Dubbed the King and Queen of Theme Songs, Angeline Quinto and Erik Santos are gossip fodder anew with wags alleging they’re in a relationship.

mb artikThat the two were being seen together constantly only added fuel to the fire.

The real score? Nothing much, really. Apparently, they’re just friends. Or something.

“Alam ko halos lahat ganu’n ang sinasabi pero kasi sa amin wala naman po talaga kaming aaminin. Kung sakali man maging kami, hindi naman namin itatago ’yun,” Angeline said.

Erik, on his part, added, “Kasi ang hirap bigyan ng label kung ano ’yung meron kami eh. Pero sabi ko nga, kung hindi talaga kami, hindi. Kasi hindi naman talaga eh. Ayaw naman namin i-mislead ’yung mga tao na hindi naman talaga kami tapos sasabihin namin kami.”

kq artikTwo of this generation’s highly recognized and established singers come as one in a dream concert that promises to deliver the goods.

Erik Santos and Angeline-Quinto, their shining stars intertwined by virtue of their stellar record as familiar voices to local movie and teleserye theme songs, are joining hands as featured acts in an anticipated major concert on Aug. 15 at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.

The show, produced by Cornerstone Concerts and simply billed Erik Santos and Angeline Quinto at the Araneta Coliseum is expected to provide a kind of stage spectacle rarely seen by concertgoers. It is also far from being just a simple set but promises to be grand for its “talked about concept” – three concerts, two musical royalties, one night.

Both Erik and Angeline are crowned as this generation’s “King and Queen of Theme Songs,” respectively, with Erik having sung 37 themes to his high-valued name while Angeline scoring 35 so far in her steadily moving music career for teleseryes and films. The numbers are mind-boggling, the effect to music fans, encompassing.

Sobrang nabiyayaan daw ang singer na si Erik Santos dahil sa pagkakataong kumanta sa Holy Mass ni Pope Francis para sa milyun-milyong Pinoy sa Quirino Grandstand, sa Luneta, Manila, noong Linggo, January 18.

Saad niya, “Sobra akong blessed, ramdam ko talaga yun.

“God’s favor sa akin yung nangyari.

“Nakita ko nang malapitan si Pope, iba yung feeling, ang holy-holy talaga niya.

Papal mass, a career highlight for Erik Santos

Papal mass, a career highlight for Erik Santos

MANILA – Kapamilya singer Erik Santos considers his part in Pope Francis’ mass at Luneta Park, which was attended by some 6 million people on Sunday, as the highlight of his decade-long career.

Santos, who rose to fame after winning an ABS-CBN singing competition in 2003, was tapped to sing the responsorial psalm in the concluding mass of the pontiff’s five-day apostolic visit to the Philippines.

The 31-year-old balladeer was accompanied by 1,000 choir members from various dioceses and a 200-member orchestra as he sang Psalm 97.

On Monday, Santos opened the ABS-CBN noontime variety program “It’s Showtime” with a rendition of the devotional song “I Offer My Life,” drawing cheers from the audience.

After his performance, Santos was asked by co-hosts of “It’s Showtime” about his experience singing in the presence of Pope Francis, who left for the Vatican on Monday morning.

“Sobrang overwhelming ‘yung feeling,” Santos said. “I feel so blessed. Blessing po talaga na makakanta po ako sa papal mass kahapon.”

When co-host Vice Ganda surmised that Santos must have considered one of the highlights of his career, the singer replied definitively. “Iyon ang pinaka-highlight! Siyempre, I sang for the Lord, for the Pope and for the people talaga.”

Aside from Santos, Kapamilya talents who performed at papal events include Jamie Rivera, Darren Espanto, Lyca Gairanod, Jed Madela and Angeline Quinto.

s6_0540In the Philippines, wives are always seen as the victims of separation. For filmmaker GB Sampedro, the time has come for Filipinos to understand that husbands too suffer in failed marriages.

To prove his point, Sampedro compiled a story of “six men with six failed marriages” into a single film fittingly titled Separados. The movie is an official entry to the New Breed Category of the 10th Cinemalaya Independent Film Festival opening today at the Cultural Center of the Philippines, Pasay City.

“Dito kasi, kapag separation, lalaki ang may kasalanan, ang babae yong kawawa. With my movie, I want to show the other side of the story,” Sampedro, who is a bona fide “separado” himself, told The Manila Times in an exclusive interview.

erik_santos_s6_0541Asked if the story is in some ways personal, the director admitted, “Yes, it is very personal and close to me. Masasabi kong, majority ng emosyon dito galing sa akin. Most of the characters galing din sa akin.”

But why did it take him years to actually make this movie? Sampedro answered, “That time, feeling ko hindi pa siya buong-buo para sa akin. Hindi pa ako sold sa idea na ipapalabas ko yong ganitong klaseng istorya sa point of view ng lalaki. Hindi pa handa yung market para sa ganon.”

But now times are changing with more and more Filipinos dealing with marital issues.

Ayon sa dating Star In A Million grand champion, isang malaking hamon para sa kanya ang makabilang sa kanyang kauna-unahang pelikula, ang Separados.

Kuwento ni Erik sa PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal), “Kasi maganda yung material and it’s a Cinemalaya entry, so interesting.

Separados—anim kami dito at isa akong battered husband.
