"I love you so much," Janet Jackson said, with tears streaming down her face.
It was the debut performance of her Unbreakable tour in Vancouver on Monday. The singer was visibly overcome with so much emotion and pure love for the crowd.
"So much, so much," she continued.
"And I've missed you much," Jackson screamed, later launching into her hit single "Scream," which she recorded with her older brother Michael Jackson.

It's great to see Ms. Jackson back onstage.
