The 38-year-old singer performed “For All We Know (We May Meet Again)” as images of the late NBA legend were shown on massive screens at the United Center behind her.
Basketball legend Magic Johnson also made a touching tribute to Kobe, by leading an eight-second moment silence.
He said before the game: “We will never see another basketball player quite like Kobe.
“He was passionate about being a great father, husband, filmmaker.”

The Los Angeles Lakers revealed new details about the public memorial, including details on tickets to get into the event.
Tickets will cost either $224 or $24.02, and fans can register to purchase tickets through Ticketmaster starting from Friday before they go on sale on Wednesday, Feb. 19, 2020.
