Fans have witnessed the special, strong friendship of Tawag Ng Tanghalan hurados and OPM icons Angeline Quinto and Erik Santos for years.
Angeline and Erik have been together in countless performances and concerts, and likewise had special memories as genuine friends off stage. They would always share in interviews that they really consider each other special and important, making it unsurprising to see that they have always kept and maintained a strong friendship that seemed unbreakable.
Until now, they perform together on the ASAP Natin 'To stage, and even grace the madlang people with their presence as hurados on It’s Showtime’s Tawag Ng Tanghalan.
Their closeness, however, would make people speculate about the real score, with even close friends thinking they were actually a couple. Vice Ganda would even ask Erik if Angeline was his last ‘girlfriend’, and also ask Angeline if she really fell in love with him. Erik would just answer with funny responses while Angeline would tell Vice to stop teasing her but would not deny the love she feels for Erik.
Another instance was when Angeline expressed how happy she was for one contestant in TNT because Erik was the mentor. Angeline shared that whenever she would have concerts, either here in the country or abroad, Erik would also always be there for her. She added that she has always been proud of him for how he has also guided and trained other artists and performers as well.
Really, Erik and Angeline’s friendship has gone a long way because of all their moments together - may it be good, bad, or even embarrassing, as what Angeline has shared in one her past birthday greeting for Erik.
"Maraming maraming salamat pogs sa lahat, ang dami narin natin napagdaanan, may nakakatawa, nakakaiyak, nakakapikon, nakakahiya, lahat lahat na, pero hanggang ngayon magkasama pa rin tayo. Hindi nga lang official na naging tayo, pero bilang magkaibigan," Angeline wrote in that specific birthday greeting, adding that their genuine love for each other will certainly last forever.
