The first Los Angeles Lakers game since Kobe Bryant’s tragic death paid tribute to the NBA legend, his daughter Gianna and the other victims in the helicopter crash that took 9 lives.
During Friday’s game at the Staples Center in downtown Los Angeles, the Lakers and the Portland Trail Blazers honored the late athlete with an emotional tribute. Usher started off the tribute by singing a special rendition of ‘Amazing Grace’. Ben Hong followed with a touching rendition of ‘Hallelujah’ while Boyz-II-Men ended the pregame ceremony with ‘The Star Spangled Banner’.
During halftime, Wiz Khalifa and Charlie Puth delivered a heartbreaking performance of the single ‘See You Again’ to honor Kobe. Watch the video of Wiz and Charlie performing “See You Again” at the link here.
