    Thousands Attend Christina Grimmie’s Funeral

    A tragic end to a story just begun.

    Christina Grimmie was farewelled by family, friends and fans at a private funeral and public memorial in New Jersey, on Friday.

    After meeting with Christina’s fans during a five hour public memorial, the 22-year-old’s father delivered a heartwrenching speech at her funeral:

    [quote:28ofd4pj]“This crowd has blessed me beyond words. There is this gigantic hole in my heart that I know is never going to go away but God showed me he is way bigger than that hole. I believe that. There are three things that keep me upright rather than being a crumpled mess in the corner. I know I am going to see her again. She is not going to be hurting… This is where I am wrestling, God’s plan is better than my plan. I’ve argued with God, ‘Your plans are better than mine?’ This doesn’t make sense.”
    Her mother spoke about the last time she saw Christina:

    “The last time I saw my daughter was on my birthday. It was May 25th and the day before, the 24th we had a mother-daughter – we always have a mother-daughter time. We’d go get something to eat and talk and then we went on my birthday – me, Bud, Christina and Mark – we went to Cheesecake Factory and it was really nice. And then they had to get things ready for tour.”
    And on Monday, during a candlelight vigil for the Voice star, her brother – who tackled Grimmie’s killer and has been dubbed a hero by police – spoke of her final moments:

    “When the gunman came, he was very quick, it happened so fast, her arms were open and she saw Jesus next. “Her arms were open for him, her arms were open at all times. I love you Christina, you are the best.”
    While police have confirmed Grimmie had no personal connection to the gunman, a motive for the murder has yet to be determined.

    More than $180,000 has been raised for Christina’s through a GoFundMe campaign set up by her manager.

    I understand that god may give people some consolidation, and may help them get over hard times. And that's good.
    What's terrible though is how people seem to justify her death based on how god's plan is bigger than life itself.

    What kind of obsessive fanatic talk. It annoys me so badly
    I am the maniac, I am the ghoul

    Emblem3 Remembers 'Amazing' Christina Grimmie, Say Late Singer Had Planned to Tour With Them

    Emblem3 are paying tribute to their late friend Christina Grimmie, who they say had planned to tour with them prior to her tragic death.

    Christina and the guys of Emblem3 each found fame on reality TV -- she on The Voice, they on X Factor -- and had previously hit the road together on Selena Gomez's Stars Dance tour in 2013. Emblem3 is currently in the midst of their Waking Up tour, promoting a new EP of the same name.

    Keaton Stromberg told ET on Friday that the trio last saw their late friend about "a month or two ago," while Wesley Stromberg chimes in that they had been "just texting the other day talking about doing YouTube videos!"

    "We still can't believe this happened," he added solemnly.

    Christina was shot and killed on June 10 as she signed autographs for fans following a performance with Before You Exit in Orlando, Florida.

    "We were in Orlando three or four days before all of this happened. It just, it hits home because we're in the same world, we're out there touring, playing these same venues, similar venues, and you never know what kind of people are in the audience," Keaton said.

    "Both of them [Christina and Before You Exit] were supposed to open for us on this tour," added Drew Chadwick. "So, we had this more direct personal thing with them 'cause we're like, wait, that would have happened at our gig. But even more than that, it's like, we knew Christina and she hung out with us a lot."

    Keaton remembers her as "amazing" and "one of the nicest people I ever met," while Wesley said she was "one of the sweetest souls."

    "Do I mourn for a really long time? 'Cause I could easily just freak out about it, or do I just keep living my life?" he mused.

    "It's one of those things that's so surreal, you almost don't really know how to react," Drew confessed. "You sit there kinda dumbfounded."

    As the band continues to tour, they plan to beef up security but won't cancel meet and greets with their loyal fans.

    "We just wanna make sure that everyone's safe," Keaton explained. "This tour we actually didn't end up bringing security out because we had a lot in the past, and we've kinda grown up a bit. But we just realized that there is a boundary between some people."

    A memorial is being held for Christina on Friday in New Jersey. As ET previously reported, Adam Levine, who coached Christina on The Voice, is paying for the funeral. ... with_them/

    MAX Releases ‘Christina’s Song,’ A Tribute to Christina Grimmie

    Just over a week since the horrifying shooting that left Christina Grimmie dead while signing autographs at a concert in Orlando, the late singer’s friend, MAX, has released a song in her honor over the weekend (June 18).

