Adam Levine, who coached Christina Grimmie during her time on The Voice, has stepped up and offered to pay for the funeral of the young singer, who was gunned down after a show in Florida on Friday night.
Adam didn’t make a big deal of the donation himself — the announcement was made by Christina’s brotherMarcus, who tackled the gunman during the attack at Orlando’s Plaza Live. Marcus logged onto Facebook to write, “I found out this morning that Adam Levine personally called my mother and said he will pay for her funeral and her plane flight, and I was blown away.”
He added that a GoFundMe page to raise funds for the Grimmie family has now surpassed $100,000, saying, “Words cannot express…literally I have no words. I promise both my parents and I will read every one of these personalized messages. I’m so blown away by everything right now. But all I can say is thank you. And Christina will be missed and never ever forgotten.” (Billboard)
