Last weekend was indeed shocking as one of the music industry's well-loved artists was killed: We send out our love and respect to Christina Grimmie.
She's too young, she had so many more dreams to fulfill, and yet now those will just remain to be dreams. But the legacy she left in this world, to her fans and her family, will live on.
With much love in their hearts, some of her closest friends expressed their grief online. Here are some of the most heartwarming messages for a great talent and beauty, gone too soon. You will be remembered, Christina.
1. From The Voice coach, Adam Levine.
2. From Charlie Puth. During his New York concert, he also dedicated his song, See You Again, saying, "I was reading the news last night and heard that my good friend Christina Grimmie was killed, and I want to dedicate this song to her tonight. I've been upset about this all day, mainly because I just never got to say what I wanted to say to her, and I feel like this song perfectly captures that."
3. From Bria Kelly.
4. From Rachel Platten.
5. From Before You Exit, whom she shared the stage before the shooting happened.
6. And finally, from Selena Gomez. She broke down while performing Transfiguration by Hillsong. She began with, "When she was 14, we met her, and my parents and I signed her. One thing about Christina and her family is that she holds her faith so closely to her. And I think it’s not about a religion and it’s not about good deeds. It’s just that she had faith, and I don't really understand how this really happened, but I would like to dedicate this next song to her."
