It has been one year since the death of Christina Grimmie, and the late singer’s family has taken the time to thank fans for lifting their spirits and supporting them throughout the most difficult time in their lives. Christina was only 22 years old when she was killed by an armed man at a meet and greet after performing a concert in Orlando, Florida last summer. Now, her loved ones want her fans to know how important their support has been for the past year.
“We want to take this moment to say thank you to Christina’s legion of fans worldwide and all the partners who contributed and are still contributing to her legacy. Your prayers, love, encouragement and support have been felt by us as a family and we are humbled and deeply appreciative,” the family said in a statement on Twitter. “We too, are still healing, but know that we love each and every one of you. Thank you for your support!”

The Voice singer may not be here with us, but there is absolutely no doubt her music lives on. The family launched her debut record – titled “All Is Vanity” – on June 9. The album consists of 10 songs, all which Christina was excited for her fans to hear.
