On December 16, Gianna turned seven. Her sixth year was marred by tragedy: her father, George Floyd, was killed by Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin in May, sparking renewed Black Lives Matter protests across the world.

According to TMZ, rapper Lil Baby decided to do something special for Gianna, throwing a huge birthday bash for the girl at his own expense.

Photos posted to Instagram show the party space decked out with colorful balloons of many shapes and sizes, as well as plenty of guests to keep Gianna company.
