The Voice alum Christina Grimmie has died after being shot following a concert in Orlando, Florida, the singer's rep confirmed on Friday. She was 22.
"It is with a heavy heart that we can confirm that Christina has passed and went home to be with the Lord," her rep said in a statement. "She was shot at her show in Orlando and, unfortunately, didn't survive the gun shot wounds. We ask at this time that you respect the privacy of her family and her friends in their time of mourning."
The Orlando Police Department also issued a statement late Friday, confirming her death: "With deep regret, Christina Grimme has succumbed to her injuries." A preliminary investigation is currently underway.
