“The Voice” contestant Christina Grimmie, 22, was shot after a meet-and-greet in Florida on Friday.
Adam Levine was Grimmie’s mentor on “The Voice” in 2014.
Levine took to Instagram to share his feeling hours before Grimmie’s untimely death.
“I’m sad, shocked and confused. We love you so much Grimmie,” Levine wrote.
“We are all praying hard that you can pull through this…this just isn’t fair.”
On Sunday evening, Christina’s brother, Marcus, posted about various efforts created to help his family on his Facebook page.
One person’s efforts truly stood out.
“I found out this morning, that Adam Levine personally called my mother and said he will pay for the funeral and her plane flight, and I was blown away,” Marcus wrote.
According to the post, Brian Teefey, Grimmie’s manager, made a GoFundMe to help the Grimmie family.
“Grimms I love you, and miss you beyond comprehension,” Teefey wrote on the GoFundMe page.
In a matter of two days, $169,203 was raised, exceeding the $4,000 goal.
“Now a friend just told me to look at the gofundme page and I see it is at 100k. 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,” he wrote.
Marcus encouraged people to share beautiful memories of his sister in the comments section and to sign a change.org petition to help remember her.
“Please do not feel the need to donate anything at all. Please. Just leave a kind word, message or picture in the comments or message me and sign this change.org petition to help Christina possible be remembered in the next legend of Zelda game, her favorite game of all time.”
