Singer-composer of “Pusong Bato” dies at 61

MANILA – Renee “Alon” dela Rosa, 61, died of illness on September 15th inside an ambulance, due to lack of oxygen.

He was also rejected by 40 hospitals and those rejections, according to the immediate family, also contributed to the untimely demise of the singer-composer.

Dela Rosa was the original composer of “Pusong Bato” which became a hit song many years ago, and it was first sung by Aimee Torres.

On September 14 in her Facebook page, Alon’s daughter Justine dela Rosa said: “Hello po, humihingi po kami ng kahit kaunting tulong pambili lang po ng oxygen para sa aking papa na si ‘Alon.’ Nandito po kami ngayon sa district hospital. Any amount will do po and prayers na rin po. Salamat po.”

Later, around 5:00 p.m. her daughter also asks for help again. She said her father needs oxygen.  “ASAP: Need Oxygen Tank na may laman. at Private Hospital na rin po around QC na may avail na room po, please.”

Her daughter also said three hours after that her father badly needs a hospital room. “Badly needed, private hospital with available room. Or baka may kakilala po kayo na tao na marrefer nyo po sa amin. Please po need ma-admit sa ospital ng papa ko.”


It was learned that there were 40 hospitals who denied her father admission, even though he was already at the critical stage of his life.

“Grabe po, 40+ na hospital po ang pinuntahan namin at maski isa po, wala man lang po nagbigay ng first aid, dextrose at yung oxygen tank po. Yung iba po tinataboy pa po kami at sinusungitan po. Na-record po namin yung ibang trato po sa amin ng mga ospital, kung paano kami sinungitan.”

The daughter said she’s been begging to hospitals to admit them considering the critical condition of her father but no hospitals accepted him.

She said she cannot understand why hospitals were denying them. She’s been requesting to use even the hospital premises or just outside the wards.

Nadsla dela Rose, Alon’s niece also claimed the singer-composer became so ill after they travelled many places just to look for a hospital that will accept him.

“In behalf of dela rosa family grabe ginawa ng mga hayop na doctor at hospitals na tumanggi sa tito ko Renee Alon grabe grabe! “In short napaka worst almost 48hrs na.” she narrated sadly.

Nadsla said hospitals were too harsh and no humanitarian considerations even a critical patient won’t be accepted for no enough reasons.

“Sana wag mangyayari sa mga pamilya nila yung nangyari sa amin,” Nadsla said.
