Erik Santos

Back to list of Cornerstone artists


Erik Santos was ABS-CBN’s Star In A Million Grand Champion last January 2004. A young balladeer known for his soulful voice, Erik made his way to stardom through the music scene owing the title “PRINCE OF POP”. His much-awaited debut album aptly titled "This Is The Moment"shows that Erik’s moment has indeed come.

His passion for music started during his childhood years. He participated in various singing competitions.

His Platinum debut album and succeeding albums, sold-out concerts and a demand for corporate shows, accolades from Awit Awards, Star Awards and Aliw Awards, endorsements for a bank (Bank of the Philippine Island's Express Remit), theme songs for radio stations, and even movies earned him an unusual popularity.

His first single, Pagbigyang Muli, remained number one of WRR’s hit chart for more than 20 weeks together with his other songs filling up the chart simultaneously.

Amidst all these, Erik still remains charming and this "realness" becomes one of the biggest factors why Erik has won audiences nationwide.
