He headlined the Power 105.1's Powerhouse '09 concert in New Jersey last night, which also featured The-Dream, Fabolous, Day26, Trey Songz, Keri Hilson and Mario.
"Chris is a performer. In spite of all that's been going on in his personal life, he's gonna get out there and perform," Songz said before Brown hit the stage. "I'm confident in that. As a friend, as a brother, I wanna see him go out there and shut it down. I believe everybody deserves a second chance. In God's eyes, none of us are perfect, and he forgives us every day. He deserves a second chance, and I commend Power 105 for giving it to him."
According to MTV, the crowd went wild when Chris took the stage, wearing a Michael Jackson-inspired red thriller jacket. He began his performance with his new song "I Can Transform Ya."
He also told the crowd, "Despite my past and stuff like that, I appreciate all of y'all.”
