Hollywood actor Jamie Foxx has paid tribute to his sister on the second anniversary of her death.
The Oscar-winning star, 54, announced in October 2020 that DeOndra Dixon had died at the age of 36.
He celebrated the anniversary by sharing a series of photos of them together on Instagram.
He wrote: “Deondra, I know you’re in heaven and you make everyone laugh… and make everyone dance to your songs.
“I miss you terribly, but I know your soul shines brightly. I love you forever.”
Pussycat Dolls star Nicole Scherzinger was among the famous names to share messages of support, writing: “All the love.”
Dixon was born with Down Syndrome and later became an ambassador for the Global Down Syndrome Foundation.
Foxx and the Foundation then established a fund in her memory.
The screen star, whose film roles include Django Unchained and The Amazing Spider-Man 2, announced the news of her death two years ago with a heartfelt tribute.
He wrote: “My heart is broken into a million pieces… my beautiful loving sister Deondra has changed…
“I say transformed because she will always be alive… everyone who knew my sister… knew she was a bright light…”
