Bobbi Kristina Brown Sings ....

She is the daughter of Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown. Her name is Bobbie Kristina. I know a lot of people will compare her to her mom, her grandmother, Cissy Houston, and her auntie Dionne Warwick.  In a recent video, Bobbi Kristina sings, "Nevermind I'll Find Someone Like You."  I must say as I watched it I could her a unique style in her voice that is much different than her parents.  I hope she goes far. I got to give her credit, she has an awesome voice. Check it out.
