Gospel Diva Kim Burrell surprised birthday girl Brandy Norwood with an inspirational serenade last night during a private party held for the 35-year-old singer. Attended only by close friends and family, the celebration was hosted by Brandy’s brother Ray J and R&B singer Tyrese, who captured the spirit-filled moment on Instagram along with the following message:

During the song, Burrell reminds Brandy of how good  God has been to her throughout her 20 year career and the amazing life she has lived so far. An emotional Brandy, trying to hold back the tears, eventually breaks down and is comforted by her brother, mother and father.
