The BrandLaureate extends our deepest condolences and sympathies to the family and fans of the late Kobe Bryant, NBA basketball champion and The

Brandlaureate Legendary award winner who was killed in helicopter crash on Sunday.

In the accident, Kobe’s daughter Gianna and seven others also died, when their private Sikorsky S-76 helicopter caught fire after it struck a hillside in Calabasas amid heavy fog.

News of Kobe’s death sent shockwaves around the world.

Kobe spent his 20-year career with the LA Lakers, winning five NBA championships before retiring in 2016.

Bryant and Gianna are survived by his wife Vanessa and their three other daughters Natalia, Bianca and Capri.

We pray that God will give them courage and strength to face their moment of grief.

May his soul rest in peace.
