“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,”Grimmie's brother, Marcus Grimmie, wrote in a Facebook post late Sunday.

Grimmie was shot and killed on Friday at The Plaza Live in Orlando, Florida, while signing autographs for fans after performing with the pop-rock band, Before You Exit.

Levine spoke out shortly after the tragedy to express his condolences.

“Behati and I are absolutely devastated and heartbroken by Christina Grimmie's tragic death," Levine said in a statement obtained by ET.

"Our hearts go out to her family. Christina was a natural, a gifted talent that comes along so rarely. She was taken from us too soon. This is yet another senseless act of extreme violence. I am left stunned and confused how these things can conceivably continue to happen in our world."

Grimmie’s brother has since posted details on a vigil that will be held for her on Monday in their hometown of Marlton, New Jersey.

“There will be a candlelight vigil being held at the blue barn in Marlton. All are welcome and I will be there as well. Would love to see anyone and everyone. Thanks all,” he wrote.

"Her brother is a hero and possibly saved countless other lives," a tweet posted by the Orlando Police Department read over the weekend. "He is not injured."
