Like countless other lovebirds, Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown spent a cozy Valentine's Day in heavy romance mode. The singers were spotted at the Ritz-Carlton Lodge at Reynolds Plantation in Greensboro over the long holiday weekend.
"It's Buckhead!" belter Melanie Massell and her trio were the featured entertainment Sunday night in the lodge lobby. During a break, Massell felt someone touch her arm and whisper, "You have a wonderful voice." Seconds later, after the admiring fan had walked away, Massell said her brain processed that it was Houston.
"Both Whitney and Bobby took the time to compliment us," Massell told Buzz Wednesday. "It was extremely sweet of them."
The vocalist and Brown alternated their attentions between Massell's set of love song standards, including "At Last," "Fly Me to the Moon" and "The Way You Look Tonight," and the live Grammys telecast on the lobby bar's television.
Massell and company contemplated sliding a swing version of Brown's hit single "My Prerogative" into their set but ultimately nixed the idea.
"We decided to stick with what we do best," Massell said, laughing. "I have a decent range, but with Whitney Houston in the room, well, let's just say I decided to save myself the embarrassment!"
The celebrity couple also spent Monday at the luxury getaway on Lake Oconee.
