Adam Levine offers to pay for Christina Grimmie's funeral

Over the weekend, tragic news of Christina Grimmie's untimely death broke online. 

The former contestant on 'The Voice' was gunned down by a 27-year-old man Kevin James Loibl at her concert in Orlando while she was signing autographs, and her brother Marcus has spoken out about the aftermath of this horrific situation. 

Marcus Grimmie took to his official Facebook page and thanked his sister's manager for setting up a GoFundMe page in her honour, which passed its goal of $4,000 and is now at $173,221, and explained that 'The Voice' coach Adam Levine has personally offered to pay for Grimmie's funeral. 

"I first heard from my sisters manager, Brian Teefey, that he will be making a gofundme to help our family move out of our current house and to take care of the funeral, and I figured why not, and I'm not about sharing that kind of stuff and I'm not a fan of handouts at all."

"I found out this morning, that Adam Levine personally called my mother and said he will pay for the funeral and her plane flight, and I was blown away. Now a friend just told me to look at the gofundme page and I see it is at 100k. Words cannot express...literally I have no words."

"I promise both my parents and I will read every one of these personalized messages. I'm so blown away by everything right now. But all I can say is thank you. And Christina will be missed and never ever forgotten. Love you Christina."
