Jukebox King Victor Wood dies at 75 due to COVID-19 complications


Victor Wood, who made his mark as the King of the Jukebox in the Philippines, died on April 23, as a result of COVID-19 complications. He was 75 years old at the time.


On Facebook this afternoon, director Carlo Ortega Cuevas, who worked on Wood's forthcoming biopic "Jukebox King: The Life Story of Victor Wood," paid tribute to the late singer.


“Condolences to the family of one OPM columnist, the JUKEBOX KING Victor Wood. I am blessed because before God rested him I heard from him a story that is now history,” the director said.


“It is a long and fruitful story about life, fame, fall, rise… and death. While he was talking about his childhood, I felt like I was growing up with him.” Cueva added.


The director expressed his gratitude for the opportunity to collaborate with the Jukebox King, emphasizing that he would never forget the lessons he learnt from him.


Cuevas shared with fans a video of Wood singing “Fraulein,” one of the late musician’s many hits, while he played the guitar.
