With her heart still heavy, Ashanti paid homage to her idol Whitney Houston with a stirring performance on “Good Morning America.” The R&B singer covered Houston’s classic “I Have Nothing,” which she has performed live before, and tweeted about the loss of the late legend.
“I still can not believe we have lost one of the most, powerful, soulful, soothing and classic voices of our time,” wrote Ashanti. “Her beauty, strength and poise touched millions around the world. She paved they way for women such as myself and her music brought generations together. Every little girl sang a Whitney Houston song. Having the honor of her being in my video and being the huge icon that she was, she always seemed like your favorite aunty. My heart goes out to her daughter and family. RIP the Amazing Whitney Houston.”
She also spoke with host Robin Roberts and performed her new single “The Woman You Love.”
