The music and charity worlds are mourning the death of Boyzone singer Stephen Gately, who passed away on the Spanish island of Majorca on Saturday, October 10.
The singer was an ambassador of Missing People, a charity that provides support for missing children, vulnerable adults and families left in limbo.
“Stephen Gately was a compassionate man who was committed to using his popularity with young people to raise awareness of Missing People’s Runaway Helpline, and supporting families with missing loved ones,” the charity said in a release. "His support of the charity directly impacted many vulnerable adults, missing children and families across the UK. It is a very sad day for all those whose lives Stephen touched.
“The staff and volunteers at Missing People wish to send their collective sympathy to Stephen’s family, friends and colleagues.”
Other supporters of the charity include Richard Branson and Cliff Richard.
Boyzone members Ronan Keating and Keith Duffy are reportedly flying to Majorca, and we at Look To The Stars send the band and Stephen’s family our sincere condolences.
