The death of the twenty two years old ‘Voice’ star left everyone heartbroken. No one predicted that the evening would turn out to be so disastrous. Right after her final performance, the singer stepped out to meet her fans. While she was signing the autographs and posing for the pictures with her fans, Kevin James Loibl approached her and shot her several times. Soon after, he shot himself as well.
Her publicist confirmed the demise of Grimmie.
It is with a heavy heart that we can confirm that Christina has passed and went home to be with the Lord. She was shot at her show in Orlando and, unfortunately, didn’t survive the gunshot wounds. We ask at this time that you respect the privacy of her family and friends in their time of mourning. If you’d like to give back to Christina’s family in her memory, please consider donating to the families GoFundMe page in their time of need.
From Adam Levine to Selena Gomez, everyone is mourning over the death of Christina.
Adam Levine posted a disheartening message along with her picture. He wrote: I’m sad, shocked and confused. We love you so much Grimmie. We are all praying hard that you can pull through this…this just isn’t fair.
During her Miami concert, Selena Gomez was beyond emotional and dedicated a song to Christina with teary eyes. She cancelled her post-concert meet and greets session; Gomez was very close to her as she was her mentor. Before dedicating her “Transfiguration” song, she shared with audience “One thing about Christina and her family is that she holds her faith so closely to her. I think it’s not about a religion and it’s not about good deeds. I think she just had faith and I don’t really understand how this really happened, but I would like to dedicate this song to her.”
On her twitter account, she posted this photo with caption: “My heart is absolutely broken. I miss you Christina.”
Fifth Harmony, too, bid her goodbye during their performance. Normani Kordei said: “Such a beautiful soul, such a beautiful talent. I remember the first time we met her. She was nothing but nice to us, so humble. We love you. We’re praying for your family and we know that you’re smiling down from above. Let’s all remember her. Christina Grimmie.”
Charlie Puth dedicated “See you again” to the twenty two years old singer along with heartbreaking word. “I was reading the news last night and heard that my good friend Christina Grimmie was killed, and I want to dedicate this song to her tonight. I’ve been upset about this all day, mainly because I just never got to say what I wanted to say to her, and I feel like this song perfectly captures that.”
Many other known personalities expressed their shock when the news broke out. Demi Lovato, Lucy Hale, Dodie Clark, Nick Jonas, and many others took to social networking sites to post heartfelt messages and support to her family.
Marcus, Grimmie’s brother, also wrote good words in the memory of her sister. He shared a few pictures of Christina and asked fans to share their memories and pictures, too. I would love all and any of you to post pictures of you and her and/or memories you have of her down in the comments. I will cherish it forever and always. So please do that for me.
He also wrote “Christina was more than my sister. She was a partner in life. A superstar. A goofball. Introverted. And a friend to everyone. Genuinely. But above all…she was my baby sister. She loved the Lord and her family and was always there for me and I honestly don’t know what ill do without her.”
Markus was the one who chased the attacker and prevented further loss.
