The Voice star Christina Grimmie Shot Dead at 22

What a fucked up world we live in. Used to watch this girl on YouTube before she appeared on The Voice. RIP.

Quote:
Singer Christina Grimmie has died at 22 years old.

"It is with a heavy heart that we can confirm that Christina has passed and went home to be with the Lord," her publicist tells E! News.

"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."

The former Voice contestant was taken to a local hospital tonight in Orlando, Fla., tonight after being shot by a male suspect, who proceeded to shoot himself.

Members of the band Before You Exit were signing autographs after a concert at Orlando's Plaza Live when a male suspect shot Grimmie.

"Upon arrival officers found the male suspect, who was deceased and one victim who was gravely injured. That victim, singer Christina Grimmie, was transported to the hospital with critical injuries," the Orlando Police tells E! News.


"Detectives were told the suspect, who is not being identified at this time, walked toward Christina and shot her. Christina's brother immediately tackled the suspect stopping him from causing any more harm to Christina and her fans. During the struggle, the suspect shot himself. The suspect was pronounced dead at the scene."

Police tell us the investigation is in its preliminary stages.

In 2014, Grimmie participated in season six of The Voice. Her unique sound caused all four coaches to turn their chairs, but ultimately she joined Adam Levine's team and went on to the finals, finishing in third place.

After news of Grimmie's hospitalization, The Voice tweeted, "We are heartbroken. @TheRealGrimmie is a loved member of our family. Our thoughts are with her and her family. #PrayForChristina."

Levine also posted a throwback photo of himself with Christina, writing, "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."

Earlier this year, Grimmie released her second EP, Side A, which consisted of four songs, with plans to later release Side B.

22 is too young to die, especially like that. The first time I saw her on YouTube:


Then saw her audition on the voice

Yeah heard last night, never knew she was on The Voice, knew from stumbling on one of her unplugged songs 'Over Overthinking You'

Such a shame, quite talented, didn't know she was so young too. RIP

Saw it on facebook shortly after it happened. A fan was asking for Prayers. Shot 4 times then the piece of shit offed himself. She posted a video to snapchat inviting fans to come meet her and that's what brought the guy in. Fuck

Berz out.

why people get shot:

1) money
2) unrequited love


I'm going with option #2 on this one.

police update said he wasnt a local, and had multiple weapons and gun clips, and had planned to return to wherever he was from (forgot where) sounds like he planned to kill some fans too, but after getting into a scuffle with Grimmie's brother, the shooter killed himself... or at least that's what they claim he did... wouldn't blame her brother for killing the guy (if that happened)
