Brandy

Too Emotional to Sing

Whitney Houston Songs

3/3/2012 7:28 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0303_brandy_video_tmz
Brandy took the stage in Los Angeles last night, and while some in the house were expecting her to perform a few Whitney Houston songs, decided against it  ... saying it would have made her "an emotional wreck."

Performing at The Factory in Los Angeles, Brandy made her first appearance since Houston's passing and dedicated the song "Right Here (Departed)" in her honor.

Brandy and Whitney starred together back in a 1997 TV remake of "Cinderella," and her brother Ray J dated Whitney on and off for several years.

God she is not easy on the eyes...look at those nostrils. I wonder if she gets emotional about that mother that she killed by talking on her cell and not paying attention to the road.

Black Becky. What exactly are you looking at - Brandy hard on the eyes? I'm certain you wish you looked as good as Brandy. Also, you need to get your facts together regarding the auto. "accident" that killed "that mother." Perhaps, if "that mother" had not smoked marijuana and rear-ended another motorist's car she would still be alive today. Talking on a cell phone was not illegal in LA - smoking marijuana was.

Some of you people are really stupid. Having nothing better to do than to pass judgment on another is not a good look. Is Brandy suppose to bury her head in the sand because she was involved in an auto. accident which she wasn't found at fault for. The victim caused the accident - she was high, Brandy was not.

Ray J was as much Whitney's drug dealer of convenience as he was her "boyfriend". When you consider that he made a name for himself by making a sex tape with OJ Simpson's lawyer's daughter. It is easy to see him for the trash that he is.

TMZ has the meanest, nastiest comments I have ever seen how can you pass judgment on someone that was in a car ACCIDENT and killed someone it was an ACCIDENT she didn't go OUT trying to kill someone...You people are SAD SAD SAD.

I know it was tough for Brandy to sing any of Whitney songs being that they were close friends.

RIP Whitney

Let's try KINDNESS,LOVE,RESPECT & PEACE on earth it makes for a better world to live!!!!!

Brandy I'm sure Aboudihaj family knows what you're going through...

The accident happened at 10:30 a.m. on Dec. 30, 2006, on the 405 Freeway in Los Angeles. Brandy was driving her 2007 Land Rover at 65 mph and did not notice that cars in front of her had slowed considerably, law enforcement sources told TMZ.

Brandy's vehicle struck a 2005 Toyota, according to TMZ. The Toyota then hit a 1989 Toyota. The 2005 Toyota then slid sideways and hit the center divider. As the 2005 Toyota came to a halt, it was struck by a 1988 Acura.

The driver of the 2005 Toyota, Awatef Aboudihaj, was taken to Holy Cross Hospital in critical condition and she died the next day. Aboudihaj, a 38-year-old married mother of one, was a Los Angeles resident.

I think Brandy must have some serious guilt issues. First, she caused the death of a woman in an automobile accident. Then her brother is probably an accomplice in the death of one of the great American treasures.

Celebrities Suck    

Brandy is a celebrity which we all knows that celebrity justice exist. She got away with that deadly accident. She caused this accident, regardless of whatever facts you all believe in. Reminds me of an accident that took place in Mexico another celebrity driving. Her name is Ana Bárbara she was involved in a car accident in Cancún, Mexico, that left a 79-year-old woman dead; the incident sparked a media circus. Authorities arrested Ana Bárbara's driver (bodyguard and family friend). Eyewitnesses, however, told the victim's family that it was Ana Bárbara who was driving. She denied the accusations and any wrongdoing. The area where the accident took place was a busy area and Eyewitnesses saw her on the drivers seat. Eyewitnessessaw her switching seats with her body guard, then she ran out of her car and police found her blocks away with out shoes. Why run from a scene where you supposedly weren't driving? Guilt!
