The 2020 Grammy Awards came at a time when the world is mourning the devastating death of Kobe Bryant.

Alicia Keys then took the stage to take on her hosting duties, offering a tribute of her own to the fallen NBA star with the help of Boyz II Men. Keys and the iconic R&B group sang an a capella version of “It’s So Hard to Say Goodbye to Yesterday” at the Staples Center as Bryant’s jerseys lit up above the audience.

“Here we are together on music’s biggest night celebrating the artists that do it best, but to be honest with you we are all feeling crazy sadness right now,” Keys said as she entered the stage. “Los Angeles, America and the world-wide world lost a hero,” she said. The “Fallen” singer then added that the audience was “heartbroken in the house that Kobe Bryant built.”
