Christina Grimmie’s family was in the audience at “The Voice” on Tuesday, April 25, when Adam Levine addressed them directly before paying a touching tribute to their daughter.

Christina was just 22 years of age when Kevin Loibl, 27, shot her twice while signing autographs for fans on June 10, 2016, outside the Plaza Live Theater in Orlando. Loibl then turned the gun on himself. At the time, Levine offered to pay for Grimmie’s funeral, along with her mother’s travel expenses.

Levine spoke directly to Grimmie’s parents and brother in the audience, saying how much he loved her and that he misses her.

Christina’s mother was tearful and moved as Levine told her family it is unfair that she was not there, adding that they were going to sing a special little song for her, with every word of that song being in her honor.

Levine and three of his current coaching team, Mark Isaiah, Jesse Larson and Lilli Passero then went on to give a moving performance of the Beatles’ song “Hey Jude.”
