BEYONCÉ Sings "XO" And "Halo" In Moving KOBE BRYANT Memorial
Beyoncé kicked off the public memorial for the late Kobe Bryant, his daughter Gianna Bryant, and seven others who were killed in a helicopter crash last month with a moving performance of her singles "XO" which, according to the hitmaker, was one of the basketball legend's favorite songs, and "Halo". Watch it below.
Bey was longtime friends with Kobe and his wife Vanessa Bryant. In fact, the hardcourt icon made a cameo appearance in the music video for 1999's "Bug A Boo," a song by the diva's former R&B group Destiny's Child.
The ceremony, which was dubbed "The Celebration of Life for Kobe & Gianna Bryant" and held at the Staples Center on February 24, 2020 in Los Angeles, also featured performances from Christina Aguilera and Alicia Keys.
