Whitney Houston sang her last ever song when she joined Kelly Price on stage on Thursday night – just two days before her untimely death.
Whitney Houston, who died on Saturday at the age of 48, gave an impromptu performance at the Kelly Price & Friends Unplugged: For The Love of R&B fete at Tru Hollywood earlier this week.
The star was not expected to perform at the event, but was captured on camera as she sang the song Yes, Jesus Loves Me.
Before the duet, Kelly Price, 38, was caught on video discussing how Whitney Houston had influenced her career with the audience.
Kelly Price said: “[Whitney] pushed me to sing to my limit’ before addressing the recently deceased songbird directly.”
“You are a class act, you are an icon,” she added.
Kelly Price was overcome with emotion when Whitney Houston then joined her on stage. They shared a tight embrace before Whitney Houston began belting out the soulful tune.
Whitney Houston managed to get through the performance successfully, though it has been reported that she was acting erratically in the days leading up to her death.
Though she was meant to attend Clive Davis’ pre-Grammy bash at the Beverly Hilton Hotel last night, she was found dead in the same hotel Saturday afternoon.
An emergency crew tried to resuscitate the singer in her room, but she was pronounced dead at 3:55 p.m.
Kelly Price, who attended last night’s Grammy Awards ceremony, broke down on the red carpet while discussing Whitney Houston’s final performance.
She said: “I was having a pre-Grammy party for the nominations [sic].
“I invited Whitney to come…
“We had a great time Thursday night. She came out. We hung out. We danced…
“I wasn’t expecting her to sing….She just walked up on the stage. We embraced each other and she said: <<Give me the mike…>>”
Kelly Price added: “Singing with Whitney has always been to me just an honor.”
The artist also talked about the moment she found out Whitney Houston was dead.
Kelly Price said: “In my heart I was praying it was an internet hoax…and to realize it wasn’t I just don’t know how to explain it.”
Countless other musicians and celebrities have come out last night to celebrate Whitney Houston’s life.
Jennifer Hudson sang a medley of Whitney Houston’s favorite hits in her honor.
One person who wasn’t at last night’s ceremony was Whitney Houston’s daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown.
Bobbi Kristina Brown, 18, was rushed to the hospital once last night and again this morning.
According to TMZ.com, her family members fear that Bobbi Kristina is suicidal.
The site has been told that Bobbi Kristina was “hysterical, exhausted and inconsolable” and that “the family believes she might try and take her own life”.
Her loved ones are reportedly considering rehab as an option.
Bobbi Kristina got into an altercation with police officers last night when she wasn’t allowed to see her mother’s body.
