MANILA, Philippines — APO Hiking Society members Jim Paredes and Boboy Garovillo paid tribute to former President Benigno Aquino III with the song “Noy.”

In his YouTube channel, Jim posted the song’s music video.

“A song I made for Pnoy after I heard about his passing. My humble tribute to a great man,” he wrote. 

In the song, Jim said he’s saddened by the passing of Noy.  



“Kamakailan, ating nabalitaan na pumanaw na ang ating kaibigan / Ako’y nabigla, nalungkot at napaluha / kasama ng milyong napaluksa,” Paredes sings in the music video.

“Hindi ako nakapunta sa lamay niya / Kay daming bumalik na alaala / Ang buhay na inalay niya para sa ating bayan / Nasayang, nawaldas sabi ng ilan,” Boboy continues.

Jim and Boboy also performed the song at the “Salamat PNoy: Alaala At Alay Ng Musikang Pinoy,” an event honoring PNoy to mark the 40th day of his death.  

The event was hosted Jim and Leah Navarro. They were also joined by OPM artists Agot Isidro, Audie Gemora, Bituin Escalante, Celeste Legaspi, Debonair District, Dingdong Dantes, Ebe Dancel, Enchong Dee, Erik Santos, Frankie Pangilinan, Gary Valenciano, Iza Calzado, John Arcilla, Mike Villegas, Mitch Valdes, Noel Cabangon, Ogie Alcasid, Radioactive Sago Project, Regine Velasquez, Ryan Cayabyab Singers and The Company.
