The news of Christina Grimmie’s passing is still a shock to most and many are having a tough time coming to terms with her unexpected death. While signing autographs after a concert in Orlando, Florida on Friday, the singer was fatally shot and later passed away from her injuries.
After hearing this tragic news, Christina’s hometown of Evesham Township, New Jersey has decided to hold a night vigil to honor their very own. Christina grew up in the southern New Jersey town but later moved to Los Angeles in 2012.
A GoFundMe account was set up by Christina’s manager, Brian Teefey, in order to help the her family during this very difficult time. Fans have been donating to the family in this time of grief and have raised over $131,000.
Teeny stated, “As family Mother, Father, and Brother made the ultimate family sacrifice to support Christina on her musical journey, they did nothing but love her and support her as family the best they knew how, the only worry I want them to have at this point is that of recovery… Grimms I love you, and miss you beyond comprehension.”
Christina Grimmie will be deeply missed and our thoughts and prayers are with her family and friends.
