The most touching moment that had even the toughest of rappers shedding tears last night at the 2012 BET Awards had to be Whitney Houston’s Tribute. With touching words from Mariah Carey and passionate performances by Monica, Brandy and Chaka Khan, the tribute stirred up emotions for many in the audience.
The most heart felt eulogy, however, had to be from Houston’s mother, Cissy Houston. Dedicating her rendition of “Bridge Over Troubled Water” to her late daughter, Cissy moved the entire room with her performance that exuded the strength and resiliency that only a strong black mother could have. Her performance even made Beyonce, Jay-Z and Kanye West shed a few tears.
