Beyoncé posted a touching tribute on Instagram on Thursday following the death of Kobe Bryant and his daughter Gianna “Gigi” Bryant in the helicopter crash on Sunday.

Beyoncé posted three photos to her Instagram account. The first one she posted was of Kobe Bryant as a young boy.

The second photo she posted was of Gianna smiling, displaying her braces as a younger girl.

The third and final photo that Beyoncé posted was of the father and daughter together at a basketball game, with Kobe kissing Gianna’s head. The first two photos were posted without a caption, but with the last photo, Beyoncé wrote: “I will continue to diligently pray for your Queens. You are deeply missed beloved Kobe.”

The three posts have garnered a combined total of over 6.9 million likes in just six hours.

Tributes are still pouring in for the late former basketball star and his family, and on Wednesday, the Los Angeles Kings played the Tampa Bay Lightning at the Staples Center, where the Grammys took place just days before.

This was the first spoting game since Bryant’s death and his former team honored him with a video tribute and commemorative stickers the players wore.
