Day by Day in stride

Last year, Erik celebrated his anniversary in showbiz by staging MilEStones. At the concert, Erik read a letter to his parents. At that time, the singer was celebrating his birthday.

Napakasakit, napakahirap pero ngayon gabi, alam ko na kapiling ko kayong dalawa. Sana nakikita niyo gaano karami yung mga tao nagmamahal, nakiki-celebrate sa akin ngayon,” the singer read.

He also vowed to make his parents proud even if they were no longer with him. Erik’s dad died months before the concert of cancer.

“Nay and Tay, I promise to take care of myself and continue to be strong for our family. I promise to continue your legacy of love, humility, and gratitude. Kung ano po ako ngayon, dahil iyon sa inyong dalawa,” he said.

Erik Santos made his mark in the Philippine industry as the first Grand Champion of the ABS-CBN singing competition Star in a Million Season 1 in 2003. He also has the moniker “King of Pinoy Teleserye Theme Songs.”
