Bobby Brown left his daughter Bobbi Kristina’s bedside (and was extremely upset about doing so we hear) in ordee to honor his contractual obligations and hit the stage at a scheduled performance. His pregnant wife Alicia Etheredge was right by his side. Peep pics and video of Bobby’s first public appearance since his daughter’s hospitalization inside….

As the old saying goes, the show must go on.

While his daughter Bobbi Kristina lays in a medically induced coma in an Atlanta hospital, Bobby Brown left her side for the first time for a scheduled performance yesterday.

Bobby was tapped to hit the stage at the Soul Food Festival at Exposition Park in L.A. His wife Alicia Etheredge (almost 5 months pregnant) and five-year-old son Cassius was also by his side during the event:

Aww…look at the daddy-son duo “twinning.” Too cute.

During the festival, Bobby had his BBQ sauce on hand to sell to festival goers. Smart idea.

His wife (and her growing baby bump) got to work, helping to sell some BBQ sauce bottles during the food festival:

Soon after, Bobby hit the stage for his performance:

While on stage, the former New Edition singer got emotional as he touched on the hardship he’s currently going through. His 21-year-old daughter has been in a coma for 2.5 months after she was found unresponsive in a bathtub in her Georgia home.

Peep the clip below of Bobby touching on his unfotunate situation:

Following his performance, Bobby says he’s catching the first flight back to Atlanta to be by his daughter’s side.
