Jennifer Hudson delivered a very touching tribute to the late basketball legend, Kobe Bryant and his 13-year-old daughter, Gianna Bryant, and seven other deceased victims during the 2020 NBA All-Star Game.

The whole world was shaken and was sad when an unexpected accident took the life of the NBA superstar and his daughter together with seven other people during the Calabasas tragic helicopter crash. Fans, as well as celebrities, poured out their condolences including the Oscar winner and singer, Jennifer Hudson. Just like many celebrities who adored Kobe, she expressed her sadness and shared how heart-broken she was on one of her Instagram posts. She also shared how she slept and woke up the next day only knowing someone is gone.

Last Sunday, Hudson put on a purple velvet long sleeve dress during her performance to pay tribute to Kobe and Gianna and the other victims of the crash. Her act moved so many people to tears. The NBA legend was also honored before the players were introduced.

LeBron James also showed his respect and paid tribute to his late colleague’s daughter Gianna, by leading his team in wearing a No. 2 marked journey. Likewise, Giannis Antetokounmpo’s team put on a No. 24 labeled sports jersey to remember the deceased Laker’s pride.

The sporting event was started by a request from Magic Johnson. He sympathized with everyone and said how sad must it have been for Kobe’s fans and friends. Later on, he asked the crowd to stand up which filled the place with the people’s voice chanting the legend’s name. Later on, he asked for an eight-second moment of silence and asked people to love each other on behalf of Kobe Bryant. He highlighted how important it is. He further added that it is what the basketball player must have wanted.
