GoFundMe page for former 'The Voice' finalist Christina Grimmie passes its target

Last night, former 'The Voice' finalist Christina Grimmey was shot and killed while signing autographs for fans outside of a concert in Orlando, Florida. 

A GoFundMe page has been set up by Brian Teefey of LH7 Management and the message on the page explains that the money raised will go directly to Grimmie's family to assist them "in their time of need":

"Words cannot begin to describe the pain I am feeling. I learned this business through the eyes of a father and Christina was like a second daughter to me. All I wanted to do was assist her in achieving her musical dreams while protecting her from the pitfalls associated with the business. I never could have imagined this horrific event being one of the pitfalls needing to be avoided."

"In Christina’s honour I have created a Go Fund Me page to assist her family in their time of need. As family Mother, Father, and Brother made the ultimate family sacrifice to support Christina on her musical journey. They did nothing but love her and support her as family the best they knew how, the only worry I want them to have at this point is that of recovery. Grimms I love you, and miss you beyond comprehension."

The fundraising goal was set at $4,000 but so far a total of $13,107 has been raised. You can click here to donate now.
