Tribute to Robin
Today one year ago we again had to say goodbye to a dear Gibb.
Although he'll always be in our hearts and his music will live on forever
we will never be able to enjoy his presence anymore
or go to a concert where we can hear his magical voice
and see him on stage with his brothers smiling his lovely smile.
We will never forget
and will continue to cherish all wonderful memories and most of all
we'll keep the Gibb music alive, forever....

I can't wait to tell you guys where this tour is going next #barrygibb #mythologytour so stoked !
Already one year has passed since the premiere of the Titanic Requiem at the Westminster Central Hall in London.
Co-composer R. J. Gibb introduced the performance, but his father Robin was too sick to attend.
To honor Robin in his absence, a recording of the song Don't Cry Alone was played with lights dimmed and a silent orchestra as the audience listened to the heart-felt lyrics:
"I'll be there for you forever. Don't you ever cry." As the song finished the audience rose to give a standing ovation.
