*Bobbi Kristina Brown, 19, took the stage at Sunday’s Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas to thank fans for the outpouring of support since the Feb. 11 death of her mother Whitney Houston in Beverly Hills.
The late singer was the posthumous recipient of the Millennium Award, with Whoopi Goldberg introducing two tribute performances: John Legend, who sang “The Greatest Love of All,” and Houston’s “Sparkle” costar Jordin Sparks, who sang “I Will Always Love You.”
Bobbi Kristina cried during Sparks’ cover of her mother’s biggest hit. But she had gotten herself together by the time she and her aunt, Patricia Houston, ascended to the stage to accept the award.
“I just want to say thank you to everyone who’s supported us through it all. Not just from when it was good, but when it was bad, too. Just everything,” said Bobbi Kristina, who famously struggled in the wake of her mother’s shocking passing. “Thank you so much for showing that much love, because she deserved it. She did. I’m just blessed to have been in such an incredible woman’s life. There will never be another one, never, and I thank you, all of you, fans, everyone, thank you so much.”
