Grammy Tribute to Kobe Bryant With Boyz to Men, Alicia keys







At the start of this year’s Grammy telecast, Alicia Keys led a tribute to basketball legend Kobe Bryant with the help of Boyz II Men. Together, they sang a somber rendition of “It’s So Hard to Say Goodbye to Yesterday” in the middle of the Staples Center, Bryant’s home court for almost every one of his 20 years as a Los Angeles Laker. Bryant, his daughter Gianna, and seven other people were aboard the helicopter that crashed this morning in Calabasas, California, killing everyone aboard. The Grammys quickly pulled together a remembrance for the NBA star, and Lizzo dedicated her show-opening number to him as well. The Recording Academy released a statement regarding Bryant before showtime tonight that read in part, “All of us at the Recording Academy is deeply saddened by Kobe’s sudden passing, and our hearts go out to his family during this time.”
