Adam Levine Offers to Pay for ‘The Voice’ Alum Christina Grimmie’s Funeral

After the death of former “The Voice” contestant Christina Grimmie on Friday night, her former coach Adam Levine has offered to pay for her funeral as well as her mother’s flight to the funeral, according to Grimmie’s brother. A GoFundMe page was set up to support the Grimmie family and now has more than surpassed the original $4,000 goal, coming in at over $175,000.

“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,” Grimmie’s brother, Marcus Grimmie, wrote in a Facebook post. “Words cannot express… literally I have no words.”

On Saturday night, Levine took to Facebook to express his sadness over the loss of his former “The Voice” trainee.

“Christina was a natural, a gifted talent that comes along so rarely. She was taken from us too soon,” he wrote. “This is yet another senseless act of extreme violence. I am left stunned and confused how these things can conceivably continue to happen in our world.”

Grimmie was fatally shot after performing at an Orlando, Fla., concert while signing autographs for fans. She was 22. The shooter has been identified as Kevin James Loibl.
