The mood was a somber one at the 43rd Annual NAACP Image Awards in Los Angeles on Friday. Much of the ceremony was colored by Whitney Houston's memory, which was honored in the form of numerous tributes.
Yolanda Adams delivered a stirring rendition of "I Love the Lord, He Made Me Cry," which she ended with "We love you, Nip." ("Nip" is Houston's nickname.)
Also highlighted during the evening was footage from the 1994 Image Awards, which depicted the late singer accepting an Image Award for outstanding female artist. In the clip, Denzel Washington is tasked with presenting the prize, and calls Houston an "artist of unparalleled stature."

Rev Al Sharpton looks on as Honorable Judge Greg Mathis speaks after receiving his award at the 2011 Triumph Awards
Tyler Perry has gotten plenty of criticism from some who feel his popular movies don't reflect well on the black community. But Al Sharpton says Perry's critics are "proper Negroes" who don't understand regular black folk.
Sharpton's National Action Network honored the filmmaker Wednesday night in New York City at its second annual Triumph Awards with its Chairman's Award. Sharpton lauded the creator of movies including "Madea's Family Reunion" and "Why Did I Get Married" saying he "never lost his authenticity."
Perry said he was grateful for the honor, and chastised those who have criticized his characters as stereotypes.
He said he has the "ear of the people" and his critics need to stop running from "our parents and our grandparents and our uncles."

The march was originally scheduled to coincide with August's opening of the MLK National Memorial, but postponed due to Hurricane Irene.
