Charice skips Singapore show




MANILA, Philippines - International singing sensation Charice cancelled her upcoming performance in Singapore, as she grieves over the death of her father Ricky Pempengco.
Charice made the statement on her official Twitter account, just after she found out about the murder of her father.
The singer apologized to her fans in Singapore who want to see her perform, but she explained that she needs to go back to Manila to be with her family, who are in mourning.
"I am very sorry to all my fans from Singapore. I am not going to be there to be part of David Foster and Friends concert. I have to go back to the Philippines as soon as possible to be with my family. I hope you all understand. I love you all and I will see you next year," Charice said.
Ricky, who is separated from Charice's mom Raquel, was stabbed in A. Bonifacio Road, Barangay Laram, San Pedro, Laguna.

A police report said Pempengco was in a drinking session and then left to buy a cigarette.The suspect, identified as Angel Capili Jr., approached him and stabbed him with an ice pick.
Pempengco was able to walk away and then sit on a pavement, but the suspect went back to stab him to death.
The suspect quickly left the scene.
Authorities said Pempengco might have survived the stabbing had barangay officials been able to rush him to the hospital.
Charice's mother burst into tears after she found out that her children's father was killed.
In an exclusive interview with abs-cbnNEWS.com Tuesday morning, Raquel said she was unaware of Ricky's death.
