It’s a sad day for the OPM community.

Iconic Filipino singer Rico J. Puno died of cardiac arrest on October 30, Tuesday. The heartbreaking news was announced by Anna Puno, Rico’s sister-in-law.

“I am seized with deep emotional shock when I found out that our OPM King – Kuya Rico J. Puno, has passed away this morning (Manila time),” Anna wrote. “Numbed with grief, I would like to call on all entertainers in the OPM industry as well as his worldwide fans to stop for a moment and say a prayer to one of the most respected singers in the country.”

The veteran singer previously had triple bypass surgery in 2015 and underwent a procedure earlier this year for the insertion of a pacemaker. He was also hospitalized recently due to diabetes complications.

To thank him for all his contributions to OPM, here are some of Puno’s iconic songs that you can stream all day:

1. “May Bukas Pa”

2. “Macho Gwapito”

3. “Kapalaran”

4. “Sorry Na Pwede Ba”

5. “Magkasuyo Buong Gabi”
