Bobby: “I was in Mississippi performing and I got the call. Of course, I tried to get a flight. Tried to rent a jet. Whatever I had to do but it was impossible. So I knew the best thing that she would want me to do was perform. You know, we are performers. That’s what we did. That’s what we do and she would want the best for me.”
Booby on what he will miss most about Whitney:
Ellen: “What is it that you’ll miss the most about her?”
Bobby: “Her voice. I mean we get to hear it everyday but just to see her sing was amazing. Where she came from with it, was amazing. That’s what I’m going to miss.”
Ellen: “I got to host a couple of award shows. Grammys and couple of other things where she was performing and just the rehearsal alone.”
Bobby: “It will blow you away, right? She worked hard, played hard, lived hard, loved hard.”
Ellen: “She was a force.”
It's lovely for Bobby to remember Whitney in such a positive way and thoughtful of him to share his very personal memories for all her fans to remember. Rest in Peace Whitney.
