Adam Levine Pays Touching Tribute to Christina Grimmie on The Voice
Back in June of 2016, up-and-coming pop singer and former The Voice contestant Christina Grimmie was murdered while signing autographs for fans following a concert in Orlando.
She was just 22 years old.
Grimmie was a tremendous talent at the beginning of what was likely to be an extraordinary career.
More importantly, however, those closest to Christina say that she'll be remembered as a truly kind and generous soul who sang out of a pure desire to share her gift with the world.
During her time on The Voice, Christina was coached by Adam Levine, who continued to mentor the young singer as she embarked on a recording career.
Last night, with Grimmie's parents and brother front and center, Levine and his team honored Christina with a moving rendition of the Beatles' "Hey Jude."
"I miss her, it's unfair that she's not here and we're gonna sing her a little song tonight, and I'm going to be singing every word to her in her honor," Levine told Christina's family.
In March, Christina's parents thanked her fans for their support and announced that their daughter's first full-length studio album, All Is Vanity, will be released on June 2 to coincide with National Gun Violence Awareness Day.
Christina was shot to death by an obsessed fan, and her parents say they'll spend the rest of their days wondering how her death could have been prevented.
