Billie Lourd Performs Moving Tribute To Mum Carrie Fisher
This week marks two years since Carrie Fisher passed away.
Her daughter Billie Lourd has marked the anniversary by performing a moving rendition of "These Days" by Jackson Browne on the family piano that was given to Fisher by her father.
"It has been two years since my Momby’s death and I still don’t know what the “right” thing to do on a death anniversary is (I’m sure a lot of you feel the same way about your loved ones)," Lourd wrote on Instagram.
"So I decided to do something a little vulnerable for me, but something we both loved to do together - sing," she explained, adding that the song was one of her mother's favourites.
"These Days" was written by Browne as a teenager but first recorded by German artist and Velvet Underground vocalist Nico in 1967. The moving song has been covered by scores of musicians including Elliott Smith, Cher, St. Vincent, and Drake.
"And as the song says, we must “keep on moving”. I’ve found that what keeps me moving is doing things that make me happy, working hard on the things that I’m passionate about and surrounding myself with people I love and making them smile," wrote of the song.
"I hope this encourages anyone feeling a little low or lost to “keep on moving”. As my Momby once said, “take your broken heart and turn it into art” - whatever that art may be for you," said Lourd.
Fisher died unexpectedly after suffering a heart attack on board an LA-bound airplane in December 2016.
Fans have been sharing tributes to Fisher on social media.
