Well, I definitely didn’t expect to start my Wednesday off by ugly crying but here I am.
Last summer the world lost a rising star, Christina Grimmie. She was shot by a crazed man who called himself a fan, and she was shot right outside of her venue. When all of this happened, I remember worrying that footage would be released because people had to be snapping photos and taking videos of the singer but luckily, none were.
If you can remember Christina Grimmie was on Adam Levine‘s team when she was on ‘The Voice’ and the two seemed to have a great relationship. Even after she passed away, Adam paid for all of her funeral costs to try and take some burden off of the family.
Last night Adam paid tribute to the late singer in front of her family.
Hey everyone! I just wanted to say thank you for making 2016 the best year for Celebrities Are Tragic! Many celebrities have retweeted articles about them, more views than ever, and it’s finally starting to gain more of a following. So thank you all so, so much for that!
Here are the stories that have been clicked on the most this year!
It has just been reported that Adam Levine will be paying for Christina Grimmie‘s funeral costs. If you weren’t away Adam was Christina’s coach when she appeared on season 6 of ‘The Voice’ and she came in third place.
Christina’s brother Marcus, who was hailed a hero in the shooting which left his sister and the shooter dead, posted this on Facebook.
I first heard from my sisters manager, Brian Teefey, that he will be making a gofundme to help our family move out of our current house and to take care of the funeral, and I figured why not, and I’m not about sharing that kind of stuff and I’m not a fan of handouts at all.
I found out this morning, that Adam Levine personally called my mother and said he will pay for the funeral and her plane flight, and I was blown away. Now a friend just told me to look at the gofundme page and I see it is at 100k. Words cannot express…literally I have no words.
I promise both my parents and I will read every one of these personalized messages. I’m so blown away by everything right now. But all I can say is thank you. And Christina will be missed and never ever forgotten.
Please do not feel the need to donate anything at all. Please. Just leave a kind word, message or picture in the comments or message me and sign this change.org petition to help Christina possible be remembered in the next legend of Zelda game, her favorite game of all time. (credit)
There are many people out there talking about how money wont bring Christina back and they are correct. Her friends and family will hold onto this pain forever, money wont bring her back. This money will help pay for them to find somewhere new to live, her mother has cancer so it will help pay for treatment, and hopefully they can find a good use for it to keep Christina’s memory alive, that is all that we can hope.
As most people know, Christina was killed in by a fan on Friday night in Florida. Many celebrities and fans have been opening up about Christina and what she meant to them. Artists from Bieber to Charlie Puth to Twenty One Pilots have taken time out of their concert to at least mention the young singer taken far too early in her life.
What most people don’t know is that Selena Gomez and Christina were extremely close. Right when Christina became a Youtube sensation Selena’s stepfather signed on to be her agent, so Selena was close with her from there on. Christina also sang back up for Selena, along with opening for her on her last tour.
Last night in Miami, Selena performed a beautiful tribute to her friend.
May everyone in Christina’s life, friend, family, and fans all heal from this tragic loss.
Christina Grimmie was shot and killed at her concert on Friday night in Orlando. There are no words that I can put in this blog that will be able to explain the sadness that I, probably along with many others feel. Christina was first discovered on YouTube, then was able to get her chance to really shine on ‘The Voice’ where she placed third.
Right now I don’t want to get political but this is potentially a gun control issue. Another person with a mental disorder having a gun. No word on whether it was legal or not.
Christina was reportedly at her merch table, signing autographs, meeting with fans when someone went up to her, shot her, before he could harm any more people Christina’s brother jumped into action and tackled the man who ended up taking his own life.
Christina was only 22 years old. Think about that, 22 years old with the whole world at her fingertips. Her music career, her love for life, everything was taken away over someone deciding that this was the right thing to do.
Concerts are supposed to be a place for people to come together and enjoy the music being played. It doesn’t matter your race, age, sex, weight, nothing matters when you are at a concert. You’re there to enjoy the music and that is that. Music is supposed to bring people together and that is why I think it is important to play Christina’s music. Do not let her talent fade away due to a psychopath taking away her life.
My thoughts and prayers go out to Christina’s family, friends, and fans. From everything that I have seen from her tweets to her Facebook and everywhere in between she was someone who truly enjoyed life.
