Brandy opened the show with energetic applause for her 2002 hit “What About Us?” She kept the hits coming with long-time favorites including “I Wanna Be Down,” “Baby,” and “The Boy is Mine.”
The recently engaged singer also performed a medley in tribute to her “idol,” the late Whitney Houston. The audience sang along with such Houston songs as “I Wanna Dance with Somebody,” “I’m Your Baby Tonight” and “How Will I Know.”
