Artists, fellow players, and fans all came together to pay respects to this inspiring man. To open up the emotional ceremony, Usher performed an emotional rendition of ‘Amazing Grace.'
"Amazing Grace, How sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me
I once was lost, but now am found
T’was blind but now I see
T’was Grace that taught my heart to fear
And Grace, my fears relieved
How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believed"
This classic hymn was the perfect pick for a tribute to Kobe Bryant. And it is truly a powerful moment as Usher stands alone in the middle of the court with the lights dimmed around him. There are a multitude of tears as the camera pans to show reactions from NBA players all across the league.
