bobby brown at soulfood festival1a

*As we reported, because of contractual commitments, Bobby Brown was forced to leave the bedside of his daughter Bobbi Kristina in Atlanta, to perform last night at the SoulFood Festival in Los Angeles and needless to say it was an emotional experience for him and the audience when he spoke about what he and his daughter is dealing with.

“I dunno what the hell I am going through right now, but I am giving it to God and letting him deal with it.”

Bobby said there was never any question about him fulfilling his obligation to appear at the festival. As you know, his daughter, Bobbi Kristina, lay in an Atlanta hospital, clinging to life. It’s been 2 1/2 months since Bobbi Kristina was rushed to a hospital after she was found submerged in a bathtub.

He shied away from talking in detail about Bobbi Kristina, but instead admitted these were “rough times.”

In the meantime, the 46-year-old singer was shown a lot of love as he took to the stage to perform hits like “Don’t Be Cruel” and “On Our Own.”

According to the Daily Mail, after his long introduction, Bobby, looking tired from performing dance moves, choked up as he said:

“I must tell y’all. This feels really, really really good. I want to thank all of y’all for coming out tonight to support me and my family. Rough times are rough times, hard times are hard times I dunno what the hell I am going through right now, but I am giving it to God and letting him deal with it.”

He added: ‘”There is only one thing I ask of you all tonight and that is enjoy yourselves.”

Oh yeah, he took the time to plug his barbeque sauce. And why not?

“Listen I have been doing a lot of things and been working on a lot of projects from ‘Real Husbands of Hollywood’ to my own stuff, to my new album, to my New Edition to Heads Of States, and I have been working on my food line. Actually you all can get some food right there, in my booth.

‘”I will over there in a little bit later, if you want to buy some barbecue sauce, seasonings, chicken and a couple of sausages. I don’t know what my wife is cooking – whatever it, is is good. You have got to get the seasoning, because the seasoning is off the chain, I must let you know.”

TMZ reports that after the show, Bobby went right to the airport to return to Atlanta … and Bobbi Kristina
