Justin Bieber sings, “Grimmie, can you hear me” during his performance of “Purpose” at his latest show.
22-year-old The Voice finalist Christina Grimmie was taken from us last Friday when a man walked up to her and shot her. Grimmie’s family is still trying to put the pieces together, and they’re doing so with the support of the world and her fellow music community. Adam Levine is paying for her entire funeral, and a GoFundMe account for her family has received more than $120,000 in donations since news broke. Meghan Trainor, Charlie Puth, Kesha, Nick Jonas and Fifth Harmony have all highlighted Grimmie during their recent performances, and we can add one more to the growing list: Justin Bieber.
Bieber laid on the ground during his performance of the album title track “Purpose” during his Saturday concert at the MTS Centre in Winnipeg, Canada, and can be heard saying:
“Grimmie, can you hear me?”
Bieber reportedly met Grimmie through Selena Gomez, whose stepfather managed her. Gomez dedicated her performance of “Transfiguration” to the late singer.
