Christina Grimmie was fatally shot on 6th of June right after her performance in Orlando, and was declared dead in the hospital.
The happening of this unfortunate event led to an outbreak on the social media platforms with a large number of people coming forward and paying their condolences and tributes to the late 22 year-old singing sensation who was mercilessly shot by a “deranged” fan.
Maroon 5 lead vocalist, Adam Levine has come forward in support of the family and has assured to deal with the expenses involved in Christina Grimmie’s funeral.
Adam Levine had called up Christina Grimmie’s mother and had personally assured her that he’ll be looking after the funeral’s expenses including her flight.
“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. Now a friend just told me to look at the gofundme page and I see it is at 100k. Words cannot express…literally I have no words.”, Marcus posted on his Facebook account.
Look at Marcus Grimmie’s Facebook post here:
Adam Levine and Christina Grimmie have a history which goes back to the sixth season of The Voice (US) which took place in 2014, where Christina Grimmie impressed all the judges on the show but eventually chose to go in Adam Levine’s squad.
The Maroon 5 lead vocalist, who is 37 years old, coached and helped Grimmie to evolve as a singer on the sixth season of The Voice in 2014, and helped her bag the third pot on the show.
We think it is a very sweet gesture by Adam Levine and in this time of atrocity when the family must be going through a lot of emotional struggle and hardships, he took up to ease the monetary expenses involved in and around the 22 year-old’s funeral and surely marks his special sentiments for Christina Grimmie and proves how wholeheartedly he was connected to Cristina Grimmie.
