VIDEO Selena Gomez weeps during tribute to slain Voice star Christina Grimmie


During her tour stop in Miami Saturday night, Selena Gomez paid an emotional tribute to singer and longtime friend Christina Grimmie.

Gomez told her fans while seated at the piano for the beginning of a cover of Hilltop Worship’s “Transfiguration” which lead into her own “Nobody”:

“When she was 14, we met her and my parents and I signed her. One thing about Christina and her family is that she holds her faith so closely to her. And I think it’s not about a religion and it’s not about anything or good deeds. It’s just that she had faith, and I don’t really understand how this really happened, but I would like to dedicate this next song to her.”

Grimmie was shot to death Friday night after her performance at the Plaza Live in Orlando. A lone gunman killed her while she was greeting and interacting with fans. The murderer took his own life after Grimmie’s brother, Mark, tackled him.

This morning Americans woke to the tragic news that the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history happened the following night in Orlando, where another lone gunman opened fire at Pulse Nightclub. As of this report, 50 people lost their lives with over 50 others injured.

    Honestly cannot believe something so senseless. I used to watch her on YouTube all the time. She seemed so kind and good-hearted.

    Selena doesn’t even care, this is all just for show and publicity. RIP Sweet angel <3

    • Go away

      Oh shut up loser they’ve been friends for years

        Why didn’t we ever see them together, dumbass.

        Why all of a sudden since this tragedy happened does Selena mention her? If they were close as Selena says they were, why didn’t she have her on her tour? Why until there Instagram pics of them together?

        Maybe because she didn’t even care. Until now.

          Not true. She did tour with Selena before years ago. They’ve known each other for 8 years and her stepdad is the one that discovered her on YouTube. He was also her manager and said she was like a second daughter to him.

        Years? More like 48 hours.
