An actress who performed live on national TV Sunday night announced the news of her father’s death just hours before the show went on. CNN reports that Vanessa Hudgens, one of the stars of the high-profile Fox broadcast of “Grease: Live,” announced her father’s death that morning.
Hudgens sent out a tweet Sunday morning saying: “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.”
She followed it with another tweet saying: “Tonight, I do the show in his honor.”
