The Death Update

There hasn't been one in a while.

A very sad day in Macedonia, Croatia and the greater former Yugoslavia as Toshe Proeski died Tuesday in a car accident. He was 26.

Proeski was an extremely popular (apparently) pop singer who, in 2004, participated in the prestigious Eurovision singing competition (think Idol, then multiply by the EU).

He was buried yesterday in Macedonia with full state and religious honors.

Here is a sample of some of his work.

Here is an excellent article explaining better than I can why Proeski was an important figure in an area that has suffered extremely.

And here is the obit.
