Rest in Peace, Macedonian Angel

In the wee hours of the morning of October 16, 2007, near Nova Gradiska, Croatia, a bright light was extinguished. Tose Proeski, one of Southeastern Europe’s rising pop stars, was killed when the vehicle he was riding in slammed into the back of a truck, killing him and injuring the car’s driver and other passenger. He was only 26 years old, but had already achieved so much. In 2004 he was named a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador, and recorded the song “This World” which became the UNICEF anthem. In 2007 he released Igri Bez Granici (Games Without Borders) and was working on another (which is why he was travelling in Croatia).

You will be missed.
