Singer-actress Barbra Streisand has given George Floyd's daughter, Gianna, Disney shares and a couple of her albums.

Floyd, whose death on May 25 sparked widespread protests in the US against racism and police brutality, was killed when a policeman knelt on his neck for almost nine minutes.

The six-year-old posted a photo on Instagram of herself holding up a letter from Streisand, a certificate of the shares and the albums, Color Me Barbra and My Name Is Barbra.

She included in the caption: "Thank You @barbrastreisand for my package, I am now a Disney Stockholder thanks to you.”

It’s hasn't been revealed how many shares Streisand gifted Gianna.
