As fans know, no two singers have paid more homage to the late great Whitney Houston than ‘The Boy Is Mine’ co-stars Brandy & Monica. So, it would only be fitting that they would take to tonight’s stage to tribute their idol in what many will say came as the highlight of the 2012 BET Awards.
Kicking off with Monica’s soul-stirring rendition of ‘I Love the Lord’ followed by Brandy’s electric ‘I’m Your Baby Tonight’/‘I Wanna Dance With Somebody’ medley, the two divas blazed the stage like never before in Houston’s honor.
With excitement still at a high from the showing(s), Mo took to Twitter to share a snap of the two backstage. As ever, we at That Grape Juice salute Whitney and Monica/Brandy for being the reminders that there are still vocalists left who nurture their crafts without the assistance of studio magic! See their performances here.
