Beyoncé is continuing to honor Kobe and Gianna Bryant.

Hours after saying her final goodbye to the father-daughter duo, Bey shared behind-the-scenes photos from her rehearsal for their public celebration of life service.

In the shots, which were shared on Bey's website, the 38-year-old entertainer is shown wearing a gold Lakers jersey with custom jewelry and personalized purple nails that featured Kobe and Gigi's names spelled out in small rhinestones across each nail. Bey's makeup also paid tribute to the late legend as she covered her eyelids in Lakers' purple.

Beyoncé opened Kobe and Gigi Bryant’s Celebration of Life service with an emotional rendition of her hit song “XO.”

“I’m here because I love Kobe and this was one of his favorite songs," she told the 20,000 mourners at Staples Center on Monday (February 24). Bey, who was wearing a bright gold suit in Kobe's honor, then explained that she was going to restart the song and asked the crowd to sing along as they celebrated the life of Kobe and Gigi.

After the track concluded, Bey went on to sing her 2008 hit "Halo," which she ended with a kiss up to the heavens.

On Monday, 20,000 mourners gathered inside the house that Kobe built, the Staples Center, to honor the late legend and his 13-year-old daughter, Gigi. The father-daughter duo's life and legacy were celebrated with a public memorial service nearly one month after their lives, along with seven others, were cut short in a tragic helicopter crash.

In addition to a performance from Beyoncé, the service also featured performances from Alicia Keys and Christina Aguilera as well as a number of personal tributes from those closest to Kobe, including Jimmy Kimmel, Michael Jordan, Shaquille O' Neal, and his wife, Vanessa Bryant, who shared stories of both her husband and daughter's legacies.

Kim Kardashian, Kanye West, Kris Jenner, Jennifer Lopez, Snoop Dogg, Dwyane Wade, Gabrielle Union, Magic Johnson, Michael Phelps, Alex Rodriguez, LL Cool J, Queen Latifah, Kyrie Irving, and Steph Curry, to name a few, were among the many celebs in attendance of the ceremony.
