I was in a mall when I read a random status about shooting in Orlando. Immediately I opened a news website praying 'please let this be fake'. I sat in my car and broke down. My heart bleeds to even think about the loss. I have been following Chritsina Grimmie since 2010, when her cover for "Just a Dream" became even more popular than the actual singer Nelly. I followed this chirpy and beautiful person whose voice touched me deep down. Christina was a famous Youtube singer before The Voice happened and she had a huge fan following even then. I have virtually seen her grow into a lovely 22 year old, with a charming personality and stunning vocals. She was so unlike other pop stars.
Her songs have been my ringtone, my comfort zone, an inspiration that hard-work can make all your dreams true.
I grieve her loss ... I just can't believe that she is gone!! This powerhouse of talent who had so much potential to be a much bigger star, so shockingly taken away from this world.
If you haven't heard about this amazing talent, do listen to some of these. Rest in Peace, Christina. You will always, always be loved and remembered.
