After a weekend of hurt in Orlando, there has been an amazing gesture given to the family of Christina Grimmie.
Christina was shot dead at a meet and greet following a gig in Orlando and it has devastated the music world.
As a contestant on season six of the USA’s The Voice, she was mentored by Adam Levine in the finals stages.
On late Sunday evening, Christina’s brother Marcus left a message on Facebook saying ”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.”
Many artists including Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber have broken down over Christina’s death but the ultimate piece of sadness and help had come from Levine, who posted on Facebook himself said ”Christina was a natural, a gifted talent that comes along so rarely. She was taken from us too soon. This is yet another senseless act of extreme violence. I am left stunned and confused how these things can conceivably continue to happen in our world.”
Following the death, Christina’s family set up a GoFundMe page, which has already reached $150,000. They have now said the money will be used to help move the family away from their current home, which has too many memories to hold.
A vigil for Christina is being held in her home town of Evesham in New Jersey today.
