Vanessa Hudgens Is Simply Incredible As She Sings Live In Grease Just Hours After Her Father's Death

by Emmy Griffiths Published on 1 February 2016

Shortly before her performance in Grease! Live at the weekend, High School Musical's Vanessa Hudgens announced that her father had passed away after a short battle with cancer. The actress announced the news on Twitter on Saturday night, giving her less than 24 hours to process the news before performing as Rizzo the next day.

Grease! Live was performed at the weekend in the USA to critical acclaim, and was made all the more respectful as Vanessa, who played Rizzo, had lost her father less than 24 hours earlier. We can only applaud her on her strength and resolution, especially since she is absolutely incredible in the role.

The actress, best known for her role as Gabriella in the High School Musical franchise, announced her father's death on Twitter, writing:

Not only was her performance wonderful, but celebrity viewers and critics alike tweeted their huge respect for Vanessa for going through with the show during such difficult personal circumstances.
