Charice dedicated Joe Cocker’s ‘You Are So Beautiful’ to her estranged father, who was killed Oct. 31 in the Philippines.

Charice delivered her most emotional performance to date Nov. 25 when she paid tribute to her late father at David Foster and Friends’ Mandalay Bay concert in Las Vegas. “Tonight, I want to dedicate a song for him,” Charice told fans at David Foster and Friends’ Mandalay Bay concert, before launching into an unrehearsed rendition of Joe Cocker‘s “You Are So Beautiful.”

Her estranged father, Ricky Pempengco, was stabbed to death in the Philippines on Oct. 31 by a drunken stranger. Charice immediately left her tour, and is only now returning to the stage.
