This is shocking news.

Quote: Singer Christina Grimmie is in critical condition after being shot following a concert in Orlando, Florida, on Friday night, police said.

The singer, a former contestant on "The Voice," and members of the band Before You Exit were signing autographs following a concert at Orlando's Plaza Live when a male suspect shot Grimmie, Orlando Police Department spokeswoman Wanda Miglio said at a news conference.

Grimmie's brother tackled the shooter who then fatally shot himself, Miglio said, calling it a "very tragic event."


Someone trying to live their dreams gets some attention, and becomes a target. It's tragic. I hope she recovers.

edit: The outlook appears bleak based on an eyewitness account in the Orlando Sentinel.

"She was shot at her show in Orlando and, unfortunately, didn't survive the gun shot wounds. We ask at this time that you respect the privacy of her family and friends in their time of mourning.

A lot of people grew up with Christina.

I vividly remember binge watching Christina Grimmie when I was 9, she had a relatively small amount of subscribers and she used her webcam and a sucky microphone to record her covers, and i watched her grow into someone with so much potential, but now that potential is gone

Madie Straubinger and I have been a fan of Christina's since we were silly little 6th graders and found this video. Im completely devastated. It seems like all the good people are being taken away from us this year. Christina Grime will surely be missed

You started 2010 and I found you and became a fan a year later.. I have watched and supported you for years.. A night ago i was just rewatching your videos from the voice and i was so proud on how far you've gotten. Was that a sign? From your (not so hd) bedroom videos with your black gloves and your signature hair (which i copied back when i was in hs) to your stardom. You were gone too soon my loves. It really hurts to know your gone. You promised you would be back here in the Philippines and it just wont be possible now ? You were such a sweet, loving, caring, dorky nerd. Why would anyone do that? I love you and rest in peace now my loves. We will forever love you and your dorky ways ?❤️ ‪#‎RipChristina‬

I cannot breathe or speak. I have never felt pain like this. You changed my life. Nothing will ever fill this void[Image: CkpzJuIWEAE1PFr.jpg]
Bria apparantly was a best friend
I'm at a loss for words, wow. She was way too young.
One of the most telling traits about her was that people who met her seemed to instantly love her and feel close to her.

So Sad, so senseless and tragic.

This makes me nervous for Haley. Any celebrity that has a loving beautiful soul that becomes the object of misguided false soulmate stalkers can be in jeopardy if not handled properly. Too many whackjobs in this world.
There are some rumors that it was an ex boyfriend. (From Selena Gomez' tour group, which would have more information than what is official, I'd imagine.)

edit: Nevermind, Bria said the boyfriend rumor wasn't true. Her other comments indicate it probably was an obsessive fan.

Don't understand what kind of monster...she's just a little girl.
