Bobby Brown – First Time Onstage Since Bobbi Kristina’s Death (VIDEO)

Exclusive Video

Bobby Brown returned to the stage Sunday night at the Hollywood Bowl … the first time since laying daughter Bobbi Kristina to rest.

Brown wasn’t on the bill. He came out dressed to the nines as Macy Gray’s surprise guest and they performed their duet “Real Love." The crowd cheered wildly for Bobby, but he kept the banter short and sweet saying, "Thank you for all your prayers, everybody." 

Brown’s often used music as an emotional support … even hitting the road while Bobbi Kristina was in the hospital. She passed away a month ago.
