Kobe Bryant’s death makes waves in the music community.

Arguably one of the greatest basketball players of all time tragically died in a helicopter crash Sunday morning in Calabasas. One of his daughter’s, Gigi, was also on board and died. TMZ reports they were on their way to basketball practice in the neighboring town of Thousand Oaks. Eye witnesses reportedly heard the engine of the helicopter sputtering before it slammed into the hills.

The world of music is grieving the loss. It includes messages from Justin Bieber, Demi Lovato, Drake, Taylor Swift, P!nk and more.

I’ve never been much of a sports fan but Kobe Bryant was a hero to me and it was his words and way of thinking and living that lifted me up during times where I felt like I couldn’t get off the ground. When I was 16 and going through what felt like an excruciatingly painful period in my life, I first saw Kobe’s MUSE documentary, and the mamba mentality is the only thing got me through every single performance. He was fighting inner demons, and so was I, and the way he used them to fuel his game on the court made me feel like I could use them to fuel me onstage. At my weakest moments I would channel a different person like he did, because when I felt broken and lost offstage, he taught me how to use my own pain, he taught me how to access strength I didn’t know I had, because on my worst days, I thought of Kobe and suddenly I could do things I didn’t think I could do. I watched every interview, I read every quote of his, and I wish that he knew how many times he saved me, how many times he helped me access a champion in myself that I couldn’t have seen on my own, how many times he helped me use my own demons, how many times he taught me how to use pain to make me a better person, how many times he taught me by example about life by the way he carried himself and the way he saw things…. and I never got the chance to fell him this in person. I’ve watched only two basketball games in my life, but what Kobe did for me changed the course of my life. I can’t imagine how many people he did this for. His legacy will live on in the lives and minds and souls that he touched, he made his mark not only in the game, but in humanity itself. He is a hero to me forever. Mamba forever.

One of the most genuine ppl I’ve ever met. Just a great human being! I’ve always admired Kobe & his work ethic, but spending time with him furthered that admiration because not only was he a legend but he was a human being first. At dinner one night in China he asked each one of my dancers why they loved dance & what made them tick. This went on for hrs Everyone felt included & inspired by each others stories. The center of attention didn’t need to be him or I.. Everyone present was amazed at how engaged he was in all the stories. Kobe being a complete competitor tapped my glass with his empty one, after each shot he finished determined to make me give up or throw up trying. Needless to say I couldn’t hang with Mamba lost and had to be carried out after 13 whiskeys. Memories I’ll never forget. This is so hard. I’m praying for his family today! What a loss
