A Year Ago Tonight, Christina Grimmie Played Her Final Show Here In Orlando

The internet fell in love with Christina Grimmie because of her voice.

Eventually, her voice was heard on the actual reality singing competition show, The Voice where she joined Team Adam.

He and Christina formed a bond that was infectious and he took the young pop star under his wings.

Eventually, she released her debut EP and began the process of being a successful recording artist who was on the rise.

On June 9th, 2016, 2 concerts were playing in town, Grimmie’s show at the Plaza Live, and super-star Selena Gomez who was playing at the Amway Center.

Many people were attending both shows complete with opening acts and meet and greets.

Christina was doing a meet and greet outside the Plaza Live when tragedy struck and an assailant shot and killed her. The gunman eventually turned the gun on himself.

I woke up the very next day (I go to bed early) and read that Christina had been shot and killed and was in disbelief. I had been a fan since her humble beginnings and followed her career along the way.

She was a bright star with the future in her hands. Her vocal talent was undeniable and her personality was infectious.

She will be greatly missed.
