AceShowbiz - There was a touching moment on "The Voice" on Tuesday, April 25. Family of late season six finalist Christina Grimmie made an appearance on the show to announce the creation of Christina Grimmie Foundation in honor of the late singer. One of the coaches, Adam Levine, later paid an emotional tribute to Christina with a touching performance with his team.
Host Carson Daly announced, "As you know, family is very, very important to us here at 'The Voice' and last year we tragically lost one of our own, the incredibly talented and beautiful Christina Grimmie." He added, "Tonight, in memory of our good friend and along with Christina's family, we're honored to help announce the creation of the Christina Grimmie Foundation, benefiting those impacted by gun violence and families just like her own affected by breast cancer."
Carson then invited Adam to join him onstage. The Maroon 5 vocalist told Christina's family, "God, I loved her so much. I am talking to you guys specifically. I'm talking to everybody. I miss her. It is unfair she is not here. We are going to sing a little song. I am going to be singing every word to her in her honor. Thank you for being here. Christina, we love you."
Within moments, final members of Team Adam (Lilli Passero, Jesse Larson and Mark Isaiah) took the stage with their coach to perform The Beatles' "Hey Jude". Their soulful and heartfelt performance left Christina's family in tears.
Christina Grimmie was gunned down at the Plaza Live theater in Orlando on June 10, 2016 during meet-and-greet. She was shot four times by an obsessed fan Kevin Loibl before the man ended his own life. Christina's EP "Side B" is available on iTunes, and her full-length album will be released on June 2.
