This Sunday is going to be a special one. The NBA and the world are still mourning over the passing of Kobe Bryant, his daughter Gianna, and the seven other members involved in the tragic helicopter crash last month.
Jennifer Hudson will have the honor of paying respect to Kobe Bryant at the game on Sunday. On Thursday the NBA made the announcement that the 38-year-old songstress will open the All-Star game with a special tribute to Kobe. She will also honor Gianna and the seven other victims from the crash.
The half-time show is going to feature Chi-Town native Chance The Rapper alongside Lil Wayne, DJ Khaled, and Quavo.
Both team LeBron and team Giannis will honor Kobe, Gianna, and the other 7 victims by wearing a patch that has 9 stars. This weekend will be a bit sad but we must celebrate the lives that were lost and never forget the impact all 9 people had on this world.
