MANILA, Philippines – Although his love life hasn’t been making headlines, Erik Santos reveals one of his goals is to start a family in the near future.

“Siguro, in the next three to five years, I have to establish my own family na rin,” he said in an interview with Philstar.com and other entertainment press on Monday, September 9.

The 30-year-old singer said he’s been dating lately. Erik adds he prefers to be in a relationship with someone non-showbiz. “Para tahimik,” he explained.

Ang kulang na lang daw sa personal na buhay ngayon ni Erik Santos ay ang pagkakaroon ng sarili niyang pamilya.

“Siguro in the next three to five years, I have to establish my own family na rin, kasi ang hirap ding wala kang [sariling pamilya].

“I mean, kailangan din ‘yon—maka-build ka ng sarili mong pamilya.

“So I’m looking forward to that,” pahayag ng singer sa pictorial ng kanyang upcoming 10thanniversary concert na may titulong InTENse na gaganapin sa PICC Plenary Hall sa November 9.

Singer Erik Santos has been in showbiz for almost 10 years.

Establishing himself as the Prince of Pop, he has numerous hits, multi-platinum record awards, and staged sold-out concerts.

When asked what else he wants to achieve in his career, he quips, “Puwede ko bang i-try maging Martin Nievera?”

Erik’s connection with the Concert King dates back to when he was still a contestant in Star In A Million, where he emerged the Grand Winner.

Erik’s winning song, “This is the Moment” was in Martin’s album, Martin Live at the CCP with the Philippine Philharmonic Orchestra.

He eventually found his niche as one of the most reliable interpreters of themes of Star Cinema movies and ABS-CBN teleseryes.

He recorded songs for projects like Miss You Like Crazy, It Might Be You, Maging Sino Ka Man, May Minamahal, Now That I Have You, Say You’ll Never Go, May Bukas Pa, Lupa, Diyos Ay Pag-ibig, I Will Never Leave You, and the latest Star Cinema movie, Unofficially Yours.

Erik’s hit singles include Pagbigyang Muli, I’ll Never Go, Kung Akin Ang Mundo, My Love Is Here, and his current single, Kulang Ako Kung Wala Ka.

He has staged successful concerts at the Araneta Coliseum.

He has also dabbled in acting (Maalaala Mo Kaya), hosting (Star Power, Star In A Million 2, Search for a Star In A Million), and musical theater (as Prince Eric in The Little Mermaid).

“This year, I am working to establish myself as a concert performer-balladeer like Martin,” says Erik. “I really look up to him and I really want to work on being a concert performer.”

Late last year, he topbilled a three-night, sold-out Music Museum show billed powERIKons, which received favorable reviews.

He admits the show’s success convinced him to focus on concerts.

“I am so far from being a Martin Nievera, but this year, I really want to work hard on becoming a respected concert artist,” he says.

“This [stage] in my career is all about new challenges, risks, and hopefully, new victories.”

The singer, who signed with Erickson Raymundo’s Cornerstone Talent Management Group and Star Magic late last year, is excited about his new projects which include new albums, concerts, and TV shows.

“This year is all about gearing up for my 10th anniversary,” Erik says.

“This is my gift to my fans who have selflessly supported me throughout the years, through ups and downs, victories and heartbreaks. I want to present a new Erik Santos to all of them.”-

The stars’ memorable moments in 2010

DIRECTLINE By Boy Abunda
The Philippine Star
January 03, 2011

t’s January 2011 and we just ushered in a new month and a new year. It is a brand-new beginning for all of us. It will be another long and arduous journey. What lies ahead, we don’t really know. We can only pray and hope for the best.

The month of January was named after the Roman god Janus. In Roman mythology, he is “the god of good beginnings.” He is the doorkeeper of heaven and the god of beginnings and endings. His statue has two faces, one on each side. His figure represents time because his faces can see both the past and the future. Janus symbolizes what happened in the old year while looking forward to the new one.

Just like Janus, the world of showbiz also has two faces: The crying masked face and the laughing one. The masks mirror both the happiness and the melancholia that happen in showbiz and in the lives of its denizens.

I asked some stars about the most memorable things that happened to them in 2010 and what they look forward to in 2011. Read on:

Erik Santos — I have wonderful memories about my career last year. I had A.S.A.P. XV and Star Power where I get the chance to work with Megastar Sharon Cuneta, an acting stint in Maalaala Mo Kaya, and sold-out concerts last February and September which I produced. I am also happy because my family is healthy. I hope this year, I have more projects. I am looking forward to a stage musical that I’m set to do, my US and European tour scheduled on the first quarter of 2011, and the success of my new album.
