"I'm here because I love Kobe and this was one of his favorite songs."
Beyonce opened the #KobeFarewell with "XO" and "Halo" and it was so incredibly emotional.
The #KobeFarewell took place on Monday at the Staples Center to honor the lives of Kobe and Gigi Bryant. Beyonce was not the only star to take the stage at the farewell, stars and fans filled the arena while Christina Aguilara gave a moving performance of "Ave Maria" and Kobe's wife, Vanessa, delivered a deeply touching memorial speech for her late husband and daughter.
Beyonce delivered a phenomenal version of both of her songs and brought such an insane amount of love to the Staples Center.
