Bobbi Kristina Cries As Artists Honor Whitney Houston At Billboard

Bobbi Kristina was overwhelmed as “Sparkle” actress Jordin Sparks sung Whitney Houston’s hit “I Will Always Love You” at the 2012 Billboard Awards on Sunday night. Sparks was poised and deliberate as she belted the legendary tune that left Bobbi Kristina wiping away tears. The tribute to the fallen singer who tragically passed on February 11th began with an opening dialogue from comedian Whoopi Goldberg,

“I adored Whitney Houston. What all performers want and need and should get is love, and many of us here loved Whitney, and even if you’re one of those who didn’t show the love to Whitney, now is your chance, because tonight, that’s what we’re doing: We’re going to be giving Whitney the greatest love of all.”

John Legend also took the stage before Jordin to perform “Greatest Love.” After the performances Pat Houston and Bobbi took the stage to thank everyone. Pat said,

Bobbi Kristina added, “I just really want to say thank you to everyone who supported us through it all. Thank you so much for showing that much love, ’cause she deserved it. There will never be another one, ever. I thank you so much.”
