Yolanda Adams Pays Tribute to Whitney Houston at NAACP Image Awards

Yolanda Adams

Whitney Houston’s presence was felt at the 43rd NAACP Image Awards held at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles on Friday night. Following a montage of the pop icon’s achievements, Yolanda Adams performed the gospel song “I Love the Lord, He Heard My Cry.” “We love you, Nip,” said Adams, in reference to the singer’s childhood nickname.

Jennifer Hudson and Ne-Yo honored George Lucas by dueting on “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough,” while the filmmaker sang along in the audience.

Looking regal in red, Jill Scott had everyone counting their blessings as she performed the uplifting “So Blessed” off her album The Light of the Sun.

In the music categories, winners included Diggy Simmons (Outstanding New Artist), Cee Lo Green (Outstanding Male Artist), Jill Scott (Outstanding Female Artist), and Jennifer Hudson (Outstanding Album, Outstanding Music Video).

    Very very good choice I loved when Whitney song I love the Lord! Yoalnda is one of a handful of singers comparable to Whitney. I didn’t liked that she screamed so much but those last notes at the end her voice is truly amazing and glad she is honoring her fellow gifted singer.
