She bravely continued with her performance despite losing her father Greg after a six month battle with cancer just one day before the performance.

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