Kelly Rowland Breaks Down During ‘Dirty Laundry’ Performance (Video)

Kelly Rowland performed her personal single “Dirty Laundry” for opening night of her and Dream’s “Lights Out” tour last night in D.C., and from the looks of it, emotion is still raw for the singer, who broke down in tears midway through the song.

Perched on a stool underneath a spotlight and wearing only a tank and shorts, Rowland delivered the live version on the single, but the lyric about turning against her sister (Beyonce) at the hands of an abusive boyfriend is the straw that touched a nerve. The crowd supportivey cheered, and Kelly found the strength to finish the song like a true professional.
