Vanessa Hudgens Dedicates “Grease: Live” Performance to Late Father

Posted Monday February 1, 2016 9:32 AM GMT

Last night (January 31) Vanessa Hudgens did a marvelous job as Rizzo in FOX’s “Grease: Live” and it turns out her father Greg passed away just 24 hours prior to the broadcast.

The “High School Musical” actress’ dad died of cancer, though rather than pulling out of the gig, Hudgens dedicated her performance to her proud papa’s memory.

Vanessa tweeted, “I am so sad to say that last night my daddy, Greg passed away from stage 4 cancer. Thank you to everyone who kept him in your prayers. Tonight, I do the show in his honor.”
