Family and friends gathered for a tribute concert for Royette Padilla, the brother of Robin Padilla and BB Gandanghari, who passed away early in January at the age of 58.
Photos were shared by Robin's wife Mariel Rodriguez, who hosted the special event held at the Museo de Padilla on Wednesday, February 17, on the 40th day after Royette's death.
"Last night I had the privilege to host Kuya Royette’s 40th day. The Padilla family held their first family concert and if you ask me I think they proved once again how much family should love one another. 1 word to describe the Padilla family... SOLID!!!! They are clannish, protective, extremely talented and the family I married into...we are WHOLE!" she said.
Directed by Rommel Padilla, the star-studded concert featured live performances by Robin, Daniel Padilla, Karla Estrada, Chris Padilla, and Vina Morales, with the special participation of Zsa Zsa Padilla, Martin Nievera, Karylle and Yael Yuzon, and the Hilera Band.
It was on January 8 when his sister Rebecca Padilla confirmed Royette's death via a Facebook post, writing: "Pls whisper a prayer for our brother Royette Padilla. A silent prayer for his eternal peace, please."
Royette, a former actor who has appeared in films such as 'Di na natuto (Sorry na, puede ba?) in 1993 and Mistah in 1994, died of a heart attack.
