(MARLTON, NJ) — The New Jersey town in which singer Christina Grimmie grew up will hold a candlelight vigil for her tonight.
Evesham Township Mayor Randy Brown says the vigil will be held at 8:45 p.m. at the town’s Memorial Complex in Marlton, NJ.
Grimmie, 22, was shot and killed Friday night in Miami while she was signing autographs following a concert there with her band, Before You Exit. The former YouTube star was best-known to most as a contestant on NBC’s The Voice, where she placed third during the show’s sixth season, in 2014.
Also, Grimmie’s manager, Brian Teefey, has created a GoFundMe page “to assist her family in their time of need.” Teefey is also pop singer and actress Selena Gomez’s stepfather, and both he and Gomez were very close to Christina.
“They did nothing but love her and support her as family the best they knew how,” Teefey writes of Grimmie’s family, adding, “the only worry I want them to have at this point is that of recovery.”
As of Monday at 11 a.m. ET, the page had raised nearly $126,000, more than 31 times the initial fundraising goal of $4,000.
