Barbra Streisand Gifts George Floyd's 6-Year-Old Daughter with Disney Stock

George Floyd’s 6-year-old daughter is Disney’s newest stockholder, thanks to a generous gift from singer Barbra Streisand.

Gianna Floydthanked Streisand on her Instagram account on Saturday, and posted photos displaying the Disney letter and certificate she received in the mail from the 10-time Grammy award winner.

Streisand also gave Gianna two copies of her studio albums “My Name Is Barbra” and “Color Me Barbra” from 1965 and 1966, respectively.

Shares of Disney stock currently go for roughly $115. Before the coronavirus pandemic, shares were in the $140-$150 range, and have started to climb up again.

It’s unclear how many shares Gianna received from Streisand.

Last week, Gianna was granted a full-ride scholarship to Texas Southern University in Houston if she chooses to attend.

Kanye Westalso set up a college fund for Gianna earlier in the month.

George Floyd died May 25 after being pinned down by police in Minneapolis, repeatedly pleading, “I can’t breathe.” His death has sparked worldwide protests and calls for racial justice, and has spawned a campaign to “defund” police departments.
