Christina frequently gets referred to as an angel and it’s easy to see why. Her fellow competitor from The Voice Jacquie Lee even recorded a stunning tribute for Christina called “Somebody’s Angel” that was released on Dec. 15. The music video featured Jaquie’s artwork along with headline on gun violence. Christina’s memory will definitely live on with her fans and loved ones.
