Two of Whitney Houston's mentees, singers Brandy and Monica, are doing their part to assure that the musical legacy of the pop icon will live on forever. In a recent performance at V103's Conversation/Soul Session in Atlanta, the pair took some time out of their show to honor Whitney, reports The Rap Up.
Monica performed her rendition of Whitney's 1985 hit "You Give Good Love," while Brandy, who previously stated that she wouldn't be doing any Houston tributes anytime soon, couldn't resist the temptation to sing Houston's mega hit "I Will Always Love You." Though B-Rocka could not make it through the entire song before emotions took over, the frenzied crowd loved the abbreviated rendition.
Atlanta-based artists T.I., Tiny, Kandi, Burruss, Toya Write, Polow Da Don and Jazze Pha watched on as Brandy became too overwhelmed with emotion. Monica then rejoined Brandy to end the evening with a performance of their two duets, 1998's "The Boy Is Mine" and their latest, "It All Belongs to Me."
As previously reported, Brandy has also honored Houston by naming her upcoming album Two Eleven, which represents both Brandy's birthday (February 11) and the day Whitney Houston passed away.
