Rest in peace, RJ Rosales

I'm absolutely shocked and saddened to hear of the passing of RJ Rosales.

I first met RJ when I did a musical with him, when I was 17 years old. I knew exactly who he was when he walked into the rehearsal room because, when I was 15, I saw him sing at the Grand Philippine Fiesta, in Sydney, where I was completely blown away by his song and the power of his voice. I was SO inspired. I taped his performance and used to sing along to it - I never told him this, out of sheer embarrassment. I wish I had... I'm sure he would have loved it.

Thank you, RJ.
Thank you, for inspiring me.
Thank you, for introducing me to Martin Nievera.
Thank you, for being so kind and lovely to work with, and
thank you, for being here and for sharing your talents with the world.

I know you're up there, in your new home, singing with the angels
and making them sound infinitely better.

MARAMING, maraming salamat po sa inyo.

Rest in peace.

“None of us seem to accept that we are incredibly precious -
that when I dehumanize you, I am dehumanized.
God’s dream is that we could know that we are members of one family.
There are no outsiders. Black, white, rich, poor, male, female, gay,
lesbian, straight. Bin Laden. Bush. Sharon. They all belong.”

— Archbishop Desmond Tutu

The pain that this little guy (below) is in, is just heartbreaking.
