LOS ANGELES – Many stars arrived at the 2020 Grammy Awards on Sunday in Los Angeles with heavy hearts as they reeled in the tragic news surrounding the death of Kobe Bryant, his daughter Gianna and seven others after the helicopter they were traveling in crashed in Calabasas, Calif.
R&B singer India Arie shared her own sentiments on the red carpet ahead of the show and told Fox News that she felt particularly saddened by the news, given that her father Ralph Simpson enjoyed a 10-year NBA and ABA career that spanned from 1970 to 1980.
“Kobe’s father played, my father played in the NBA and the ABA so it’s like family energy,” Arie, 44, said about the news.
