Today is such a sad day. We have to say goodbye to a young, talented, gifted and fun girl. Christina Victoria Grimmie was an American singer / songwriter who was born in Martlon, New Jersey. She’s best known for

participating in The Voice in 2014, as well as her covers, which were uploaded on YouTube. Adam Levine, her The Voice coach and bandleader of Maroon 5, signed her to his label. She was supported by celebrities like Selena Gomez, Justin Bieber, Lil Wayne and others. In 2010 Selena Gomez’s stepfather Brian Teefey discovered her videos on YouTube and he became her manager. Grimmie performed in the UNICEF charity concert, and also performed backup vocals for Selena Gomez & the Scene, and was on the first ever DigiTour in 2011, specially designed for YouTube artists. Gomez became her mentor. She appeared on the Billboard Social 50. She also opened for Selena Gomez & the Scene, Allstar Weekend and the Jonas Brothers during the Concert of Hope. She toured for six weeks with Selena Gomez & the Scene opening for them in the We Own the Night Tour.

She released an EP entitled Find Me, on June 14, 2011.Her debut single ‘Advice’ was released to Radio Disney on June 11, with the music video, directed by Sean Babas, being released on July 19 on her YouTube channel. On June 10, 2016, Grimmie was shot three times while signing autographs after a performance at The Plaza Live in Orlando, Florida. The unidentified gunman then fatally shot himself after being tackled by her brother. Grimmie was taken to a hospital in critical condition; her death was confirmed on June 11. Her family, friends and fans are kept in our prayers. Christina is now in a better place and as she tweeted 2012, she wanted become an elf after dying. Hopefully her wish comes true. She’ll always and forever be remembered as a talented, gifted artist, great daughter, friend and idol. 

Rest in peace, Christina.
