According to Access Hollywood, there will be a viewing this coming Friday at the Fellowship Alliance Chapel in Medford, where a memorial service for Christina Grimmie will be held later that night. Christina, 22, was shot to death after a concert last week while signing autographs for fans outside the Plaza Live concert venue in Orlando. The incident happened at around 10:30 p.m. after the concert performed by Grimmie and the band Before you Exit. According to police there around 60-100 people attended the concert, but there were only a few remaining when the shooting occurred.

Senseless killing of a talented young woman.

As reported on Blasting News, her killer was identified as 27-year-old Kevin James Loibl of St. Petersburg, Fl.


According to authorities, Grimmie had no personal connection to the man who first shot her, and then killed himself, after being tackled by Christina’s brother Marcus Grimmie. Orlando police said that the actions of Christina’s brother Marcus may have saved several lives. Orlando police still have no motive for the senseless crime and investigations are ongoing.

Humble beginnings on YouTube.

Christina’s father noticed her talent for singing at a young age and she reportedly took up playing the piano at age 10. She previously lived in Evesham Township, close to Philadelphia, but moved to Los Angeles in 2012. Christina later became a star on YouTube and finally became well known and popular for her appearances on the NBC show “The Voice” two years ago where she finished in third place.
