Toshe Proeski

toseBorn Todor Proeski on January 25, 1981, in Prilep, he was raised in Krusevo, studying classical music and at age 12 attracting widespread attention for his performance at the annual children's song festival Zlatno Slavejce.

Following this public exposure, he was awarded for his strong vocal capabilities. This led to his rise to fame when he participated in the music festival Makfest in Štip in 1997. His fanbase quickly grew and he continued to make use of festivals, such as SkopjeFest and OhridFest. Over the next several years, he recorded four best-selling albums and held humanitarian concerts throughout the Republic of Macedonia, and toured the Balkan region extensively.  He was awarded with the Mother Theresa Humanitarian Award and in 2003 he became a Regional UNICEF Ambassador.

In 2004 Proeski was named a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador, and recorded the hit single "This World" which became the UNICEF anthem. Tose fulfilled his position with passion and sincerity, giving numerous humanitarian concerts and fundraising events for children with disabilities and for the rehabilitation of the children’s clinic in Skopje. He helped to increase the awareness of HIV/AIDS prevention among young people throughout the Balkans._

Tose's last concert was held on October 5, 2007 for the Primary Education Project for USAID. The concert raised tens of thousands of euros for the primary schools of Macedonia. During the early morning of October 16, 2007, Proeski was killed in a car accident on the Zagreb-Lipovac Highway in Croatia. On October 17, pronounced a national day of mourning across Macedonia, he was laid to rest in his hometown of Krusevo.

In memoriam to a great Macedonian and humanitarian…truly gone too soon.
