As a friend of Whitney Houston and her family, Tyler Perry was a source of support for the family during Bobbi Kristina Brown's last days. On Friday, the media mogul showed how far his support extended when he released a tribute video he made in honor of Bobbi Kristina.

"The Houston estate asked if I would share this tribute that I put together for Bobbi Kristina's private funeral," Perry wrote on Facebook. "On behalf of the Brown and Houston families, we would all like to thank you for your prayers and support. God bless."
The heartfelt, three-and-a-half minute clip, titled "A Celebration of Our Princess," starts with "a few words from Krissi."
"I hope you feel my love, pain, beauty, agony at times, blessings all the time," the quote reads. "No one understands me. And I don't expect them to, but I will try to spread my love and my story through words and this blessing of a powerful voice mom has given me."
The video takes the viewer on a journey through Bobbi Kristina's life via a montage of still pictures that scroll by while Whitney Houston's "You Were Loved" plays in the background.
The tribute fades out on Whitney's final note of the ballad and a photo of Bobbi Kristina blowing a kiss with the caption, "Goodbye for now."
The intimate service for Bobbi Kristina, held at the St. James United Methodist Church in Alpharetta, Georgia, included loving tributes from her family and performances from Cissy Houston and Monica. For details on the emotional funeral, watch the video below.
