WATCH: Bobbi Kristina's friend reveals how her final days played out

2015-07-29 21:00

Los Angeles - Whitney Houston's music was repeatedly played to Bobbi Kristina Brown while she was in a coma.

The 22-year-old aspiring singer passed away on Sunday, almost six months after she was found unresponsive in her bath, and her loved ones felt her late mother was always in the room with them.

Family friend Wanda Shelley said: "I played her mom's music.

"I feel like her mom has been there the whole time."

Wanda - who became close to the family when she worked as executive producer on Being Bobby Brown - and Bobbi's other friends and family members were by her bedside round-the-clock, and a typical day involved reading from the Bible, playing music, and giving her leg rubs with coconut oil.

Speaking of Bobbi's last moments, she told Entertainment Tonight: "We were a core team to make sure she was never alone.

"We were in hospice that day, reading to her, singing to her, doing things we would normally do."

Bobbi's funeral will take place on Saturday and Wanda is devastated at the thought of saying goodbye.

She said: "Honestly, that's pretty unimaginable to me. I keep asking myself, 'How'd we get here?' "

The producer also expressed her sympathies for New Edition singer Bobby.

She said:"It's definitely hard on Bobby. That's his daughter. My heart went out to him, he was crying for his daughter."
