‘The Voice’ honors NJ’s Christina Grimmie in song & foundation
'The Voice' continues to honor the memory of Christina Grimmie. With her Burlington County family in the audience, Adam Levine spoke Tuesday night on the NBC show about missing the young singer from Evesham. The pop star then led his team in the Beatles' classic, 'Hey Jude.'
This June will mark one year since Grimmie was gunned down by a man outside a concert in Orlando, Florida. 'The Voice' host Carson Daly also announced the Christina Grimmie Foundation. The organization will offer support to victims of gun violence, as well as those impacted by breast cancer. Christina's mother, Tina Grimmie, has been battling the disease for years.
In a video posted with the launch, Marcus Grimmie shares memories about his sister. He also talks about the inspiration behind a designer shoe collection helping raise money for the foundation. For full information, visit christinagrimmiefoundation.org.
