Family of Slain Christina Grimmie Vows to Continue Releasing Music for ‘Frands’
Nearly five months after the tragic murder of Christina Grimmie at a fan engagement in Orlando, the late singer's family has committed to continuing to release the singer's yet-unheard music with her beloved "frands."
Grimmie's father, mother and brother — Bud, Tina and Marcus, respectively — shared a note through the former Voice finalist's Twitter account last night (November 1) through which they thanked fans for relentless support. And, to keep the spirit of Christina alive, they vowed to share more of the singer's gift.
"We would like to express our deepest appreciation for the love and support you have shown our Christina during her brief but richly filled life," the note reads. "She loved her ‘frands’ and tried every day in every manner she could to find new ways to reach, please and inspire them through her God-given gift of music."
"As her family, we are fully committed to continuing her legacy as she would have wished and will be constantly updating you, the frands, with all Christina-related activities, including her unreleased music and new mixes of existing music," it continues. "We send our sincerest love and thanks once again for allowing her the privilege of living out her dreams through and with you!"
Grimmie's family announced in July that they planned to release four music videos Grimmie had recorded in conjunction with her Side A EP shortly before her death. They've so far unrolled "Snow White" and "Anybody's You," which you can watch below.
