MANILA—Nearly a month after the passing of Rico J. Puno, his daughter shared a virtual duet with the late music icon as part of a tribute concert over the weekend.

Tosca Puno took the stage at Solaire Theater with a rendition of one of Rico J’s classic hits, “Kapalaran.” Initially performing solo, she was joined by her father’s singing voice from a past studio recording.

Complementing parts of “Kapalaran,” the video recording made Tosca’s performance unfold as a duet with Rico J, as seen in a Facebook video uploaded on the page of music arranger Adonis Tabanda.

The number was part of the recent Music & Laughter, originally a trio concert with Giselle Sanchez, Marissa Sanchez and Rico J Puno, which then evolved into a tribute show in the wake of his death.
