Megastar Sharon Cuneta couldn’t help but turn emotional as she offered a tribute to Cherie Gil during a concert in Adelaide, Australia.
For the first time since Cherie passed away two months ago, Sharon performed the song “Bituing Walang Ningning” in honor of her late friend.
Sharon performed the song in front of a huge crowd gathered at the Woodville Town Hall in Adelaide, Australia.
“First time to sing ‘Bituing Walang Ningning’ in a concert since my Cherie passed two months and eleven days ago,” Sharon wrote in the caption of her post.
The Megastar admitted that she didn’t know how she would perform the song at that moment, but knew Cherie was there with her.
“Di ko alam paano ko kakantahin kagabi…but I know somehow that she was right beside me,” she said.

Released in 1985, Bituing Walang Ningning is one of the most iconic films in Philippine cinema. It starred Sharon Cuneta and Cherie Gil. The film also gave birth to the memorable line “You’re nothing but a trying hard copycat!”
Cherie Gil passed away last August 5 following a battle with a rare form of endometrial cancer.
