Gianna Floyd thanked Barbra Streisand in a post on Instagram
Gianna Floyd, the 6-year-old daughter of George Floyd, is now a Disney shareholder, thanks to Barbra Streisand.
On Saturday, the young girl thanked the singer for the gift with a post on her Instagram page, featuring a slideshow of photos displaying the letter and certificate she received in the mail. Streisand, 78, also sent Gianna two of her studio albums, My Name Is Barbra and Color Me Barbra.
“Thank You @barbrastreisand for my package, I am now a Disney Stockholder thanks to you 🥰🥰🥰,” Gianna’s post read, alongside a photo of her smiling with her certificate.
The package included her Disney share certificate and two Streisand studio albums, “My Name is Barbra” and “Color Me Barbra.”
Shares of a Disney stock cost around $115 and are starting to go up, before the COVID-19 pandemic a stock was in the range of $140-$150, according to Variety.
The 10-time Grammy winner also gave Gianna two copies of her studio albums “My Name Is Barbra” and “Color Me Barba” from 1965 and 1966, respectively.
Kanye West has also financially supported Gianna in the wake of her father’s death. Earlier this month, he launched a college fund for Gianna to fully cover her eventual tuition. Texas Southern University also offered her a full-ride scholarship if she chooses to attend the school in the future.
Following George Floyd’s death at the hands of Minneapolis police officers on May 25, protests have since continued around the country. Derek Chauvin, the officer who kneeled on George Floyd’s neck for more than eight minutes, has been arrested and charged with second-degree murder, and three other officers have been charged with aiding and abetting the murder.
