Adam Levine offers to pay for Christina Grimmie funeral

In the wake of the senseless murder of former The Voice contestant Christina Grimmie following her concert in Orlando on Friday night, fans and musical colleagues lined up in droves to pay tribute to her memory.

Out of concerns for her safety, Gomez cancelled all meet and greets for the show (Christina was shot during a meet and greet by a fan), but she did stop and take a moment to remember Grimmie during the concert, and the moment is very powerful. She died early Saturday.

She was a contestent of Season 6 of NBC's "The Voice" where her performance of "Wrecking Ball" during a blind audition got a Four Chair turn.

Maroon 5 singer Adam Levine is offering to pay for the late Christina Grimmie's funeral, Grimmie's brother Marcus reported on his Facebook page.

This weekend, 22 year old The Voice and Youtube star, Christina Grimmie, was shot to death after performing a show in Orlando, FL.

She lived in Evesham and attended Cherokee High School, before moving to southern California in 2012. Loibl was then taken to the ground by Grimmie's brother, and in the ensuing melee, shot and killed himself.

While she won admirers for her covers of established hits, Grimmie was intent on writing her own songs that expressed her own interests, "not just dancing and getting drunk and blah-blah-blah", as she told Entertainment Weekly.

They believe he traveled to the venue specifically to kill her, but are not sure of his motive. By showing she wasn't an over-achieving diva, but a fan of popular video games as well as eating at Buffalo Wild Wings, Grimmie revealed a personal side behind her voice.

Chelsea Tabisz, who now holds Grimmie's old spot as female lead in the church's worship team band, said that while she only met Grimmie once, the young star made an impression on her. While she was a YouTube star, he seemed to be a shadow of Grimmie's online presence. Mina said that he was not aware of metal detectors and people are not patted down.

When asked about her love of "dorky things", Grimmie responded, "Well, I'll never stop playing video games that's for sure, haha". There's no evidence Grimmie and Loibl knew each other, police said.
