The FYR Macedonian national post has issued a new postage stamp with the face of the late megastar To�e Proeski. The stamp will be issued in one million copies. The popular singer was killed in a car crash earlier this year.

The stamp was officially presented at a ceremony in the singer's native town of Kruševo, in the presence of his parents, relatives and a great number of fans. The head of FYR Macedonian Post, Sadul Iziri, said that "in feeling with the pain of your parents and the whole nation, we are dedicating a stamp to you that will travel the world,so that you can become eternal."

A Toše Proeski Foundation has been initiated with the building of a statue and a museum in Kruševo, where a traditional music manifestation will be held in his honour.

Toše Proeski was killed in a car crash on a Croatian motorway on 16th October this year. He was extremely popular in all of the former Yugoslav nations, and represented his country at the Eurovision Song Contest 2004 in Istanbul.
