Ex-Voice contestant and YouTube star Christina Grimmie has lost her battle to survive after a gunman attacked her after a show in Orlando, Florida in the early hours of this morning.
The singer, aged just 22, had performed just before Before You Exit in Plaza Live in the town, and went out with them to sign autographs after the show when the gunman attacked at around 22.45 local time. Reports have said the attacker walked towards Grimmie and shot her point blank, before her brother tackled him to the ground. The attacker then took his own life also.
Just hours earlier, she posted a video to Facebook to invite her fans to the performance:
Our thoughts are with her family and fanbase at this time.
