Celebrities React to the Shocking Shooting & Killing of Christina Grimmie

By  | 

Less than 24 hours ago, The Voice alum Christina Grimmie expressed her excitement over seeing and performing for fans at The Plaza Live in Orlando, FL, along with the guys of Before You Exit:

Sadly, only hours later, she was shot by a yet-to-be-identified suspect before the gunman opened fire on himself. The 22-year-old singer, who once toured with Selena Gomez, was sent to the hospital in critical condition, while the gunman was pronounced dead.

But fans had hope for the brunette beauty, trending #PrayForChristina on Twitter. In a devastating announcement, though, her rep confirmed that she passed away, “It is with a heavy heart that we can confirm that Christina has passed and went home to be with the Lord. She was shot at her show in Orlando and, unfortunately, didn’t survive the gun shot wounds,” the rep wrote. “We ask at this time that you respect the privacy of her family and friends in their time of mourning. If you’d like to give back to Christina’s family in her memory, please consider donating to the families GoFundMe page in their time of need. https://www.gofundme.com/christinagrimmie.”

Since then, practically all of Hollywood has expressed their mournful thoughts:
