Christina Grimmie crowdfunding tops $16,000 in 12 hours

A crowdfunding campaign for Christina Grimmie, who was tragically killed last night, has topped $16,000 in donations in just twelve hours.

Following the news of her death, Brian Teefey, who worked with the star through LH7 Management, launched the campaign to raise funds for Christina’s family.

The former The Voice contestant, who gave CelebMix an exclusive interview just two weeks ago, was taken to a local hospital in Florida after being shot multiple times last night (June 10) after a gig with Before You Exit.

She sadly died at just 22 years of age.

In a GoFundMe statement, Brian said: “Words cannot begin to describe the pain I am feeling. I learned this business through the eyes of a father and Christina was like a second daughter to me.

“All I wanted to do was assist her in achieving her musical dreams while protecting her from the pitfalls associated with the business.

“I never could have imagined this horrific event being one of the pitfalls needing to be avoided. In Christina’s honor I have created a Go Fund Me page to assist her family in their time of need. As family Mother, Father, and Brother made the ultimate family sacrifice to support Christina on her musical journey.

“They did nothing but love her and support her as family the best they knew how, the only worry I want them to have at this point is that of recovery.

“Grimms I love you, and miss you beyond comprehension.”

You can donate to the fund on its official GoFundMe page.
