Award-winning singer, platinum-selling albums, sold out concerts and number one songs. This year, Erik Santos is celebrating his 10th year in the business with the release of "The Erik Santos Collection," a 30-song compilation of his well-loved hits for the past 10 years.
"Sobrang thankful at grateful po ako siyempre kay Lord at sa lahat ng mga tao na tumulong po talaga sa akin along the way," Erik said during his album launch Saturday night.
The album includes the most recognizable theme songs from our favorite Filipino teleseryes and movies like, to name a few, "Ikaw" (Ina Kapatid Anak), "It Might Be You," "Now That I Have You," "Maging Sino Ka Man," "Miss You Like Crazy," "May Bukas Pa," all from the same titles, and of course, who will forget "I'll Never Go" from the Popoy and Basha movie "One More Chance."
We asked Erik on how he will summarize the past 10 years in one word, he said:
"Love. Kasi I really love what I'm doing. Ito talaga yung passion ko, yung pagkanta. Siguro kahit sobrang maputi na lahat ng buhok ko, kakanta pa rin ako. As long as nandiyan sila, patuloy akong aawit."
As for the next years, Erik said he wants to be iconic. "Sana maging iconic din ako like sina Sir Basil, Gary V., Martin Nievera, siyempre gusto kong makarating sa estado na yun that's why I'm really doing my best para maging katulad din po nila," he said.
