BOBBI KRISTINA, DAUGHTER OF WHITNEY HOUSTON DIES AGED 22
Monday 27th July 2015
Bobbi Kristina Brown, daughter of late singer Whitney Houston, has died aged 22, a family representative has said.
Kristen Foster said she passed away on Sunday surrounded by her family and was "finally at peace in the arms of God".
Brown was discovered face down and unresponsive in a bathtub on 31 January and placed in a medically induced coma. She never regained consciousness.
She was moved to a hospice in the city of Duluth, Georgia, a month ago after her condition deteriorated.
Brown was the only daughter of Houston and R&B singer Bobby Brown.
Houston was found dead in a hotel bath in Los Angeles in 2012.
The family posted a photo of Houston with Bobbi Kristina as a baby on whitneyhouston.com with the following message:
"It is hard to say goodbye. On Sunday, July 26, Bobbi Kristina Brown made her transition peacefully. The family thanks everyone for their loving thoughts and prayers. As Bobbi Kristina would say: 'The wind is behind me and the sun is in my face.'"
"Bobbi Kristina Brown passed away July 26 2015, surrounded by her family," Ms Foster added.
"She is finally at peace in the arms of God. We want to again thank everyone for their tremendous amount of love and support during these last few months."
Singer Dionne Warwick, Whitney Houston's cousin, described Bobbi Kristina as "a sweetheart. She will be missed, that's for sure. She was a good girl. She was a good little girl. She really was.” (Click here for the full story courtesy of BBC News)
We are deeply saddened to hear the passing of Bobbi Kristina Brown. She was the daughter of one of the most prolific singers of our time, the late Whitney Houston. Bobbi’s untimely death is a reminder that life is a gift and should always be cherished. We should encourage our youth to become the best they can. To mature and grow older is a privilege that is often denied to many. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Houston and Brown family.