    The song, titled “Christina’s Song,” is a tenderly sung tribute, with proceeds going directly to Grimmie’s family fund and charity.
    “This can’t be true, can’t believe you’re gone / How can they say, you’re where you belong / You should be here, and I shouldn’t be singing this song,” MAX mournfully reflects on the touching track.
    “For Christina: You were so kind. So loving. We all wish you were still here with us but pray you’re in a better place. Rest in peace Christina. You will continue to inspire and bring joy to all of our lives every day,” MAX wrote in the song’s description on YouTube.
    To date, the GoFundMe created by Christina’s manager for her family has generated over $187,000 in donations.
    Last week, Christina’s brother Marcus revealed on Facebook that Adam Levine personally called Christina’s mother and offered to pay for funeral and travel expenses.
    The New Jersey-born singer was just 22 years old when she was fatally shot while signing autographs at a concert in Orlando. ... inas-song/

Words cannot express what the many memorials, donations and tributes shared by Christina’s fans and those in the media and entertainment industry mean to us. She will live on in our hearts forever. We will take our time in determining the best ways to honor Christina moving forward.”

    Published on 10 Jul 2016
    this song was written for Christina Grimmie after she passed away tragically. i needed to write this song. thank you to my good friend, Zac Poor, who was brave enough to take on the challenge of writing it with me. my heart was & is still so heavy when i think of her not being with us. however, i am still comforted knowing that i'll get to see her again someday in heaven. my prayers go out to her family & loved ones.

    even though this song had specific meaning, more recently i'm overwhelmed at the pain & the brokenness in the world today, & so this is really just me grieving. at all of it. life is so short.
    thanks for listening, i love you guys.

    Meghan Trainor Says Her Fan Interactions Changed Because of Christina Grimmie

    Speaking to Billboard for her cover story, Meghan Trainor revealed that after the tragic murder of Christina Grimmie, she heavily considered putting the kibosh on any future meet and greets with fans at her shows.

    Trainor shared that she feared for her safety in light of the June 10 shooting in which The Voice contestant was shot dead while meeting with fans after her show in Orlando. Initially, she told her team that she didn’t feel comfortable interacting with the public while on tour due to the lingering threat of coming into contact with a potentially violent fan.
    “I was like, ‘Guys I can’t do this anymore.’ Because of [Christina],” she said.

    Fortunately for her devoted Megatrons, the pop star changed her mind about not meeting with fans on-on-one.

    “Last show I did in Buffalo, I went out after,” the “Me Too” singer revealed. “It kind of slowed down and everyone was leaving. I went out and said hi to some fans. My heart was beating and I was like, ‘You got this, you’re okay.’ And I saw my team circled around us subtly. I was like, ‘There’s my manager, there’s my security, there’s my brother, and there’s my assistant, and they’re all protecting me.’ And I was like, ‘We can do this.’ And we did it until the last person left… I love those moments. But it was scary.”

    Trainor also told Billboard that it wasn’t only the dangerous implications of Grimmie’s death that upset her, but also the loss of someone she looked up to before she found fame.

    “I knew of her really well. In high school I would always follow her YouTube page,” she explained. “And I commented in high school, and she commented back, and I was like, ‘Mom! A celebrity commented on my page!’ I was freaking out. I was stoked.”
    Years later, the pop star and the YouTube phenom finally met, something that Trainor recalls fondly.

    “I met her at some radio show I did like my first year. And I was like, ‘Dude, I followed your YouTube and you commented!’ She was like, ‘What? You know who I am?’ She was so sweet.”
    Trainor is but one of countless stars who mourned the death of Grimmie. Music artists like Adam Levine, Demi Lovato and Selena Gomez were just a few who spoke up about the young singer-songwriter after news of her murder shook the industry back in June. ... mie-death/

    You are welcome! It is sad to watch this but I'm glad there is still Christina's work left to be shared. She also had one of the leading roles in the romantic comedy The Matchbreaker, but there is no release date yet according to Imdb.

    I like her EP, her songs are more mature. The only thing I don't like is the use of auto-tune at times - she never needed that, I know ahe could sing all that without it.

    Wow, i had no idea she shot a video for all songs. "Snow White" is my most favorite song of her, video is quite good for this!

    Also would love to get an album by her. Her discography is way too small, she had so much talent
