Christina Grimmie, Singer On 'The Voice,' Dies After Concert Shooting

  • Published on Jun 10, 2016
  • Christina Grimmie, a star of NBC's "The Voice," died early Saturday morning after being shot at a concert.
    The 22-year-old was signing autographs after a performance in Orlando Friday night when a man approached her and shot her, according to Orlando police.
    Orlando police tweeted that Grimmie's brother tackled the shooter. The shooter then shot and killed himself.
    Grimmie came in third on season six of "The Voice." She auditioned for the show at the age of 19, performing Miley Cyrus' "Wrecking Ball." She impressed all four judges, and ended up choosing Adam Levine as her coach.
    He said on Instagram before police confirmed her death, "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."
    After both Orlando police and Grimmie's publicist announced her death, "The Voice" tweeted, "There are no words. We lost a beautiful soul with an amazing voice. Our hearts go out to the friends, fans and family of @TheRealGrimmie."
    Grimmie grew up in New Jersey and was first discovered in 2010 after posting videos of her singing on her RUclips page.
    As of Saturday morning, police had not named the shooter or released a motive.

    This is so unfair. She was so light hearted and young. What a horrible way to go. Her life was taken from her while achieving her dream.

    Just…WHO would want to target this beautiful, amazing, talented girl!?! It boggles my mind.
    I just can’t believe it. Celebrities die too, because they are human
    beings like the rest of us normal folks…but I can’t explain why it’s so
    shocking when it happens. It just is.

    It's so surreal to comprehend the fact that she is gone. Like I've grown up listening to her, met her, seen her lice and now she is going, how does this happen? Gun violence need to stop.

    Just as we were mourning the loss of Muhammad Ali, this happens, on the same day as his funeral no less.
    We try to honor their deeds even as their faces fade from our memory. Those memories are all that's left, when the bastards have taken everything else. Christina Grimmie wasn't a legend like Muhammad Ali, but she was something else.

      Criminals become criminals by breaking the law. You don't think someone capable of murder is also capable of stealing?
      And stealing isn't even necessary. If you know the right people, all it takes is asking around. You'll eventually find someone who can sell you a gun illegally. (trust me: I've happened across people who obtained and sold illegal guns from their homes)
      All that said, these two men didn't need guns to go through with their plan. The first murder in history was done using the jaw bone of an animal. People have been killing each other for thousands of years, long before guns were even thought of. Look around at the world we live in. Don't underestimate the creativity of mankind.
