Five years without Tose

Musical and sports events will mark Tuesday the fifth anniversary from the death of Macedonia's pop icon Tose Proeski.
Tose's hits will be shown on a big screen at national arena "Philip II" in the evening, preceding and during the halftime of football match Macedonia-Serbia.
Special programme "Forever in Our Hearts" will be broadcast at the Macedonian Television following the match, with Macedonian singers performing Tose's songs.
Marathon runners, who started their race in Nova Gradiska - Croatia, should arrive in Krusevo today. The 4. Memorial International Volleyball Tournament was also held in Tose's hometown.
His Memoriam Home has been visited by 180,000 people during the 1,5 year from its opening.
His fans organized the "Starry Sky" on October 5, marking the anniversary from his final concert. The events also have a humanitarian character, highlighting Tose's greatness as humanist and UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador. Ten days ago the 'Tose Fan Forum' organized the traditional blood donation campaign, whereas the Red Cross of RM will launch today the campaign on the International Day against Hunger - October 16.
On 16 October 2007, Tose Proeski died in a car accident on the Zagreb–Lipovac highway near Nova Gradiska, Croatia. He was a passenger along with his manager Ljiljana Petrovic in a Volkswagen Touareg driven by Georgij Georgijevski. The Touareg crashed into the back of a truck and then into the median barrier, killing Tose instantly. Of the other two passengers, only the driver suffered serious injuries. October 17 was pronounced a national day of mourning in Macedonia. After his death, the Government honored him with title "Meritorius Citizen of Macedonia".
