Wow, this is tragic. Former Voice contestant Christina Grimmie, 22 was killed outside of her Orlando concert. Grimme was signing autographs for fans when a man came up to her and shot her. Her brother then tackled him and he turned the gun on himself. He was carrying two guns and a knife. It is still unclear if the man knew Grimmie personally or it was a random act.
He rep released a statement,”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 gun shot 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. https://www.gofundme.com/christinagrimmie.”
There are no words. We lost a beautiful soul with an amazing voice. Our hearts go out to the friends, fans and family of @TheRealGrimmie.
