MUCH-awarded and certified platinum artist, Erik Santos is ready to take on different fields in the entertainment industry, as he becomes part of the prestigious Star Magic family.
Since coming into the spotlight in 2003, the one and only “Prince of Pop” Erik has been singing one hit after the other and then ventured into writing his own songs. In 2010, Erik first dabbled into acting via an episode of “Maalaala Mo Kaya” which was even shot in Macau opposite actress Kristel Moreno. And now in 2011, Erik makes his professional acting debut on stage in Atlantis’ version of the hit Broadway musical “The Little Mermaid,” where he will play the role of Prince Eric opposite Rachelle Ann Go as the mermaid-turned-human Ariel.
Erik is very enthusiastic about his first stage role. “Nag-re-rehearse na kami ngayon. I’m very excited kasi this is my first time to do theater so kumbaga ibang experience naman for me.” Erik is very open to expanding his horizons as a performer. He hopes his followers won’t be disappointed when “The Little Mermaid” begins its run on Nov. 18 to Dec. 11 at the Meralco Theater. There will be a celebrity screening produced by Erik on Nov. 25.
