Selena Gomez misses her dear friend Christina Grimmie.
The “Come and Get It” singer paid an emotional tribute to her late friend at a concert in Miami on Saturday night.
“One thing about Christina and her family is that she holds her faith so closely to her,” she said to the crowd and wiped away tears. “I think it’s not about a religion and it’s not about good deeds. I think she just had faith and I don’t really understand how this really happened, but I would like to dedicate this song to her.”
Gomez then turned to her piano and performed an emotion rendition of her song “Transfiguration.”
Hours after learning about the tragic death of her friend, Gomez took to Twitter to share her grief with fans.
“My heart is absolutely broken. I miss you Christina,” she wrote with the funny throwback of the two together.
Gomez also shared a message from her stepfather, Brian Teefey, who managed Grimmie and set up a GoFundMe page to benefit the family.
“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,” he wrote. “I never could have imagined this horrific event being one of the pitfalls needing to be avoided.”
