Kristina Bobby still hears from mum

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Whitney Houston's daughter on Sunday said she still hears her mom encouraging her "keep moving, keep going," and the pop star's sister-in-law revealed new details of the day Houston died in their first public interviews since the singer's death.

Bobbi Kristina Brown, 19, told talk show host Oprah Winfrey that she was "doing okay ... I'm doing as good as I possibly can" since her mother was found lifeless in the bathtub of her room at the Beverly Hills Hilton hotel on February 11, the eve of the music industry's Grammy Awards.

"I can hear her voice, you know, and spirit talking to me, telling me, you know, 'keep moving baby. I'm right here. I got you' ... she's always with me. I can always feel her," Bobbi Kristina Brown told Winfrey.

"I feel her pass through me all the time," said Brown, whose father is singer Bobby Brown.

Houston and Brown's only daughter said she feels her mom's presence in the house they shared in Atlanta. The "lights turn on and off, and I go 'mom, what're you doing?' ... I can still laugh with her. I can sit there and I can still talk with her."

Houston was 48-years-old when she died. She rose to fame in the 1980s and enjoyed a long career that peaked with her 1992 hit "I Will Always Love You" from the movie "The Bodyguard."

But her life was plagued by a troubled marriage to singer Brown, and she had previously admitted to heavy use of cocaine, marijuana, alcohol and prescription pills.

Officials have said prescription drugs were found in the hotel room where she died, but a cause of death is still pending toxicology tests which are expected later this month.
