“Dahil sa pandemya, maraming tao tayong nami-miss at gustong makasama at mayakap na matagal na nating hindi nakikita—Kapamilya, malalapit na kaibigan, kasintahan, at mga mahal sa buhay. Ngayong darating na kapaskuhan, sino ang gusto mong kayakap?” Erik shared on Instagram along with a photo and video of him with his family.
“Paskong Kayakap Ka” was written and composed by multi-awarded songwriter-producer Jonathan Manalo and expresses one’s desire to be with the special people in his life to make the Christmas celebration more special. It is accompanied by a soft piano instrumental that sets the song’s nostalgic mood. It has every bit of potential to be lined up as a Christmas staple along the likes of Jose Mari Chan's stuff and Ariel Rivera's "Sana Ngayong Pasko".
On YouTube, netizens turned sentimental as they share how they can relate to the song having spent Christmas without their loved ones for years now.
Last October, the King of OPM Theme Songs dropped his version of the worship song “Sigaw Ng Puso” about fully submitting to God’s will despite experiencing overwhelming distresses. He is regularly seen as a host and performer on ASAP Natin ‘To.
