Tyler Perry's Tribute to Bobbi Kristina

Family asks media mogul to share private funeral video.

Published September 5, 2015

Long lives the legacy of The Voice.

Tyler Perry took to his Faceboook page Friday to post a touching tribute to Bobbi Kristina Brown. "On behalf of the Brown and Houston families, we would all like to thank you for your prayers and support," he captioned the nearly 4-minute clip.

Perry originally created the video for her private funeral service. Now, more than 12 million likes have come in, in less than a day.

"A few words from Krissi..." it starts. "I hope you feel my love, pain, beauty, agony at times, blessings all the time. No one understands me. And I don't expect them to, but I will try to spread my love and story through words and this blessing of a powerful voice mom has given me."


The tribute continues with pictures of Bobbi Kristina through the years, some with her famed parents Bobby Brown and Whitney Houston. Houston's "You Were Loved" from The Preacher's Wife soundtrack plays in the background.

Bobbi Kristina had a blossoming career, when she was found unconscious in a bathtub in January of this year. In 2012, the reality starlet was cast in Tyler Perry's For Better or Worse, and she was just beginning to step into her own as a singer.

She passed away in July at 22-years-old.
