A private funeral and burial for Christina took place on June 16, reps confirmed. Friends and family of Christina’s gathered to pay their respects to the young singer, who was only 22 when she lost her life on June 11. The service was generously paid for by Christina’s mentor on The Voice, Adam Levine. Marcus, Christina’s brother, shared news of the Maroon 5 frontman’s sweet gesture on his Facebook page: “I found out this morning that Adam Levine personally called my mother and said he will pay for her funeral and her plane flight. I was blown away,” he wrote.
It is awful that the popstar’s light was extinguished in such a gruesome manner; she was attending a meet and greet and signing autographs for her fans after her concert in Orlando, FL when a man walked up and cruelly shot her multiple times, before shooting and killing himself. Though Christina was rushed to the Orlando Regional Medical Center, she sadly did not survive her brutal injuries.
