Barbra Streisand Gifts George Floyd’s Daughter Gianna With Disney Stock

Barbra Streisand gifted George Floyd’s 6-year-old daughter Gianna with Disney stock and two of her television specials over the weekend, Billboard can confirm.

Gianna, whose father’s murder in Minneapolis in May sparked protests against police brutality all across the world, shared a message of gratitude to the EGOT superstar on her Instagram Saturday (June 13). She showed off a folder from Disney as well as Streisand’s early TV specials My Name is Barbra from 1965 and Color Me Barbra from 1966.

“Thank You @barbrastreisand for my package, I am now a Disney Stockholder thanks to you,” Floyd’s daughter wrote. It’s unclear how many shares the multihyphenate purchased for Gianna.

Streisand told Billboard: “I sent Gianna videos where I played a little girl in my first television special singing kid songs and my second special a sequence with lots of baby animals.”

Streisand isn’t the only Grammy award-winning artist investing in Gianna’s future. Billboard confirmed earlier in June that Kanye West organized a 529 education plan that fully covers the 6-year-old girl’s college tuition. Gianna also received a full scholarship from Texas Southern University in honor of her father’s “powerful legacy” and Houston roots, according to the university’s official press release.
