When A Person Dies   Leave a comment

With the night winding down and checking on Facebook, I saw the trending story of Christina Grimmie shot while signing autographs after her concert in Florida. Her brother tackled the shooter. The shooter shot himself moments after. Part of me is a little desensitized to such news. Unfazed, I browsed away online. A few hours later, the Facebook page of our local radio station broke the news for me that the 22-year-old singer passed away. That’s when I paused and took a moment to reflect on what just happened.

She is considered a pioneer on YouTube as one of the early adopters using the platform to entertain viewers and fans. She competed on The Voice in 2014. Adam Levine signed her to his label despite placing third in the competition. She just released her new album in February this year. I watched a few snippets of her video vlogs and songs. Such talent at such a young age.

I didn’t follow her on YouTube or watched The Voice as much as my mom. Reading all the nice things she’s done over the years places me in sort of a rut. Was I better off not knowing about her? I wish I knew more of her and all the kindness and wonderful things she shared with the world and her fans before this tragedy.

I’m praying for her friends and family.

 

RIP
