Eva Santos In Action @ the Midnight Sun Intl Song Festival


Let us take a look back at the inspirational story of Boholana diva Eva Santos who reached the crest of her musical career only to turn her back on it when motherhood and family beckoned her

Eva Gulle- de los Santos better known in the live entertainment circuit as Eva Santos and who hails from Jagna, Bohol did more than just represent our country in the annual Midnight Sun Song Festival in Lahti, Finland on June 6, 1992

She enthralled everyone inside the cavernous competition venue the moment her mellifluous voice started to soar through.

It was a spellbinding performance especially when she belted it out and hit the right notes.

Eva's awesome interpretation really brought out the story behind her composition, every emotion, every nuance and every pause made her song come to life and so when the announcement of winners came, Eva was already jittery and tense but there was relief also for she knew that she had given it her all

It was a moment of pride and pure delight not only for Eva but also for her jubilant countrymen especially those who were there in Finland when she won 2nd Runner Up honors.


To this day, Eva still holds the distinction of being one of a select few composers in the Philippines to have sung her own composition in the an international song festival and place in the winners' circle

She may not have made it in the Voice of the Philippines where winners are determined not through sheer vocal quality but text votes

But for us who are avid Eva Santos admirers and believers, You would always be the Voice

Here’s the video that captured the award- winning performance of Eva Santos in the global stage
