Christina Grimmie has passed away at the age of 22 after being shot at a concert in Orlando
Grimmie who auditioned for the 6th season of The Voice amazed judges with her rendition of Miley Cyrus’ wrecking ball earning her a four chair turn around. She would be a part of team Adam and make it to the final 3. She released her debut album with love in 2013.
Grimmie and the pop/punk band Before You Exit were signing autographs and selling merchandise after their show at the Plaza Live Theater when a man walked up to her and shot her, Orlando Sgt. Wanda Miglio said in a news conference.
Grimmie’s brother tackled him. The suspect then shot himself.
“This should have been something that was fun and exciting,” Miglio said, “and for something like this to happen is just a tragedy.”
Grimmie was taken to the Orlando Regional Medical Center. No one else was reported injured.
