It’s been one month since Bobbi Kristina Brown was laid to rest in a New Jersey cemetery, and people are still mourning the young singer’s tragic death. Tyler Perry, who has been close friends with the Brown and Houston families, shared a touching and emotional video tribute he made for the 22-year-old’s funeral.
“The Houston estate asked if I would share this tribute that I put together for Bobbi Kristina's private funeral,” Perry wrote on Facebook Friday. “On behalf of the Brown and Houston families, we would all like to thank you for your prayers and support.”
In the almost four-minute video, Perry shares a few words from Brown: “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 my story through words and this blessing of a powerful voice mom has given me.”
The video also shows several photos of Brown as a baby, posing with her parents, Bobby Brown and Whitney Houston, and then also as a young adult. As the pictures flash across the screen, Houston’s song “You Were Loved” plays in the background. The video tribute ends with the words, “Goodbye for now.”
Brown died at the age of 22 on July 26 in an Atlanta-area hospice, almost six months after she was found face-down and unconscious in a bathtub at her Roswell, Georgia, home. A funeral for Brown was held on Aug. 1, and she was buried next to Houston at a New Jersey cemetery on Aug. 3.
