Slain ‘The Voice’ singer Christina Grimmie has a huge following here in the Philippines, and she was ultimately loved by her Filipino fans.

As a farewell to Christina, Team Grimmie Philippines organized a small tribute for the Youtube superstar.

Grimmie was shot dead on June 11 at a concert venue in Orlando, Florida. The gunman was identified as Kevin James Loibl.

Filipino fans of Grimmie gathered at the Luneta Open Air Auditorium and held a memorial for Christina, Saturday afternoon.

Although they’re still in pain from the sudden passing of their idol, pinoy fans of Grimmie happily ‘let go’ of her as they send  out balloons to the sky. Fans also offered prayers and songs for her.


Back in 2014, Grimmie performed several shows here in the Philippines which for her was an overwhelming experience.
