Janet Jackson weeps for hurricane Harvey victims
Janet Jackson broke down and cried in front of her fans in Houston, Saturday, during a heartfelt performance that left many wondering: why? Jackson, who is in the midst of a divorce from estranged husband Wissam Al Mana, father of her newborn son, Eissa, struggled to get through the lyrics to the defiant tune.
Fans at the gig seemed concerned for Janet as a pause in the song caused her to bend over and sob momentarily, before she straightened up and said, 'This is me'.
The singer opened the tour in Louisiana on Thursday night (07Sep17) and delighted audiences with some of her classic tracks including Nasty, Alright, Control, When I Think of You, All for You, and Rhythm Nation.
Her upbeat hits are still on the set list, including Billboard Hot 100 #1 tracks such as All For You, Miss You Much and That's The Way Love Goes.
"Please, if you can, try and understand that it's important that I do this now", Jackson explained.
Jackson welcomed Eissa on January 3 with her now estranged husband Wissam Al Mana.
She says she will keep her commitment to play the concert, but doesn't want to just hit the stage, do the show and hop back on the tour bus.
The singer previously revealed What About, which featured on her 1997 album The Velvet Rope, was inspired by aspects of her personal life, and that of her ex-husband Rene Elizondo, Jr., who she was married to from 1991 to 2000.
Janet Jackson drew lots of attention from the entire crowd while performing in Houston, Texas.
She did not perform "What About" at the concerts she gave before her maternity hiatus.
She promised the flood-ravaged city of Houston "something special" on Wednesday.
