Ne-Yo & Compound Entertainment hosted their annual pre-Grammy Midnight Brunch last night in L.A. But this one was different as it turned into a Whitney Houston tribute party. And tons of celebs came out to support. Pics and details inside...
Ne-Yo made his somber arrival with girlfriend Monyetta to Hollywood hotspot Supper Club last night. Partygoers had learned earlier of Whitney Houston's untimely death, but they kept the festivities going in her honor:
Good friends Estelle, actress Tika Sumpter and many more celebrated Houston's legacy by dancing to her hit songs spun by DJ MOS, while toasting shots of Malibu Red.
Brandy (who was presented with a cake as it was her 33rd birthday), her new boyfriend, and Whitney's close friend Ray-J even made a brief appearance after leaving Clive Davis' party. She even got serenaded with a birthday song by Marsha Ambrosius. Singer Miguel also did a special surprise live performance for guests.
Both Estelle and Tika rocked cute bright looks for the occasion.
A "Girlfriends" reunion! Toni Childs & Joan Clayton (Jill Marie Jones & Tracee Ellis Ross) were spotted posing it up together. We miss these two! But is that an Addidas track jacket Jill?
Ne-Yo's girlfriend and children's mother Monyetta Shaw was there chillin' with her friends.
KeKe Palmer went hot pink on the carpet.
Director Chris Robinson--who does plenty of Ne-Yo's videos--came out to support.
