VidCon Pays Special Tribute to Christina Grimmie
Christina Grimmie was a young, talented singer who got her start on “The Voice” and YouTube. She was murdered earlier this month outside of a concert venue in Florida while signing autographs for fans.
The YouTube community and her fans and friends are all still reeling from her sudden and tragic death, but came together to create a tribute to her for VidCon this year. As Hank Green explains in the video, a bunch of Grimmie’s friends and people who had worked with her recorded a version of her song “With Love,” and played it over a clip collection reflecting back on her far too short life. The young star had a lasting impact on everyone who knew her, and this tribute is only one of many that have been dedicated to her memory in the few weeks since her death.
Grimmie can be seen giving a touching performance of “With Love” at the YouTube Space in LA below.
