Taylor Swift kicked off her 6-day run on the SoFi Stadium stage last night — and shared a heart warming moment with Bianka Bryant, the daughter of Vanessa and the late Kobe Bryant.
It was captured on video with Taylor greeting Bianka side stage with a hug and then placing the iconic 22 fedora on Bianka’s head.
Both Vanessa and Natalia Bryant shared the memorable moment on their Instagram, with Vanessa’s caption reading, “We love you @taylorswift ❤️”
We can’t help but be reminded of the time when Kobe Bryant surprised Taylor Swift on stage in 2015. The Lakers legend revealed to Swift her very own banner which read, “Taylor Swift, Most Sold Out Performances” — in honor of her record-setting 16 sold-out shows — at the then STAPLES Center.
This was the first time an artist received a banner alongside the Lakers team. A historic moment for two legends — and last night felt just as special.
