Adam Levine Offers to Pay for Christina Grimmie's Funeral

#TheVoice judge offers support to his former contestant's family following her death.

Following the tragic murder of singer Christina Grimmie in Orlando, Florida on Friday, Adam Levine has offered to pay for her funeral. The Maroon 5 frontman served as the late singer's coach when she competed on Season 6 of The Voice. On Monday, her brother Marcus confirmed the singer's donation on Facebook, which comes after Christina's manager, Brian Teefey, had set up a Go Fund Me page to help the family in the wake of the tragedy.

"I found out this morning, that Adam Levine personally called my mother and said he will pay for the funeral and her plane flight, and I was blown away. Now a friend just told me to look at the gofundme page and I see it is at 100k. Words cannot express...literally I have no words," Marcus wrote on Facebook. "I promise both my parents and I will read every one of these personalized messages. I'm so blown away by everything right now. But all I can say is thank you. And Christina will be missed and never ever forgotten."

After news broke of Christina's death, Adam headed to Twitter to remember the singer. She was also remembered by fellow The Voice coaches Blake Shelton and Christina Aguilera.

The 22-year-old was killed on June 10 while signing autographs for fans after her concert at The Plaza Live theater when a suspect, Kevin James Loibl, approached her and shot her. He fatally shot himself after he was tackled by Marcus. According to CNN, she later died at the hospital. "Christina was more than my sister. She was a partner in life," Marcus later wrote on Facebook. "A superstar. A goofball. Introverted. And a friend to everyone. Genuinely. But above all...she was my baby sister."
