“In London now, in my hotel room. I landed to the news about Christina Grimmie and it is just absolutely heartbreaking,” Nick shared in a sad series of videos on Snapchat that he dedicated to Christina’s murder. “I met her for the first time at the iHeart Festival, she actually introduced me for my performance. So kind, so sweet.” UPDATE: Christina’s killer has been identified. Details HERE.
“My thoughts and prayers are with her family, friends, fans… this is really, really horrible,” Nick ended his touching message, clearly affected by the shocking devastation that unfolded at Christina’s concert in Orlando, Florida just hours before on June 10.
It was incredibly gracious of Nick to go on Snapchat and talk about Christina the way he did. It’s obvious that even in just one meeting she had an impact on him, which says a lot about who she was as a person.
As HollywoodLife.com previously reported, Christina had dreams of working with other artists — especially writing and producing music for them. Had things been different, maybe one day she would have had the opportunity to work with Nick, just like she hoped to work with Justin Bieber, Ariana Grande, and One Direction. So sad.
Our thoughts remain with Christina’s family, friends, and fans during this time.
