Adam Levine To Pay Funeral Expenses For Former Voice Contestant Murdered Over The Weekend.

22-year-old singer Christina Grimmie was murdered while signing autographs after a show in Orlando late Friday night.  She was very popular on YouTube, and was a finalist on the sixth season of “The Voice.”

Christina had been performing at the Plaza Live Theater with the band Before You Exit.  She was sitting in the lobby after the show when a man approached her with two guns, two loaded magazines, and a hunting knife.

Sadly, no one noticed until it was too late.  After he opened fire, her brother, Marcus, heroically tacked him.  There was a struggle  and the shooter fatally shot himself.  Christina was rushed to the hospital, and died a few hours later.
