ERIK SANTOS On The "Greatest Moments" Of His Career
Karen Jane Ng
This is a special moment for Erik Santos as the Prince of Pop reached his 15th year in the music industry. Yep, it's been 15 years since we first heard him sing on Star In A Million!
He knows not many artists get to enjoy this kind of longevity and Erik is grateful for being among the very few lucky ones. "Siyempre masayang-masaya ko and I'm very grateful sa lahat ng mga taong naging parte ng 15 years ko in the business," he told MYX.
A lot of great things have happened throughout his career - 12 albums, numerous collaborations, concerts here and abroad - so it feels just right for Erik to celebrate. However, the "Pagbigyang Muli" singer admitted that he also once hit rock bottom in the midst of it all.
"Yung parang hindi ko alam san ako tutungo," Erik shared. "Pero ako kasi yung klase ng tao na 'never give up'. 'Di ako basta gumi-give up. Minsan nasusurprise na lang ako sa mga fresh, brand new opportunities na dumarating. Minsan yung mga bagay na hindi mo ineexpect, dumadating siya e. Maraming mga surprises si Lord."
So what's the secret to the premier balladeer's successful career? Watch our MYXclusive interview below to know:
Erik will be marking his 15th anniversary with a concert My Greatest Moments on September 22 at the Mall of Asia Arena!
