Just hours after the shocking death of his ex-wife Whitney Houston, the show went on for Bobby Brown on Saturday night. The R&B singer, 43, went ahead with a planned concert in Mississippi with his famed group New Edition as news hit that Houston had died at age 48 in her hotel room at the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills. After reportedly breaking down backstage pre-show, Brown (who shared daughter Bobbi Kristina, 18, with Houston) declined to join his bandmates for the opening song. According to a concertgoer, he then went onstage for the second song to massive cheers, singing “Hit Me Off” with gusto. At the end of another song, Brown shouted “I love you, Whitney!” and blew a kiss to the sky, looking visibly teary.
I hate to be the turd in the punch bowl, but was anyone else surprised by this article? I was shocked – I can’t believe New Edition is still performing and people are going to see them. I know you’re upset Bobby. I would be upset too if the woman I did drugs and beat up died. Leave it out bro.
