Gone too soon: Francis M.

6 03 2009


I arrived late this night and watched SNN. The first thing in the news is the passing of Mr. Francis Durango Magalona aka Kiko or FrancisM. For eight months this man fought Leukemia is such hope and courage. I personally admire this guy for being a true role model of free speech. His music brings hope to aspiring artists to find this own mark in the industry. Kiko revolutionized RAP when we knew only the Americans do it. I’m not actually a fan but there are only 2 Francis M songs I like. These are “Cold Summer Nights” and “Kaleidoscope World”. The first I heard these songs; I was blown away because I though is a foreign artist who sand this.  Yun pala si Kiko pala. Grabe Talaga… Sobrang Astig for me ang “Kaleidoscope World”. It is actually one of my theme songs. Whenever I hear this song, it always transforms my outlook in life. The song simply tells us that all of us are unique but it is not the reason why all of us shouldn’t co-exists. Respecting each others’ differences is the only way to be able to see the colorful lives of the people who are living in this kaleidoscope world…. Such an ingenious play of words and music makes this song one of my national anthems.

Thanks for being born a Filipino, a Bosconian and most of all a True Icon of this generation. I know Jesus is with you right now. I always believe that the first Friday and first Saturday of the month are blessed days because the gates of heaven are open for all those who believe in the Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary. My prayers tonight are dedicated to your eternal peace of those people you have touched. You will be dearly missed.

Grant him Oh Lord Eternal Life and let Perpetual Light shine upon you. May you rest in peace. Francis M.

As a tribute, I bring you “Kaleidoscope World” by Francis M.
