I'm actually having a hard time blogging about this 'coz I love her a lot.

A fellow Bicolano, Melody was going to Naga City this morning when the accident happened.

According to ABS-CBN News, Melody with make-up artist / fashion designer Alden Orense and two others were on their way from Melody's hometown in Albay to Naga City when their car collided with a passenger bus going to Legazpi City.

The crash happened at Sitio Banasi, Brgy. Pawili, Bula, Camarines Sur, that's 15 minutes away from the famous CamSur Watersports Complex (CWC) and 30 minutes away from Naga City, where she was about to judge in the screening of applicants for the Peñafrancia Festival's Miss Bicolandia 2010.

The report said that she was also about to meet her boyfriend in Naga City. Gersbach, Orense and the driver were dead on the spot while the other is in critical condition.

Melody Gersbach was only 24 years old and she died on the day the Philippines is commemorating the 26th Death Anniversary of National Hero Ninoy

Melody was Mutya ng Magayon 2008, Miss Bicolandia 2008 and Binibining Pilipinas-International 2009. She won those titles in just less than a year. (More Pictures of Melody)

She later competed in the Miss International 2009 pageant held in China where she was a huge favorite and placed as a Top 15 semifinalist.

Just this year, Melody was about to be in a love triangle with Aga Muhlach and Ai-Ai delas Alas on ABS-CBN's sitcom "M3: Malay Mo Madevelop". She already did a pictorial with Aga and Ai, but for an unclear reason, Melody's appearance in the show didn't push through.

Last May, Melody participated in the BPCI's Grand Santacruzan at the Araneta Center and just last August 2, she attended the send-off party for Miss Philippines Universe 2010 Maria Venus Raj. It was already her last time to take part in a Binibining Pilipinas event.

You'll forever be remembered Melody.
