Upon hearing the tragic news of Christina Grimmie’s passing over the weekend, many fans and artistes have offered their condolences and paid tributes to the late singer.
Proving that “The Voice” family is a strong one, Grimmie’s former coach, Adam Levine, has made a generous offer to cover the expenses for her funeral so that her family can properly commemorate the amazing woman that she was.
Grimmie’s borther, Marcus (who tackled the killer, Kevin James Loibl, after he shot her), shared the news of Levine’s sweet gesture on Facebook. “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,” he wrote.
Selena Gomez is another pop star and friend of Grimmie who was deeply affected by the tragedy. She paid tribute to the 22-year-old songstress after her death was confirmed. During her “Revival” concert in Miami, Gomez broke down in tears mid-song after dedicating it to her late friend.
During Grimmie’s recent hometown vigil, Marcus continued to express his gratitude for the overwhelming support towards his family. “Adam Levine paid for Christina’s funeral. Selena (Gomez) is singing a song and crying (during her concert). These people didn’t have to (do it) and we are blessed. She’s in a better place….Thank you to everyone once again,” he said.
We continue this week with heavy hearts as we remember Grimmie and the Orlando victims in our prayers.
