As most people know, Christina Grimmie was tragically gunned down outside of her concert in early June. She was shot by a deranged fan and died due to her injuries. A truly awful and disgusting tragedy of a life taken far too soon.
Many people have reached out and done performances, songs, and poems in honor of the late singer.
Tori Kelly is the most recent to do so.
Sometimes where words fail, music speaks, and this is definitely one of those moments. Please take a minute to listen to her beautiful song “Blink Of An Eye”.
this song was written for Christina Grimmie after she passed away tragically. i needed to write this song. thank you to my good friend, zac poor, who was brave enough to take on the challenge of writing it with me. my heart was & is still so heavy when i think of her not being with us. however, i am still comforted knowing that i’ll get to see her again someday in heaven. my prayers go out to her family & loved ones.
even though this song had specific meaning, more recently i‘m overwhelmed at the pain & the brokenness in the world today, & so this is really just me grieving. at all of it. life is so short.
thanks for listening, i love you guys.
“He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.” ~ Revelation 21:4
