Charice Pempengco remembers slain father

Singer/actress Charice Pempengco has paid a touching tribute to her father one year after he was murdered in her native Philippines.

The Glee star was left devastated after her father Ricky was fatally stabbed in the back and chest with an ice pick on 31 October (11), and she cancelled all her work commitments to be with her grieving family.

Pempengco is still feeling the pain from the tragic loss, and she took to her Twitter.com page on Wednesday (31Oct12) to mark the first anniversary of his passing.

She quoted lyrics from Chris Brown's song Free Run, writing, "So I’ll just free run/ 'til my feet start to lift off the ground/ I will just free run/ 'til I find myself right where you are," before adding, "I love you, Daddy. Take care always."

She also re-tweeted messages of support from her fans, including one which read, "I'm sure he's very proud of you and watching you from above."
