What terrible news to wake up to. The Voice finalist, Christina Grimmie, was shot dead last night after a concert in Orlando, Florida. The multi-genre 22-year-old singer-songwriter was approached by a 21-year-old man wielding two handguns and a hunting knife during a signing with fans. The perpetrator was tackled by Grimmie’s brother immediately after committing the fatal shooting.
During the struggle that ensued, the assailant also shot and killed himself.
You might recall, we sat down with Christina to discuss her EDM debut collab with Diamond Eyes just last year. So this comes as particularly devastating news to us here at Your EDM.
The attack’s motive remains unclear, but we will update this post with further information as it becomes available. Keep the talented young girl’s friends and family in your thoughts & prayers during the coming days.
