Christina Grimmie may be gone, but her beautiful soul and powerful voice will forever be remembered.
Since news broke that The Voice alum died at age 22 after being shot following a concert in Orlando, Florida, on Friday, many of her fans, friends and celebrity colleagues took to social media to pay their respects, including her Voice family.
Blake Shelton, a mainstay coach on the reality TV competition, tweeted his condolences early Saturday morning. "I'm stunned and disgusted and heartbroken that we lost that sweet little girl...," he wrote. "Keeping @TheRealGrimmie family in my heart and mind."

Adam Levine was the first to post about Grimmie, shortly after the initial news that she had been shot following her concert. "I'm sad, shocked and confused," he captioned a pic of the two. "We love you so much Grimmie. We are all praying hard that you can pull through this...this just isn't fair."
As ET previously reported, Grimmie was performing at the Plaza Live with pop-rock band Before You Exit. According to the Orlando Police Department, the show ended around 10 p.m. ET, and Grimmie and her band stayed to sign autographs for fans. She was shot by a white male from another region of Florida who traveled to Orlando to commit the crime.
"Today we lost an angel, sister, and a beloved friend. #RipChristina," a message on Before You Exit's Twitter page read.
Before stunning audiences on The Voice stage, Grimmie was best known by her YouTube username, "zeldaxlove64." The New Jersey native began posting videos to her channel in 2009, most of which were covers of popular songs, including Miley Cyrus' "Party in the USA," Justin Bieber's "One Time," and Bruno Mars' "Grenade."
In addition to her Voice family, many of Grimmie's fellow YouTube stars and celebrity friends and fans took to social media to share their heartfelt tributes.

I remember geeking out and telling you how I would watch your YouTube videos in high school, and how you were so kind and responded to a stranger with love. This is unfair and heartbreaking. We lost one of the most talented singers and one of the kindest hearts. We will all miss you @therealgrimmie ❤️ #ripchristinagrimmie
I had the privilege of getting to spend time with @therealgrimmie last September. Not only was she talented, she was one of the sweetest & nicest girls I had ever met. I remember saying to my mom, "She's the kind of girl I want to be friends with". Even though I didn't know her well... I am absolutely devastated. When I heard the news this morning, I just wept... how could something like this happen to such an unsuspecting, undeserving good person? I'll never understand. Sending my deepest condolences to her friends & family. All my love to you Christina, may your spirit soar. #RIPChristina 🙏🏼❤️
I was gonna see you tomorrow. You couldn't wait to come back home from tour. Tomorrow was going to be the first day of production & writing on what was going to be the biggest album of the decade. We were gonna climb the mountain together. The amount of sadness and shock I am filled with is unbearable. This is something I will never recover from. I love you, Christina Grimmie. You will always have a piece of my heart. I feel you with me now. You are watching over me & I will live my life with you beside me, in spirit. Love you so much, Spoop. Ill see you on the other side. 💜 To anyone who needs me, I will be taking time off of social media. Friends & family, call or text. #RIPChristinaGrimmie #ChristinaGrimmie
I'm shocked and horrified. and angry. how many times are we as a nation going to read a horrific story like this, where someone uses a gun to kill an innocent person, and DO NOTHING. I demand gun control. this is sickening. I am so so so sorry for Christina's fans and family. my heart is with you. she was a beautiful spirit and will not be forgotten.
