The Philippine Star - - ENTERTAINMENT -

Fondly re­mem­bered in death, Is­abel Granada (whose re­mains were cre­mated last Sun­day, Nov. 12) will be hon­ored with a star on the Walk of Fame along with 18 oth­ers on Nov. 21, 6 p.m. at East­wood City, Que­zon City.

Other post­hu­mous hon­orees in­clude Chichay, Man­ing Bor­laza, Joe Taruc and Ed­die Romero.

The other in­ductees are:

•Movie & Film: Re­gal Ma­tri­arch Lily Mon­teverde and Em­poy Mar­quez;

•Tele­vi­sion: Mat­teo Guidi­celli, Solenn Heussaff and Kris Ber­nal;

•Mu­sic: Parokya ni Edgar and Jake Zyrus (who, as Charice, al­ready has her own star);

•News & Pub­lic Af­fairs: Karen Dav­ila, An­thony Taberna, Atom Araullo and Tulfo Brothers (Mon, Ben, Raffy and Er­win);

•Ra­dio: Mely Ta­gasa and Joe D’Mango; and

•The­ater: Fred­die San­tos.

Pat­terned af­ter Hol­ly­wood’s Walk of Fame and put up 12 years ago, the Philip­pine ver­sion is a brain­child of the late Master Show­man Ger­man

“Kuya Germs” Moreno un­der the non-profit Walk of Fame or­ga­ni­za­tion to give recog­ni­tion to the peo­ple in the Movie, TV, Ra­dio, The­ater and Mu­sic in­dus­tries “who have reached

the epit­ome of suc­cess and have greatly made a pos­i­tive in­flu­ence to its growth,” ac­cord­ing to

Kuya Germs’ son Fed­erico Moreno, who now heads the foun­da­tion.

Ben­e­fi­ciary of the event is the Mow­el­fund Foun­da­tion.

Aside from Fed­erico, the other WFF of­fi­cers are: Kevin Andrew Tan, chair­man of the board; Alice Eduardo, vice pres­i­dent; Marichu Vera-Perez Maceda, trea­surer; lawyer Lito Go, cor­po­rate sec­re­tary; Your Fun­farer, Pub­lic Re­la­tions Of­fi­cer (PRO); and Isko Moreno, Dr. Ce­cilio Pe­dro, Joey Aba­can, Dr. John Nite, and Jose Miguel Moreno, trustees.

A sad note about Kuya Germs: Many of the tal­ents that he built up have con­ve­niently for­got­ten (or have de­vel­oped am­ne­sia) af­ter his death in Jan­uary 2016. As far as we know, only Jak Roberto re­mem­bers to of­fer prayers on

Kuya Germs’ birth­day at his grave and Ken Chan who of­fered flow­ers last All Souls’ Day. (E-mail re­ac­tions at ent­philstar@ya­hoo.com. For more up­dates, pho­tos and videos, visit www.philstar. com/fun­fare or fol­low me on In­sta­gram @the­re­al­rick­ylo.)
