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.

For his recent 10th anniversary concert, “inTENse,” at the Philippine International Convention Center’s Plenary Hall, Erik Santos tried something he wouldn’t normally do—dance. As he moved, if awkwardly, to disco tunes and such novelty songs as “Macarena” and “Whoops Kirri,” it was clear that Erik was enjoying himself, soaking in the moment.
After a performance of Ne-Yo’s “Let Me Love You” and Usher’s “Scream,” Erik told his well-heeled audience, in Filipino, “That simple dance took me half a month to perfect!”
It was refreshing to watch Erik do those upbeat numbers, but it was still those powerful, slow-burning ballads that left the crowd clamoring for more. The 31-year-old artist was especially impressive in a string of classic Filipino love songs used as themes in ABS-CBN teleseryes.

Tinuldukan na ni Erik Santos na walang balikang mangyayari sa kanila ni Rufa mae Quinto dahil may dini-date siyang non-showbiz girl ngayon.
Ito ang sinabi sa amin ng Prince of Pop ng makasalubong namin sa Edsa Shangri-La Hotel kamakailan. Tinukso kasi namin siya kay Rufa Mae dahil sweet pa rin silang mag-usap sa nakaraang “InTENse: A Decade with the Prince of Pop” concert na ginanap sa PICC kamakailan.

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.

IN THE LOCAL music business where everybody can seem to just come up to the microphone and sing, Erik Santos knows very well that fame is fleeting and fans can be fickle.
That is why when asked what was his greatest accomplishment is as he marks his 10th anniversary in the business, the 31-year old vocalist from Malabon was quick to say: “I think lasting for 10 years in the business is my biggest achievement.
“I saw some singers who started at about the same time as I did, but who are unfortunately not as active in the industry now as before. That makes me more aware that I have to be thankful that I got to this point of my career,” he added in Filipino.
To celebrate the milestone, Mr. Santos will have a one-night concert at the PICC Plenary Hall in Pasay City on Saturday.
