OPM master Homer Flores was the musical director.
Erik gathered his supporters to personally thank them and humbly look back at all of his achievements via three-hour jam-packed concert. Prior to his numerous chart-toppers, Erik was of course expected to deliver his teleserye and movie heartfelt tracks like “Maging Sino Ka Man,” “May Bukas Pa,” “Diyos Ng Pag-ibig,” and “Muling Buksan Ang Puso.” Erik also performed “I Miss You Like Crazy,” “Now That I Have You,” and “I’ll Never Go” (from the movie One More Chance), themes from John Lloyd and Bea’s certified blockbuster films.

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.

Erik Santos to mark 10 years in music industry
MANILA, Philippines – Being able to stay in show business for almost 10 years is something which singer Erik Santos considers an achievement.
Santos, who will be celebrating his 10th anniversary in the music industry next year, said he feels fortunate that people still patronize his music even though many new artists have joined the music scene.
Singer Erik Santos
“Nakaabot ako ng 10 years na andito pa rin ako. Iba ‘yun eh. Pag nakilala ka ng tao, ang hirap i-sustain, lalo dito sa atin, iba ang sistema ng showbiz. Kaya sabi ko ‘pag nag-usap kami ni Christian (Bautista) napaka-grateful namin na nakasampa kami sa music industry at ‘pag naglabas kami ng album, tinatangkilik ng tao at ‘pag nag-concert kami, pinupuntahan ng mga tao,” he said.
Santos also gave credit to the ABS-CBN management for handling his career well.

MANILA, Philippines – While most of his contemporaries have already crossed over to acting, singer Erik Santos opts to stick it out with his first love, singing.
While the 29-year-old singer is fully aware that acting on teleseryes does assure one of wider exposure, acting isn’t really his cup of tea.
