    YouTuber and The Voice contestant (placing third on season six with Adam Levine’s team) Christina Grimmie was shot multiple times in Orlando, Florida, after singing on June 10, 2016, while signing autographs. Grimmie had just performed and a shooter had specifically come to attack her. Grimmie’s brother tried to stop the shooter from further destruction by tackling him, according to sources. Christina was in critical condition for hours, but passed away on Saturday.

    Grimmie worked on Dancing with the Stars, and collaborated with singers like Selena Gomez and even opened for Rachel Platten on tour. She was releasing new music and recording regularly.

    Watch her version of “Titanium” from Dancing with the Stars here:

    Many have been inspired by her beautiful, angelic voice, and she appeared to have a Christian faith, as she did the song “In Christ Alone,” a famous hymn, on her YouTube channel. Grimmie drew millions of views on her videos and had so much talent, was so young and had so much going for her. Let us pray for her family, friends and fans. What sad news for us, but the good news now is that she is with the Lord Jesus in eternity.

    The singer was so influential that the hashtags on Twitter were the highest trending on social media when the tragedy initially took place. Fans and friends said #PrayforChristina, and also #RIPchristina after she passed.

    Please pray for her brother and those who were eyewitnesses. Pray for her family and those affected by this shocking news.

     

    We are confident, I say, and would prefer to be away from the body and at home with the Lord. (2 Corinthians 5:8)

     

    We know to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord (2 Corinthians 5:8), and we don’t mourn like the world mourns because we have hope in Jesus Christ (1 Thessalonians 5:14), but we still suffer a great loss of an amazing, talented young woman.

     

    …we do not want you to be uninformed about those who sleep in death, so that you do not grieve like the rest of mankind, who have no hope. (1 Thessalonians 5:14)

    1. Christina was absolutely incredible and my heart breaks to use the past terms of her name. Selena said “..she holds her faith so closely to her. And I think it’s not about a religion and it’s not about anything or good deeds. It’s just that she had faith…” What an example of courage. Truly she had faith, and we will see her again.

    2. Wow!! I heard that she was killed at one of her own signings. I don’t keep up with the pop culture, but I am so sad that she is gone. I have been praying for their family and specifically her brother. Somehow, I want to let them know that they are being prayed for but I am not sure how or anything so I just pray. I read she was a christian and am glad to call her a Sister in Christ.
