LOS ANGELES (AP) - Vanessa Hudgens will take the stage in Fox’s “Grease: Live” on Sunday night in honor of her father, who passed away on Saturday.

The actress tweeted on Sunday that her father, Greg, had died the night before and thanked those who kept him in their prayers. Hudgens said he was suffering from stage 4 cancer.

On Sunday night, Hudgens will be performing the role of Rydell High’s resident bad girl Rizzo in “Grease: Live,” which is a hybrid of the stage and movie musical. Julianne Hough and Broadway veteran Aaron Tveit also star as Sandy and Danny.

“Grease: Live” airs on Fox on Sunday from 7-10 p.m. EST.
