Toni Muñoz, the percussionist-vocalist of the iconic folk-pop band Ben&Ben, is currently taking time off in order to recover from her recent major surgery.
The band took to social media last January 9 to let fans know that Toni will be taking a break from Ben&Ben’s shows and events while she gets better. In the post, they included a picture of Toni recovering in the hospital and invited fans to pray for her speedy recovery alongside them.
Their posts also came with a “life update” from Toni herself. She wrote that the surgery was a success and that she has been improving ever since. “I underwent a major surgery yesterday morning and it went well! I’m okay! There’s still pain, of course, but I feel so much better than yesterday. At alam kong mas magiging okay pa sa mga susunod na araw,” she said.
Toni also made sure to thank the people around her who have acted as her support system and said that she plans to rest well so that she can recover faster. “Salamat sa mga pamilya at kaibigan na nagdasal para sa akin, at sa mga nagpadala ng mga mensahe,” she wrote. “I promise to take it easy para mabilis akong gumaling nang tuluyan. Your prayers, well-wishes, and messages are very well appreciated!”
Neither the band nor Toni herself shared specific details regarding her surgery or how long she’ll need to recover. Either way, though, fans are just happy to see that she’s doing alright and taking it easy.
