The power of Erik Santos
Manila Standard Today
by Isah V. Red
Amid intrigues and mostly put-downs, especially from the tabloid press, Erik Santos remains steadfast in his goal to become the country’s prince of pop. And it seems he is actually weathering the anti-Erik barrage of criticisms.
Proof is he has stayed in the business close to a decade, and he hasn’t even peaked yet. Just a couple of steps to the apex of his career, Santos stops momentarily to take a look at how he has become the person that he has always dreamed to be.
Santos’ career has come a long way since Star in a Million. Platinum records, hit songs and multiple music awards are now tucked under his belt, and only in his past seven years in show business. All these accomplishments started with the power of a dream. And when the right time and right opportunity came to Erik the rest was history.
To emphasize that dreams can be powerful, Santos titled his coming show on Sept. 24 and 25 at the Meralco Theater The Power of One.
Santos returns to that time when he wasn’t the Prince of Pop that he is now. He will prove to his audience that it is his music and powerful voice that brought him to where he is today.
The show promises to showcase Erik’s vocal range and his heartfelt renditions of popular love songs.
Santos assembled personalities that had the great influence on him as a singer. Appearing as special guests for both nights will be no less than Regine Velasquez and the world renowned UP Singing Ambassadors. On Sept. 24, the country’s premier balladeer, Martin Nievera and singing champion Rachel Anne Go will join the roster while the ultimate Heartthrob, Piolo Pascual will perform on the 25th.
Erik took the time to pick the songs for the show, most of which will not only challenge him musically but will also tell the story of his life. It will be songs from someone who dared to dream and followed it.
