A talent has been taken from us.
Christina Grimmie has been murdered by 27-year-old Kevin James Loibl right when she was signing autographs after a show at the Plaza Live theater on last Friday.
According to Aceshowbiz, hundreds of mourning fans and friends attended a hometown vigil at Eveham’s memorial complex, New Jersey for the 22-year-old multitalented singer on Monday night, June 13.
Evesham Mayor Randy Brown who also attended the vigil then said on his speech that Christina’s brother, Marcus Grimmie is a hero after tackling the shooter and saving the lives of other people.
“Your heart can be empty because you can’t see her or you can be full because of the love you shared. You can remember only that she’s gone or you can cherish her memory and let it live on. You can cry and close your mind, be empty and turn your back, or you can do what she would want smile and open your eyes smile love and go on.”
Marcus then broke the silence and said, “She loved this town, she loved this state, she loved singing, she loved the Lord and she loved me and she was my baby sister.”
He then continued, “About four miles away from here where we were staying, there was a huge tragedy to Orlando, to the LGBT community and to the whole world. I mean, 50 people dead, who knows who is injured. I have no words.”
“Adam Levine paid for Christina’s funeral. Selena is singing a song and crying. These people didn’t have that and we are blessed to. She’s in a better place…. Thank you to everyone once again. I wish I could elaborate more, you guys didn’t know her like I did, so thank you. This is awesome.” he added.
