Goodbye Francis M!

No words today. Just deep, deep sadness for the passing of a wonderful soul. Someone who crossed generations with his rap songs — the ultimate Pinoy rapper. An optimist in the midst of his cancer. God-loving. FRANCIS “KIKO” MAGALONA

Kiko, I thought you finally won over the big C but God had a different purpose for you. Today, we lost a good man in you. We will miss you, Francis. You endeared yourself to my generation as well as to my kids. 

I found these YouTube videos of his last interview on StarTalk GMA last Oct. 25, 2008 and his performance at Eat Bulaga with Ely Buendia on the same day (thanks to DCRJPinoyBiscuits03). One of the things Kiko kept saying in both shows was: “I am home” (referring to his return to GMA). But now you are TRULY HOME, Kiko! 

Here is a clip of Francis M doing Reach for the Stars (thanks to avidllongoren)

    Go forth in peace, Francis, prepare a place for us, a much more wonderful place you’ve dreamt the Filipino people would enjoy here on earth.

    This is really sad Jane. Francis was my high school crush. I used to call him in his home and his dad, the late Mr. Pancho Magalona would answer the phone. Super dyahe talaga ako that time. They’re really very nice, good people. Am sure, he will be greatly missed. Rest in peace Francis.
