Hats off to BET for this beautiful tribute to Whitney Houston. Her mother, Cissy Houston, performing "Bridge Over Troubled Waters" brought me to tears (and quite a few audience members as well), but Monica's performance of "I Love the Lord" also stirred me.
Brandy gave an electric rendition of "I'm Your Baby Tonight" and "I Wanna Dance with Somebody," and I'm always happy to see Chaka Khan. She gave her all to "I'm Every Woman," a song that both she and Whitney recorded.
I'm late discussing the show because I didn't get to see it until recently, long after its first airing. There were many stellar performances and touching moments. When Maze Featuring Frankie Beverly received a lifetime achievement award, I was riveted to the television. So deserved. And when Frankie sang "We Are One," it struck me as a very spiritual moment.
