Aug. 4 (UPI) -- Taylor Swift shared a sweet moment onstage with Kobe Bryant's 6-year-old daughter Bianka Bryant at her Eras concert in Inglewood, Calif.

The 33-year-old singer-songwriter was performing her song "22" at Thursday night's show, when she hugged Bianka, daughter of the late basketball star and Vanessa Bryant. Swift gave the girl her hat.


Bianka was attending the show at SoFi Stadium with her mom and sister Natalia Bryant, 20.

"We love you @taylorswift," she captioned the post.

Vanessa and Kobe Bryant had four daughters together: Natalia, Gianna, Bianka and Capri. Kobe Bryant, Gianna and seven others were killed in a helicopter crash in January 2020.

Vanessa Bryant honored Kobe Bryant and Gianna at Swift's concert by wearing a denim jacket featuring an image of Kobe Bryant onstage with Swift at one of the singer's 2015 concerts.

The jacket also featured a patch reading "Say You'll Remember Me," a lyric from Swift's song "Wildest Dreams."


Swift kicked off her Eras tour in March and will bring the North American leg of the tour to a close Saturday. The singer announced additional North American dates for 2024 on Thursday.
