The Staples Center, which hosted the Grammy Awards on Sunday night, illuminated the now-retired jerseys belonging to Kobe Bryant after the NBA legend died earlier in the day.
The Staples Center flew flags at half mast and showed images of Bryant on big screens around the arena. Bryant’s “8” and “24” jerseys, which hang from the arena’s ceiling, were also illuminated.
Grammys host Alicia Keys gave an impassioned speech about Bryant’s legacy as the show began.
“We’re literally standing here heartbroken in the house that Kobe Bryant built,” she said.
Boyz II Men then joined her on stage to sing a rendition of their song “It’s So Hard To Say Goodbye To Yesterday.”
