Selena Gomez’s stepfather surprised Christina Grimmie’s family.
The world lost a beacon of light on Friday night when singer Christina Grimmie was shot dead during a meet and greet in Orlando. In the wake of this tragic event, many have come forward to share their love for Grimmie.
Christina’s The Voice coach Adam Levine created an Instagram post in her memory and is even offering to pay for the young woman’s funeral. Countless YouTubers have shown their support on social media, honoring the fact that Christina was a YouTube sensation and all-around amazing woman. Selena Gomez, Grimmie’s close friend also took a moment to pay tribute to Christina, during her Miami concert, she dedicated the song Transfiguration to her.
Selena, as well as her stepdad Brian Teefey are offering their support and love to Christina’s family. Brian Teefey was Grimmie’s long-time manager, who discovered her on YouTube and soon after became her representation. “I’m so blessed that they’re in my life, Christina revealed this during an interview with seventeen. They’re literally like a family — Selena has been so encouraging ever since we got hooked up. It’s crazy! It’s very much a fairy tale.
Teefey aims to continue being there for the Grimmie family although Christina is no longer with us.
Brian started a GoFundMe campaign with the goal of raising $4,000 to help Christina’s loved ones live a worry-free life during this time of grief. Since then, the page has garnered over $150,000.
