Roxanne Barcelo became emotional on It's Showtime Saturday, November 9.
After her Tawag ng Tanghalan Celebrity Champions Ang Huling Tapatan performance, she shared that she joined because of her father.
According to her, her mother texted her on her last performance saying "Ang ama mo, mula sa langit, naka-smile sa'yo."
The Unkabogable Star then asked what she would like to tell her father at this point in time.|
Before she could start speaking, Roxanne composed herself but became emotional, nevertheless.
"Tatay, this is my promise kahit hindi kita nareplyan sa text mo. Sabi niya kasi 'Kanta ka lang, anak. Sayang, 'nak.' 'Di ako nakapag-reply," she shared.
"Dahil sa Showtime, nabigyan ako ng pagkakataon para umawit para sa'yo dahil ikaw lang ang naniniwala. Nararamdaman ko ang pagmamahal. Salamat, Panginoon. Salamat, Lord. Salamat, Tatay dahil napaka-gandang buhay ang pinakita mo sa akin. Hindi man ako ang perpektong anak, your love for me is perfect and unconditional and so I have learned to accept myself because of you. Salamat, Tatay ko. I miss you so so much," she said emotionally.
The comedy superstar then expressed how genuine the actress is despite the many emotions she showed.
"Ang dami mong imahe pero nararamdaman namin ang authenticity ng puso mo and we love you," he said.
