Jennifer Hudson sang her face off as she paid tribute to Kobe Bryant during the NBA All Star game Sunday night in Chicago.
The Chicago native sang “For All We Know” just before the game started. As images of Kobe and his daughter Gianna were projected on a screen behind her, J-Hud had the crowd at the United Center in tears as she performed an a-capella version of the song.
She was introduced by basketball icon and businessman Magic Johnson, who told attendees he wanted everyone to “come together” to honor Bryant and former NBA Commissioner David Stern, who died on New Year’s Day.
“We will never see another basketball player quite like Kobe,” Johnson said. “He was passionate about being a great father, husband, filmmaker.”
