Last night, good friend and fellow R&B singer Kelly Price hosted a pre-Grammy party “For The Love Of R&B, For The Love Of Whitney” in honor of the late iconic singer Whitney Houston in Hollywood.
In 2012, Whitney joined Kelly onstage during the same pre-Grammy party to sing “Yes Jesus Loves Me”, days before the legendary singer’s untimely death. Before kicking off the tribute party, Kelly stood before guests, urging everyone to send up prayers for Whitney’s daughter Bobbi Kristina, who is currently battling for her life at Atlanta’s Emory University Hospital.
She reportedly said,
“Bobbi Kristina is in the hospital and her condition is very serious. I will say this one thing and this one thing only: Please continue to pray for her as she fights for her life. She is a young woman who deserves a chance to live and to thrive and experience the greatness that is inside of her and come into her own,” she continued. “I will ask you all to say a prayer. If prayer is not your thing, send love. Send your love and well wishes to the entire family.”
Following her speech….
Kelly hit the stage alongside Faith Evans to perform their joint track, which Whitney was also featured on, “Heartbreak Hotel”. After their performance, the “As We Lay” singer encouraged everyone to speak positive about Whitney Houston and to keep praying for Bobbi Kris’ recovery. She said,
“Speak well of Whitney Houston. She deserves that from us. Keep her family in your prayers. Keep Bobbi Kristina in your prayers, if anyone can do it god can.”
