Brandy describes her emotions upon learning of friend Whitney Houston's death: "I fell to the floor, in tears ... and had been crying for weeks, and months after that"

Coming up this evening at 9, Piers Morgan sits down for an honest and emotional face to face conversation with Brandy.

As the 33-year-old singer born Brandy Norwood has recently released her sixth studio album, tonight she opens up about the woman for whom the work honors, Whitney Houston.

With Brandy's CD entitled "Two Eleven," she explains that the numbers signify not only her own birthday (Brandy was born on 2.11.79,) but also the day on which Houston passed, February 11th of this year.

Having known the music icon since the pair worked together on the film "Cinderella" in 1997, Brandy surmises what it must have been like for Houston to have endured the loss of her iconic and powerful singing voice:

"I understand you know, because, I feel like when I don't have my instrument, I don't really have me," she tells Morgan. "Of course there's more to you than your voice. But, that's what you use to share, that's what you use to give. It's your purpose. It's what you were born to do ... It probably drove her insane."

Having admittedly lost touch with Houston during the star's final years, Brandy was in the hotel on the night the six-time Grammy Award winner died, and tonight she describes hearing the tragic news:

"I fell to the floor, in tears. And had been crying for weeks, and months after that," says Brandy. "It hit me. It just hit me in ways I can't even, explain."

Watch the clip, and listen to the interview, then tune in this evening as Brandy opens up further about her relationship with Houston and shares details about her newest musical production.

    Piers Morgan is Bill O'Rielly in drag – get out of town you bum. You are just an obnoxious Brit trying to be an American.

    Please keep up your efforts on gun control. You have completely gained my respect and support. We need to have honest discussions about this and call people on their comments when they are completely crazy. Thanks for all you do!

    Just channel surfing and I came across Morgan doing a stint with Jack Hanna, that guy with all the wild animals. It looks like Morgan is trying to curry some favor with the American public (we Americans are all saps for cuddly little creatures) after his anti-gun, anti-American spirit, tirade. It won't work Morgan. Get your skinny butt out of our country, you fop. ust another quick comment about the episode with Jack Hanna. Peirs was PETRIFIED of the animals, the coward. He kept on looking over at his producer with pleading eye to get him out of there.Is it any wonder this wimp is against guns? He probably wets his pants when he sees one.
