"I've been waiting to sing one of her songs since she passed; I'm a huge Whitney Houston fan," Kelly told the screaming crowd, before introducing her old friend Tamyra as "one of the most amazing singers I have heard, ever."
"It's such a shame, man," Kelly said after their duet. "Such a frickin' awesome, talented person, [dead] at 48. That's so sad. But we can remember [Whitney] with her awesome music."
Which is exactly what Kelly and Tamyra did at the Fox Theater--wonderfully. Whitney would be very proud.
