The family and friends of the beautiful and talented Christina Grimmie will finally get some closure, because as of June 14, plans have been finalized for her funeral. We have all the details on the private ceremony, right here.
Christina Grimmie, 22, will finally be laid to rest on June 17, after she was brutally murdered on June 11 following a concert in Orlando. The family has struggled to make plans to accommodate the many family, friends, and fans Christina had. Find out what they decided to do, here.
Thank goodness the Grimmie family can finally get some peace. A viewing of the slain singer and YouTuber will happen on Friday, June 17 at the Fellowship Alliance Chapel in Medford, NJ, according to The Associated Press and a memorial service will take place in the same church later that night. As for the funeral, “it’s just going to be a small, intimate gathering for her family and close friends,” a source told People.
Christina was a shining light in people’s lives, and due to her YouTube fame, success on The Voice, touring with Selena Gomez, and her strong presence in her religious community, she has a massive base of supporters, both famous and non, that want to pay their respects following her death. Her family was trying to find a way to let everyone do that, but it would be a zoo with that many celebrities in attendance, especially if it were open to the public.

One thing the Grimmie family luckily doesn’t have to worry about it money. Adam Levine, Christina’s former coach on The Voice, has offered to foot the bill for the whole thing. He loved Christina, and couldn’t bear to see her family struggle to bury her. We’re so glad they’re getting the help they need.
