Generous Soul Adam Levine To Cover Cost Of Christina Grimmie’s Funeral

As celebrities and fans alike continue to mourn the pointless death of singer Christina Grimmie – who was shot by Kevin James Loibl, 27, as she signed autographs after her Orlando, Florida show on Friday night – Adam Levine, who mentored her on season six of ‘The Voice’, has stepped forward to support her family.

Grimmie’s brother Marcus, who has been hailed as a hero for crash-tackling the gunman to the ground before he managed to hurt anyone else at The Plaza Live theatre, revealed that the A-lister is generously covering the cost of the 22-year-old’s funeral, to be held later this week in her hometown. 
“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,” he wrote in a Facebook post.
Adam was one of the first to express his heartbreak at the loss of Grimmie, calling her “a natural, a gifted talent that comes along so rarely.”

“She was taken from us too soon. This is yet another senseless act of extreme violence,” he added. “I am left stunned and confused how these things can conceivably continue to happen in our world.” 

A GoFundMe page set up by Grimmie’s manager Brian Teefey to help her family move out of their current home as they deal with the tragedy has raised more than US$133,000.

Loibl’s motives remain a mystery to the general public, though police have confirmed he travelled to Orlando with the sole purpose of killing the singer.
Presumably being hounded by media, his family posted a note to the door of their home in St. Petersburg, expressing their sympathy to her family and friends and fans.
It read:
“Deepest sorrow for lost to the Family, Friends and Fans of the very talented, loving Christina Grimmie. No other comments.”
Hours before the shooting, Grimmie posted a video asking nearby fans to come and support the show. 

RIP to an awesome talent.
