Justin Bieber is among the many who are mourning “The Voice” contestant, Christina Grimmie.
At a concert in Winnipeg, Canada, Bieber got emotional and he was reportedly heard saying, “Grimmie, can you hear me?” before breaking down in tears and collapsing to the stage floor while singing “Purpose” in her memory.
Bieber and Grimmie knew each other for some time. She was a good friend of his ex, Selena Gomez and Gomez’s stepfather was Grimmie’s manager.
Grimmie was shot and killed as she signed autographs for fans following a concert in Orlando, FL last week.
Following her death, close celebrity friends paid tribute to the late singer. Gomez was seen sobbing at a Miami concert on Saturday and her “The Voice” coach, Adam Levine, has generously offered to pay for her funeral.
