Tori Kelly Wrote A Song Tribute To Christina Grimmie And It’s Seriously Moving
"My heart was & is still so heavy when i think of her not being with us."
Tori Kelly has written a song tribute to Christina Grimmie, and it’s seriously moving.
Posting the tribute song on YouTube, Tori wrote in the notes section under the video: “This song was written for Christina Grimmie after she passed away tragically. I needed to write this song. Thank you to my good friend, Zac Poor, who was brave enough to take on the challenge of writing it with me.
“My heart was & is still so heavy when I think of her not being with us. However, I am still comforted knowing that I’ll get to see her again someday in heaven. My prayers go out to her family & loved ones.
“Even though this song had specific meaning, more recently I’m overwhelmed at the pain & the brokenness in the world today, & so this is really just me grieving. At all of it. Life is so short.
“Thanks for listening, I love you guys.
"He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.” ~ Revelation 21:4”
Watch Tori Kelly’s tribute song to Christina Grimmie below:
Christina had been performing with Before You Exit at The Plaza Live in Orlando, before heading to meet fans and sign autographs at a merchandise table. The BBC reports that a man opened fire on her while she was signing autographs, and was 'tackled' by Christina’s brother (who has been praised for his bravery) before the assailant shot and killed himself.
Christina, 22, tragically died of her injuries in hospital.
