It’s just one of the two tragedies Orlando has faced in the last week, and along with the Orlando nightclub massacre, Christina Grimmie’s death seems that much more surreal.
A regular girl with big dreams of her own and her whole life in front of her, her big brother Marcus took to the state at a vigil for the singing, describing her as “awesome”.
“She loved this town, she love this state, she loved singing, she loved the Lord and she loved me,” he said.
Marcus also took a moment to express his sympathy for those affected by the Orlando nightclub massacre and described how blessed he feels to have the support he and and his family have around them, something that not everyone affected by the nightclub shooting has received.
“She’s in a better place,” he said.
