Another great loss – RIP Mr. Johnny Delgado

23 11 2009

Just when I though the deaths of famous artists are gone, here is another news. Johnny Delgado passed away due to lymphoma. I like his movies notably Ang Alamat ni Julian Makabayan , Kakabakaba Ka Ba, Batch ’81, Balweg, A Dangerous Life, Tanging Yaman, Kailangan Kita, Santa Santita, Ang Huling Araw ng Linggo and Labing-labing. My last encounter with the Johnny Delgado was in the screening of Labing Labing in this year’s CinemaLaya 2009. This is the photo I took with Johnny Delgado, Laurice Guillen, Anna Feleo and Ina Feleo:

In Labing Labing there is a song that now makes me want to cry. It is the song of Johnny Delgado “Ikaw at ako”. It is a song of strength, love and hope. Amidst the very hardships we endure, there is an assurance that there is someone always with us and will be with us this the end of our lives. Here is the music video of the song:

I hope that this song would remind us of the shortness of life and the value of making most out of this time.
