The 43-year-old singer, who was totally distraught over his ex-wife’s death, cried during his performance, saying ‘I love you, Whitney,’ as he blew kisses to the sky.
An emotional Brown told the audience:
“First of all, I want to tell you that I love you all. Second, I would like to say, I love you Whitney. The hardest thing for me to do is to come on this stage.
