The hashtag #HappyBirthdayFrancisM trended Friday morning with Francis’ fans also taking it to Twitter to greet him on his birthday:
Francis was known for his songs that address political ideas and social problems. His songs “Mga Kababayan Ko” (My Countrymen) and “Tayo’y Mga Pinoy”(We Are Filipinos) also became popular because they promote nationalistic ideals. Because of this, he was awarded a posthumous Presidential Medal of Merit “for his musical and artistic brilliance, his deep faith in the Filipino and his sense of national pride that continue to inspire us.”
Francis was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia on August 2008 and succumbed to cancer March 6 the next year.
