Re: Christina Grimmie (RIP)

The manager was actually very close to the Grimmie family. His wife (Selena Gomez' Mom) was the one who discovered Christina's Youtube and she and her husband managed her career ever since. Christina and Selena were very close also.

I therefore believe that the manager acted in good faith and just wanted to create a space for fans to grieve and leave messages and for those who can, to donate something for the family. I could imagine the family opening up a fund in Christina's name. As far as I was aware Christina, who was very close to her family, still lived at home. I read that they now want to move away which is understandable.

A vigil took place yesterday in her hometown in NJ.

This is what her brother had to say about the gofundme page:

I first heard from my sisters manager, Brian Teefey, that he will be making a gofundme to help our family move out of our current house and to take care of the funeral, and I figured why not, and I'm not about sharing that kind of stuff and I'm not a fan of handouts at all.
I found out this morning, that Adam Levine personally called my mother and said he will pay for the funeral and her plane flight, and I was blown away. Now a friend just told me to look at the gofundme page and I see it is at 100k. Words cannot express...literally I have no words.
I promise both my parents and I will read every one of these personalized messages. I'm so blown away by everything right now. But all I can say is thank you. And Christina will be missed and never ever forgotten.
Love you Christina
Please do not feel the need to donate anything at all. Please. Just leave a kind word, message or picture in the comments or message me and sign this petition to help Christina possible be remembered in the next legend of Zelda game, her favorite game of all time.
