Everyone was in tears after the It’s Showtime Family paid Franco Hernandez a heartbreaking tribute.
The netizens and the avid viewers of It’s Showtime were left in tears after the It’s Showtime family of Franco Hernandez paid him a tribute on a live episode of It’s Showtime.
Franco Miguel Hernandez Lumanlan, a member of It’s Showtime’s all-male group called Hashtags, passed away on Saturday in a drowning incident in Davao Occidental after their motorboat was hit with a huge and strong wave.
Franco died on Saturday, the day before Anne Curtis’ wedding in New Zealand. Vice Ganda, Vhong Navarro and the other hosts of It’s Showtime weren’t able to pay tribute to Franco right away because they were all in New Zealand and the episodes of Showtime were all taped.
And today, November 15, 2017, Wednesday, the It’s Showtime hosts, Hashtags, Girlfriends, Staffs, and everyone who belongs to the It’s Showtime Family have decided to pay Franco a tear-jerking and indeed a heartbreaking tribute.
The tribute began with Jed Madela singing songs that broke our hearts. The tribute then proceeded with the Showtime Family giving messages to Franco.
Vice was the one who started it all. However, after just a few words, Vice Ganda had a break down live on television. Vice can’t handle the pain of losing Franco.
When he finally got back to his senses, Vice Ganda started to reminisce all the good memories that he had with Franco.
Vice Ganda was then followed by the members of Hashtags, Kid, Vito, Wilbert, Zeus, Paolo, Ronnie, and others. Just like Vice Ganda, Hashtags Kid, Ronnie, Bugoy, Zeus and Paolo had a breakdown.
In the end, Amy Perez led the prayer for Franco Hernandez.
The tribute ended with Vice Ganda telling the world that Franco’s only goal is to put a smile on people’s faces.
The netizens were in tears after watching the tribute. Read the tweets from the netizens below:
Despite that they are suffering from pain, the show must go on and they will continue the show to try and make the madlang people happy.
Before today’s live episode, It’s Showtime has already paid Franco a tribute. It’s Showtime made a video for Franco with the words, “We will miss you everyday Hashtag Franco, your Showtime Family Loves you so much! Till next time, Franco!”
