Adam Levine Christina Grimmie Tribute


Adam Levine performed a tribute to the late Christina Grimmie on Tuesday’s live episode of “The Voice.” Watch below.

As Gossip Cop reported, 22-year-old Grimmie was killed last June by a deranged “fan” at a meet and greet in Florida. She was best known for competing on season 6 of “The Voice” in 2014, during which she placed third. She was a member of Levine’s team, and the two remained close following her run on the show. Levine said in a statement last year that he was “heartbroken” over Grimmie’s death.

Now on tonight’s broadcast of “The Voice,” host Carson Daly announced, “As you know, family is very, very important to us here at ‘The Voice.’ Last year we tragically lost one of our own, the incredibly talented and beautiful Christina Grimmie. Tonight, in memory of our good friend, and along with Christina’s family, we’re honored to help announce the creation of the Christina Grimmie Foundation, benefiting those impacted by gun violence and families just like her own affected by breast cancer.”

Daly pointed out Grimmie’s parents and brother in the audience, thanking them for “letting us be part of this very, very important moment.” He then introduced Levine, who said to the family, “God, I loved her so much. I’m talking to you guys, specifically.” The Maroon 5 front man went on, “I miss her. It’s unfair that she’s not here, and we’re gonna sing her a little song tonight, and I’m gonna be singing every word to her, in her honor.”

Levine, who paid for Grimmie’s funeral, and his current artists for season 12 then sang “Hey Jude.” Following the performance, the coaches and studio audience gave a standing ovation in honor of Grimmie and her family. Daly then revealed an album of the young singer’s music will be released in June, and poignantly said, “Christina, we feel your spirit here at ‘The Voice’ every single day, and we love and miss you.” Check out the videos below.
