Christina Grimmie was killed during an autograph session after a performance in Florida this past Friday.
Christina, a YouTube sensation who went on to success as a Top 3 contestant on The Voice, described herself as a “full-on Christian who loves Jesus” and loved the Bible.
Several outlets are reporting that the motive behind her murder may have been her outspoken faith in Christ.
The Santa Monica Observer shared what T.J. Wilkins, another Voice competitor, wrote: “What I’ll remember most about you is our conversation about faith and the love of Christ.”
Christina wasn’t shy about sharing her faith, or tweeting it:
A GoFundMe page was set up to help Christina’s family with final expenses. To date it has surpassed the goal of $4000, raising over $123,000 – a testament to the love so many people had for her.
Our prayers, thoughts and love are with Christina’s family and close friends.<3
