Singer Christina Grimmie was only 22 years old when she was murdered at a concert in Orlando, Florida. Two years after the rising star’s tragic death, her family suffered another devastating blow.
In 2010 Christina Grimmie would post a video of herself singing to YouTube that would change her life. The clip of her cover – she sang “Party in the U.S.A.” by Miley Cyrus – has racked up nearly 13 million views. It also caught the eye of the management agency that signed her afterward.
The next year, Grimmie put out an E.P., won an American Music Award and took her talents on the road with superstar Selena Gomez. The pair toured together through the U.S. and Canada on Gomez’s We Own the Night Tour.
