A lot of TRIBUTES has been made already in the WEB, Television, Radio, and other MEDIA FORMAT, but here's my own tribute giving my last respect to one great FILIPINO ARTIST .....and that's FRANCIS MAGALONA. From the RAPublic of the PHILIPPINES!!
Last weekend, I was able to tune in to the TRIBUTE done by EAT BULAGA for the FATHER OF PINOY RAP and was really touched on the production. GALING!! Like me, FRANCIS M., is also an advocate of "PROUD TO BE PINOY" theme and the MAN FROM MANILA would always be forever in the hearts of every FILIPINOS. As you have noticed, ever since I've started this little BLOG wayback 2007 and entitled my very first blogspost as "BIG NEW BEGINING", I have already placed the PHILIPPINE FLAG on the right side of my blog to remind everyone that this blog is definitely "MADE IN THE PHILIPPINES". YUP!! Francis M. is very nationalistic and patriotic too and that reflected a lot on his songs for the entire generation to keep. One very key person to be missed in the PHILIPPINE MUSIC INDUSTRY and the NATION itself. This reminds us that life is indeed very fragile and we have to make the most out of it. Our stay here on earth is only temporary and everytime we breathe that's a major "THANK YOU" to our creator. We may be here today...and gone tomorrow. HEALTH IS WEALTH!! We will miss you FRANCIS M.!!!
Here are some VIDEO CLIPS from

Btw, I went to five record shops lately and all of them doesn't anymore have any FRANCIS MAGALONA Original CDs. Hmmmmp!! HARD TO FIND? I guess we will see some RE-ISSUES coming up in the future like what happened to all ERASERHEADS album wherein after the FIRST REUNION CONCERT you could already see all their albums back in the market. Btw, on the FINAL SET of the ERASERHEADS CONCERT, the guys from E-HEADS sang their version of "KALEIDOSCOPE WORLD" which they dedicated to their dear friend FRANCIS MAGALONA.
