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."
I'm stunned and disgusted and heartbroken that we lost that sweet little girl... Keeping @TheRealGrimmie family in my heart and mind.
Host Carson Daly revealed that he was "still in shock" over the news. "She was special. Had IT," he wrote. "Talented. Kind. Funny. Loving. Courageous. We hurt w her family."
"Our artists & families is my territory on #theVoice," Daly added. "I take great pride. Knowing them. Hosting them. Supporting them. It's not TV. It's real."
Cassadee Pope, who won season three of The Voice, also expressed her disbelief via Twitter. "I can't believe this," she shared. "My heart goes out to Christina's family and friends. What a sweetheart she was. The world lost a shining star."
I can't believe this. My heart goes out to Christina's family and friends. What a sweetheart she was. The world lost a shining star. 😔
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."
