Pop icon Pink has paid tribute to her late father—after it was announced he passed away from cancer on Thursday.

The Just Like a Pill singer confirmed the sad news with a series of photos on Instagram.

The photos show Pink and her father Jim Moore dancing—with the first black and white picture of her when she was just a little girl. She titled the pictures 'Til forever'.

Just two days ago the singer had also posted a picture of her and Jim singing together on stage.

Thousands of her fans have rallied around the singer on Instagram, liking her pictures and leaving heartfelt messages. 

The first black and white picture shows Pink, as a child, looking into the camera, while her father, a war veteran, looks down at her. The next is of father and daughter dancing at Pink's wedding in 2006.

The pop star also titled another Instagram picture, which showed them singing I Have Seen the Rain in New York City in 2006 together, 'Daddy-Sir'. 

The singer revealed her fathers struggle with prostate cancer last July posting a picture of him in hospital, with the caption: “just finished his second round of chemo for prostate cancer."

“Here he is, my Dad, scared and in pain sitting with the love of his life, our Grace, and what’s he doing???? Smiling. Cracking jokes. Making everyone else feel better.

“He’s already back to his old tricks ten hours later, talking about napalm and snipers and viruses and blood puddles…. oh, Dad. How amazing it is to watch you whistle through Hell.”

Pink recently voiced her support for the Norwegian women's volleyball team after they were penalized for breaching uniform rules at the European Beach Handball Championships last week, even offering to pay their controversial fine. 

The Cover Me in Sunshine singer took to Twitter to show solidarity: "I’m VERY proud of the Norwegian female beach handball team FOR PROTESTING THE VERY SEXIST RULES ABOUT THEIR 'uniform'," the So What singer tweeted to her 31.6m followers. "The European handball federation SHOULD BE FINED FOR SEXISM."

She even offered to cover the cost of the fine, adding, "Good on ya, ladies. I’ll be happy to pay your fines for you. Keep it up."
