Grimmie, 21, was fatally shot while signing autographs following a concert at The Plaza Theater in Orlando, Florida, last June. The "Invisible" singer had just finished performing when she was gunned down by a shooter who took his own life moments later.

Last December, Grimmie's family filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the venue and the show's promoter AEG Live. The suit claims AEG "owed a duty" to the YouTube star "to use reasonable care to protect her at concert venues she performed at" during her tour.
