Bobby Brown Remembers Whitney Houston: "I Love Her Like I Love God"

Bobby Brown

Bobby Brown rejoined New Edition on their 30th anniversary tour in Maryland on Thursday night (Feb. 16). Before the group continued with their performance the grieving R&B crooner took time out to thank the fans and pay tribute to his late ex-wife Whitney Houston.

“I like to say thank you, period,” Brown told the crowd who were screaming Whitney’s name. “I’ma throw two up for Whitney, that’s my love.” He then added: “Life is life. You have to move on sometimes. I love her like I love God.”

Brown, looking dapper in his three-piece suit, seemed to be in good spirits as he stayed in step with his fellow New Edition members for a rendition of ‘Break Me Off.’ The singer will continue on the trek which stops in North Carolina Friday night (Feb. 17) before heading to New Jersey for Houston’s funeral on Saturday.

As we previously reported, Brown is expected to attend the service with his daughter Bobbi Kristina, much to the chagrin of the Houston family. Among the attendees at Saturday’s private, invitation-only service include Chaka Khan, Brandy, Aretha Franklin, Ray J, Stevie Wonder, Clive Davis, Kevin Costner and others.

A private burial service for Houston will be held on Sunday (Feb. 19) at Fairview Cemetery in Westfield, N.J. The pop icon will be laid to rest in a plot adjacent to her late father, John Russell Houston, who died in 2003.

We want to send our prayers and condolences to the Houston family.
