As reported here, knockout beauty Kelly Rowland was one of many tapped to attend and perform at the Keep Memory Alive foundation’s Power of Love Gala last night, celebrating the 70th birthday of boxing legend Muhammad Ali. While singer John Legend and others also hit the stage, Rowland sought to honor her fallen idol Whitney Houston and Ali by lending a stirring rendition of ‘The Greatest Love of All’.
Accompanied by R&B legend Stevie Wonder, fans may remember that Rowland’s choice of song was that of Whitney’s just 20 years earlier at Ali’s 50th birthday celebration. We’ve shown you pictures from the star-studded event, now catch Rowland singing ‘The Greatest’ for the greatest after the jump:
Simply magical. From the instrumental accompaniment to Rowland’s stirring vocal, Miss Kelly’s performance was certainly a knockout. The tribute follows air of Rowland’s tribute to another pop vocal icon Mariah Carey. See that here.
