After performing at a previously scheduled festival in Los Angeles on Saturday, Bobby Brown immediately boarded a return flight to Atlanta to rejoin the vigil for daughter Bobbi Kristina, according to a source.

Brown, 46, left his daughter’s bedside for the first time in nearly ten weeks to sing at the Soul Food Festival in Los Angeles. He first rushed to her side shortly after she was found unresponsive in her bathtub in her Georgia home Jan. 31.

During his set, in which he belted out a string of hits from “Roni” to “My Prerogative,” Brown took time to thank fans for standing by him during this trying time.

“I wanna thank all of y’all for coming out tonight, for supporting me and my family,” he said after his opening song. “Rough times are rough times. Hard times are hard times. I don’t know what the hell I’m going through right now, but I’m giving it to God.”

Brown’s wife, Alicia Etheredge-Brown, due in July with the couple’s second child, said the family was “doing as well as you’d expect.”

Bobbi Kristina, 22, Brown’s daughter with the late Whitney Houston, has been in a medically induced coma since she was discovered unconscious in the home she shared with her boyfriend, Nick Gordon.

Her family remains at her bedside, with her father making medical decisions for her.
