"I wanted to just reach out and say a gigantic thank you. Thank you. You all, fans, friends, framily, have honored Christina on her one-year anniversary," Tina says in the clip. "Just want to say thank you. So many people did so many things to honor her." A longer video was shared on The Voice contestant's official Facebook page.

Grimmie, 22, died on June 10 at the Plaza Live Theater in Orlando during a meet-and-greet, where she was shot twice before an obsessed fan took his own life.
