Mariah Carey helped cap-off the 2012 BET Awards with a tribute to Whitney Houston. HipHopWired Carey started things off reminiscing about first hearing Houston’s music.
“The first time I heard Whitney’s voice, I was mesmerized like the rest of the world,” she said. “I was captivated by the power in her range and her unique ability to wrap a lyric in an emotion.”
Carey also spoke on seeing the 48-year-old for the last time, while overseas. “Even then folks were surprised to see us sitting next to each other, clearly enjoying each others’ company. I miss my friend, I miss hearing her voice in laughter, but we’ll always have the music,” she added, holding back tears.
The late singer was remembered by the likes of Monica , Brandy, and Houston’s mother, Cissy, all of whom took the stage. Cissy’s dedication to her only daughter made many in the audience teary-eyed, including Kanye West. Watch the video below: READ MORE
