Veteran Songwriter Musical Scorer Willy Cruz Passes At 70, Let's Pray For The Repose Of His Soul

THANK YOU for the music, Mr. Wilfredo Buencamino Cruz, the composer of such well loved hit tunes like Pangarap na Bituin , Bituing Walang Ningning, Sana'y Wala Nang Wakas, Never Say Goodbye, Doon Lang, Kumusta Ka, Kahit Na, Sana'y Maghintay ang Walang Hanggan, May Minamahal, and Araw-araw, Gabi-gabi. He wrote many commercial jingles and also won awards as a musical scorer for films like "Bukas Luluhod ang Mga Tala", "Pahiram ng Isang Umaga" and "Hanggang Kailan Kita Mamahalin".

Popularly known as Willy, he passed on last Monday at the age of 70. He was confined at the St. Luke's Medical Center for a stroke. Born on January 30, 1947, he comes from a family of musicians and among his musical relatives are Francisco Buencamino, Nonong Buencamino and Lorrie Ilustre.

Our wish is for a playwright to write a full length play stringing along all of Willy's hit songs as they are all catchy and lovable. Let's all pray for the repose of his soul.
