UPDATED at 10 a.m. PT: Grimmie’s reps tell People that whoever posted the tweet that read “The end” after her death hacked into her account.
Celebrities and fans are turning to Twitter to mourn the loss of YouTube sensation and “The Voice” Season 6 contestant Christina Grimmie, who was shot and killed Friday night by a gunman at The Plaza Live in Orlando, Florida.
Grimmie, 22, finished third during Season 6 of NBC’s “The Voice” in 2014, competing on the team of Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine. She burst onto the scene via YouTube as a teenager, racking up millions of views with her renditions of hit songs.
The official Twitter account of “The Voice” has gone black and other members of the show have expressed their condolences. Grimmie’s verified account posted a seemingly final message hours after her death was announced.
There are no words. We lost a beautiful soul with an amazing voice. Our hearts go out to the friends, fans and family of @TheRealGrimmie.
