Erik Santos on that unforgettable 'One More Chance' song 'I'll Never Go'
MANILA, Philippines – Fans were treated to a lovely surprise Monday, August as the teaser for the One More Chance sequel finally hit YouTube.
According to the clip, Popoy and Basha are now married – but things aren't all rosy, as they're seen getting into a very intense argument.
But the shouting gives way to a tender moment as Popoy and Basha hold each other after their fight. The clip ends there – but not without a snippet of the now iconic One More Chance theme song "I'll Never Go," sung by crooner Erik Santos.
Eight years after the song appeared on the 2007 film's soundtrack, Erik says he's never forgotten that song and what it did to further boost his career.
"S'yempre because of that song nagkaroon ako ng hit song. Kapag nagkaroon ka ng hit songs, marami kang shows," he told Rappler at the sidelines of the press conference for his August 15 concert with Angeline Quinto on Thursay, August 13.
(Of course, because of that song, I got a hit. When you have a hit, you get more shows.)
Jokingly, he said: "Pag marami kang shows, ibig sabihin marami kang pera! Pag marami kang pera, ibig sabihin, mabibili mo ang gusto mo." (If you have more shows, you earn more and you can buy what you want.)
But turning serious once more, he said that the success of the song did have a domino effect on his career. Erik won the Star In A Million competition in early 2004 and has since enjoyed a growing career in showbiz, known for his powerful vocals and tender, smooth delivery.
At the time of the press conference, the One More Chance sequel had not yet been announced, but here's what Erik had to say about whether he'd like to sing again for the film's sequel:
"I should be the one to sing the theme song of the ano, ‘di ba? I think ha, I think. Sana, sana!" (I should be the one to sing the theme song [of the film], right? I think! Let's hope!)
Let's take a walk down memory lane and listen to the song below:
