Watch Christina Grimmie's First Posthumous Music Video, 'Snow White'
By Sophie Schillaci
Christina Grimmie is living on through her music.
The late singer -- who was tragically shot and killed in June during a fan meet-and-greet -- had filmed a four-part visual EP titled The Ballad of Jessica Blue shortly before her death. Now, Grimmie's team has released the first new video from the collection.
"Snow White" was revealed by Billboard on Thursday. Grimmie sings, acts, and dances in the project, which follows "Jessica Blue," Grimmie's main character, as she battles heartache and writer's block.
"The story follows Jessica Blue through the songs 'Snow White,' 'Anybody's You,' 'Deception,' and 'Without Him' on her journey to find her voice and her path in life only to find out they are one in the same," an update on Grimmie's verified Twitter account reads.
"Christina shot these videos back in February with about six hours of choreography and four days of filming before she left for the WildFire tour," it continues. "Everyone worked so hard on this project, putting in extra-long days on set to ensure we got the best quality project we could for the minimal budget we had. I couldn't be more proud of her and everyone involved for the labor of love that was put into this project."
The remaining videos are expected to be released weekly through the month of August, with Grimmie's team asking fans to tweet #ChristinaGrimmie as they watch.
"The decision to release these videos was a collective decision made by her family and team," her rep told ET. "She put a lot of passion and hard work into these videos and we felt that her fans (and Christina) deserved to see the end product that was due to release shortly after she returned home from tour."
