The Voice's Christina Grimmie shot while signing autographs 9:54 AM

"She was taken from us too soon".

According to the Gospel Herald, Grimmie described herself as a "full-on Christian who loves Jesus" and loved the Bible, and sang for Jesus.

Christina Aguilera also paid tribute to Grimmie, calling her a "beautiful member of #TheVoice family & true #Fighter".

In 2014, she was a contestant on the U.S. version of The Voice.

Former Voice US contestant Christina Grimmie has died after being shot while signing autographs following a concert in Florida yesterday by a man who later killed himself.

Gomez sat at the piano and wiped away tears as she sang Hillsong Worship's "Transfiguration". "I think she just had faith and I don't really understand how this really happened, but I would like to dedicate this song to her". She was only 22. "I never could have imagined this horrific event being one of the pitfalls needing to be avoided", he wrote on GoFundMe. At the time of the shooting, 120 people were inside the venue, which was being patrolled by unarmed security guards, Mina said.

"She just had a really powerful voice".

The singer also shared a heartfelt message of her own, writing on Twitter, "My heart is absolutely broken".

He added that police were now searching through the Loibl's phone and computer to find a possible motive for the murder.

They say Loibl had two loaded handguns, extra ammunition, and a hunting knife when he entered the concert venue, The Plaza Live, by himself.

Police credit Marcus' heroic actions for preventing the gunman from hurting others.

Marcus Grimmie penned an emotional post, remembering his sister as his partner in life. "We appreciate everyone's understanding and support during this traumatic time", said a statement on its website.

Authorities explained that "the suspect traveled to Orlando apparently to commit this crime, and then had plans to travel back to where he came from". The police chief wouldn't elaborate further.
