John legend‘s first time on stage since he and Chrissy TeigenThe third child of death – moments after a premature birth – was as touching and heartbreaking as you’d expect.
John performed “Never Break” Wednesday night for the Billboard Music Awards at the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles. He lovingly dedicated the performance to Chrissy, after the host Kelly Clarkson sent love to her and John.
Kelly explained how John and Chrissy “have this warm way of inviting us into their world, the ups and downs,” then said that this performance was perhaps her favorite of the night. It’s easy to see why after seeing him play this moving ballad.
John and Chrissy shared the heartbreaking news last month that the baby they named Jack had spent due to complications which included severe bleeding from the placenta.
The couple had been very open with fans, sharing everything from the time doctors put Chrissy to bed, and even once she had to be admitted. to the hospital to receive blood transfusions.
Since the heartbreaking news was revealed, the couple have taken the time to cry as a family … with their children, Luna and Miles. No one would have blamed John if he skipped the Billboard performance, and the fact that he did was a powerful tribute to Jack.
As Chrissy said last month, “We will cry, we will cry. But we’ll kiss and love each other harder and get through. “
