Christian Bautista on rivalry with Erik Santos: 'We bring out the best in each other'

Christian Bautista said his rivalry with Erik Santos in the music industry is not a conflict but a healthy competition.

On Tuesday's episode of "Fast Talk with Boy Abunda," the Kapuso singer said he and Erik help each other become better singers.

"It's a great place to be in kasi kahit na rivals kami, and kahit na friends kami, we bring out the best in each other," Asia's Romantic Balladeer said.

"So, 'pag meron siyang nilabas [na kanta], gusto kong galingan din kasi ginalingan niya," he added. "'Pag meron [naman] akong nilabas, gusto rin niyang galingan."

At the end of the day, Christian said their supporters benefit the most from their rivalry.

"Ang nag-be-benefit talaga is our fans and audience, so we keep that in mind," he said.

"We are the best of friends, and yet we have to do our best in every show," he added.

Earlier this year, Christian held a concert to commemorate his 20th year in the music scene.

Previously, the singer expressed his gratitude for being part of the "Unbreak My Heart" official soundtrack with the song "You Are Everything."
