‘The Voice’ Christina Grimmie Tribute: Her Family Shares Their Best Memories Of The Singer
Just last night on The Voice, they revealed all the details about it and it’s a truly inspiring foundation that we all should be involved in.
“The Christina Grimmie Foundation’s mission is twofold”, the website reads. “To provide financial, emotional and encouragement support to individuals and families who suffer from the devastating effects of gun violence; and support for families facing breast cancer diagnosis.”
Her family shares about the foundation: “Our vision is that through the Christina Grimmie Foundation, people will be able to experience the same type of love and support we felt when we were faced with the shock of losing our precious daughter.
“Not only can we relate, but we want people to feel the same way that we felt; held up and supported during the darkest time of our lives, that they would not fall apart.”
Last year, Christina was shot and killed during one of her performances in Florida.
Adam was Christina‘s coach on season six of The Voice and helped her finish in third place.
“God, I loved her so much,” Adam said on tonight’s show. “I am talking to you guys specifically, I’m talking to everybody. I miss her. It is unfair she is not here. We are going to sing a little song. I am going to be singing every word to her in her honor. Thank you for being here. Christina, we love you.”
The singer, who passed away last year, is going to be honored by the Humane Society with the Impact Award.
Christina‘s family will be on hand to accept the honor, for her devotion to protecting animals.
Just before Christina was killed, she and her fans won the $250,000 grand prize for the Humane Society of the United States in a “social giving” charity event.
And after she was shot, The Humane Society created the Christina Grimmie Animal Medical Fund, which provides veterinary attention and ongoing care for its most critical animal rescue cases.
“She didn’t just possess a beautiful voice – she was a beautiful soul who used her talents to spread a message that we humans should not mete out violence to animals. We will carry her message forward, despite the pain we feel,” Wayne Pacelle, president and CEO of the Humane Society said in a statement at the time.
The Humane Society of the United States Farm Animal Protection Gala will be held on April 22nd.
