Bobbi Kristina Brown accepted an award for her late mother, Whitney Houston, at Sunday's Billboard Music Awards, telling the crowd she had been "blessed to have been in such an incredible woman's life."
Whitney Houston was given the Billboard Millennium Award, acknowledging her career achievements. Beyonce Knowles was the first recipient of the Millennium Award, in 2011.
John Legend and Jordin Sparks, Houston's co-star in the upcoming remake of "Sparkle," performed Houston's tunes as a tribute to the late singer.
Houston died in February. Brown accepted her mother's award with her aunt, Pat Houston, by her side.

"I just really want to say thank you, to everyone who supported us through it all, not just from when it was good, but when it was bad, too," Brown said. "Thank you so much for showing that much love, because she deserved it.
"I'm just blessed to have been in such an incredible woman's life," she continued. "There will never be another one. Ever."
Another music star, Bee Gees brother Robin Gibb, was also honored during the Billboard Awards. Guests observed a moment of silence for Gibb, who died on Sunday after a battle with liver and colon cancer.
Cee-Lo Green and Natasha Bedingfield also performed tributes to Beastie Boy Adam Yauch and disco queen Donna Summer.
