Adam Levine, who served as Christina Grimmie’s coach when she appeared on The Voice, has offered to help out her family by paying for her funeral services.
The news comes from a post Grimmie’s brother Marcus shared on his Facebook page early Monday morning (June 13). “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,” Marcus wrote. “Now a friend just told me to look at the gofundme page and I see it is at 100k. Words cannot express…literally I have no words.”
On Twitter, Levine shared his condolences. “Behati and I are absolutely devastated and heartbroken by Christina Grimmie’s death. Our hearts go out to her family,” he posted.
In addition to Levine’s support, Grimmie’s manager Brian Teefey launched a GoFundMe for the slain singer’s family. Marcus also shared that Christina’s family will be holding a candlelit vigil for her this evening in Marlton, New Jersey.
