Alicia Keys Performs at Whitney Houston Funeral [Video]

by at . Comments

"She would call you for no reason at all, but just to say 'hi.' She was a beautiful human being - really caring, beautiful, thoughtful."

So said Alicia Keys today, holding back tears, prior to breaking into a rendition of "Send Me An Angel" in honor of the late Whitney Houston. Watch for yourself now:

Stevie Wonder also performed at the memorial, while Houston's former co-star in The Bodyguard was applauded for his beautiful tribute to the part-time actress.

"To you, Bobbi Kristina, and to all those young girls who are dreaming that dream, thinking that maybe they aren't good enough, I think Whitney would tell you, guard your bodies," said Kevin Costner. "And guard the precious miracle of your own life. Then sing your hearts out.

"Off you go Whitney, off you go. Escorted by an army of angels to your heavenly Father. When you sing before him, don't you worry. You'll be good enough."

@ Reed's comment: Lord God Almighty, Bobby Brown is a dickhead. The man has no shame whatsoever. Whitney's family was right in not being happy that he brought a bunch of people with him to the memorial service instead of 3 as was reserved for him. How can people get so worked up over a POS like him?! It's true young girls can make really big mistakes when it comes to men. He had a really bad influence on her.

Kevin C. Did well with his words for Whitney. Meanwhile - Her ex husband gives a Shout out to her and says he loves her like God! Then - He grabs his Dick and starts dancing. I hope somewhere a young girl can see how Brown was a terrible mistake for her. Houston- which was probably the greatest entertainer in the last 50 years who also could have had ANY man she wanted - She chose this piece of shit Brown! Who has never been nothing more than a Jive Ass Punk from the start! You can bet her Family had seen these best and worst of this Bucket of Shit for years and nobody in their right mind would have wanted him there!

The most significant thing through Whitney's death was that the world was taken to church!

If it is true Whitney's ex husband was treated to this kind of disrespect, on this day, shame on whatever family member is responsible. It is a time to put differences aside. It smacks of the type of family dysfunction that may have contributed to Whitney's issues--ones she had long before she met Mr. Brown.
