Erik RamosSantos, (born October 10, 1982 in Malabon, Philippines) is a Filipino singer and the Grand Champion of the ABS-CBN program Star In A Million Season 1 in January 2004. He is dubbed as the 'Prince of Pop'.
Erik's passion for singing started when he was still a kid in Malabon. Erik participated in numerous small-town singing competitions.
Erik became the wildcard entry to the Final 10 of Star in a Million. He had a good start in the contest but got eliminated during the third week of competitions, when it was still a part of the Sunday noontime variety show ASAP. Nevertheless, his second chance came and his rendition of R. Kelly's "I Believe I Can Fly", won him the 10th and final slot for the semi-finals round. Eventually he became one of the three grand finalists in the showdown for the title of Star in a Million. "This is the Moment", a song from the musical Jekyll and Hyde, popularized by Martin Nievera, won him the title.
Now, with record-breaking chart-toppers from his Platinum debut album (his first single Pagbigyang Muli has stayed on the #1 spot of WRR's hit chart for more than 20 weeks, along with his other songs filling up the charts simultaneously), 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, Erik has earned mainstream popularity.
