Singer and The Voice contestant Christina Grimmie On Friday was shot and killed at an Orlando concert at the age of 22.
Adam Levine, the Maroon 5 frontman, and the late singer’s coach, who led her to a third place finish on season 6 of the NBC competition, has offered to pay for both the funeral and her mother’s flight to the event, according to Grimmie’s brother.
Marcus Grimmie wrote on Twitter and Facebook Saturday and Sunday .
“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. Words cannot express…literally I have no words.Levine was absolutely devastated and heartbroken. Christina was a natural, a gifted talent that comes along so rarely. She was taken from us too soon. This is yet another senseless act of extreme violence. I am left stunned and confused how these things can conceivably continue to happen in our world.I’m so blown away by everything right now. But all I can say is thank you. Christina will be missed and never ever forgotten.”
Amid the outpouring of support her family has received in the days since mass of donations that have since racked up online. The GoFundMe campaign set up to raise $4, 000 for the family the day of her death, has already raised over $125, 000.
