The death of Christina Grimmie has shocked the entertainment world.

The 22-year-old singer, who rose to fame as a contestant on NBC’s The Voice, was shot by a gunman following her concert on Friday night in Orlando, Florida.

Grimmie performed with the band Before You Exit at Orlando’s Plaza Live and stayed after the event to sign autographs for fans, when police say a man approached the singer and shot her.

The gunman fatally shot himself after Grimmie’s brother tackled him, according to authorities.

Grimmie was taken to the hospital, where she later died of complications due to injuries.

Grimmie had a massive social media following with more than three million YouTube subscribers. Grimmie’s management started a GoFundMe account to help support the singer’s family.

Voice coach Adam Levine posted a photo of the two on Instagram before Grimmie passed, saying “I’m sad, shocked and confused. We love you so much Grimmie. We are all praying hard that you can pull through this…this just isn’t fair.”
