Adam Levine served as a coach and mentor to Christina Grimmie on “The Voice” in 2014, and now he’s offering help to her family following the death of the 22-year-old singer-songwriter.
“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,” her brother wrote in a Facebook post.
The singer’s manager, Brian Teefey, set up a GoFundMe account that’s already raised more than $140,000.
On Monday night, Marcus addressed friends, family and fans who attended a candlelight vigil in his sister’s hometown of Evesham, New Jersey.
It was Marcus who tackled Kevin Loibl, the man who shot his sister, moments before Loibl turned the gun on himself. He told the crowd gathered to honor the young star by how she treated the gunman the night of her death.
“She was arms open wide … so she had no idea,” he said. “She treated everyone the same.”
