ESFO) showed their unwavering support both on Saturday at Eastwood City Walk and Sunday at Venice Piazza Mckinley Hill. The newly-crowned King of Teleserye Themesongs gave a mini-concert that showcased many of the songs on the 2-CD album, a compendium of the themesongs Erik Santos has recorded that span his 10 years in the industry. Erik shared some backstories of the themesongs that he then sang with his signature heartfelt rendition. Erik’s performance garnered a very warm reception from the audience, who gave him standing ovations on both nights. Despite the unfavorable weather conditions, the audience who bought the CD stayed for the whole performance and lined up for the CD-signing after the show. Enjoy the photos below & the sneak peek video above and see you all on July 5, 5pm at Lucky Chinatown!
