Bobby Brown performs for first time since daughter’s hospitalization

Bobby Brown performed at a festival in Los Angeles on Saturday, his first public appearance since daughter Bobbi Kristina was hospitalized in January, TMZ reported.

According to TMZ, Brown appeared at the Soul Food Festival on Saturday, “(moving) the crowd to tears as he opened up about the hard time he’s going through.” The performer reportedly flew back to Atlanta immediately following the show.

Bobbi Kristina Brown, the offspring of Bobby Brown and the late Whitney Houston, was hospitalized on Jan. 31 after she was found unresponsive in a bathtub. Last month, she was moved from Emory hospital to a rehab facility.

According to TMZ, Bobby Brown signed a contract for Saturday’s performance prior to his daughter being hospitalized.
