Carrie Fisher’s daughter, actress Billie Lourd, honored her mom with a song on the two-year anniversary of her death.
Lourd wrote in an emotional Instagram post, which was accompanied by a video: “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). So I decided to do something a little vulnerable for me, but something we both loved to do together – sing.” The video posted by Lourd featured her singing the song “These Days,” a Jackson Browne-penned tune. Lourd performed the song while playing a piano she said was given to Fisher by Fisher’s father, Eddie Fisher. She also said “These Days” was “one of her favorite songs.”
Carrie Fisher died on December 27, 2016 of undetermined causes after suffering a cardiac event on a flight from London to Los Angeles. She was 60 years old. Fisher’s mother — and Lourd’s grandmother — actress Debbie Reynolds, died one day later.
