‘My Real Legacy’

In March 2020, amid the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, Davis penned a heartfelt caption honoring her “relishing [her] true blessings” and sharing a throwback photo with Genesis at the beach. 

She wrote, “Besides hand sanitizers, avoiding crowds, electrolytes, Tylenol, gassing up, etc… THIS is my #Coronavirus weapon. I’m relishing my true blessings. My real legacy. This time is a reminder that all we have is NOW. Imagine the 46 million or more people in this country who live on or below the poverty line. Think of those who can’t drive or walk or who don’t have a loved one who has their back. Praying for EVERYONE’s health but also hoping this is a wake up call to realize what has true value❤”
