Feb. 13 (UPI) -- Jennifer Hudson will honor Kobe Bryant with a special performance at the NBA All-Star Game.
The NBA announced Thursday that Hudson, 38, will perform a tribute to the late basketball star at the game Sunday at United Center in Chicago.
Bryant, his 13-year-old daughter, Gianna, and seven others were killed in a helicopter crash Jan. 26 in California. Bryant, who was 41, and Gianna were buried at a California cemetery during a private service last week.
Hudson mourned Bryant in an Instagram post the day of his death.
"It's like every time I go to sleep and then wake up somebody is gone! This news Hurts my heart so bad! #kobebryant," she wrote.
Chance the Rapper, Lil Wayne, DJ Khaled and Quavo will perform during the halftime show.
The NBA All-Star Game airs live Sunday at 8 p.m. ET on TNT.
