Christina Grimmie is gone but not forgotten. The Voice alum, whose tragic death was mourned by celebrities including Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez, will live on in new, never-before-seen music videos, reported E! News.
Announced via Twitter, the new music videos will consist of a four-part mini series recorded by Grimmie before she began her last tour. The series will be included in a “visual celebration of Side A,” which has been named The Ballad of Jessica Blue.
The singer’s team worked intensely on the project, seeking to create the best possible music video quality to honor Christina. The Twitter statement announced the new music videos shared the pride and love that went into the releases.
“Everyone worked so hard on this project putting in extra long days on set to ensure we got the best quality project we could for the minimal budget we had. I couldn’t be more proud of her and everyone involved for the labor of love that was put into this project.”
Fans can look forward to viewing the quartet of videos starting on August 11, when “Snow White” will debut. The other three videos (“Anybody’s You,” “Deception,” and “Without Him”) will continue to be released weekly through September 1.
Grimmie’s autopsy report recently was revealed, indicating that she died from “gunshot wounds of head and chest,” with the death categorized as a homicide. It was Christina’s brother Marcus who identified her body. He was there when she was shot.
“The death of Christina Grimmie… witnessed to have been shot by another and subsequently transported to the hospital, is the result of a gunshot wounds of the head and chest. The manner of death is homicide,” stated the report.
The horrific tragedy occurred early last month. The singer was involved in a meet-and-greet with fans following an Orlando show. A male suspect shot her before shooting himself. Grimmie was transported to a hospital prior to the pronouncement of her death.
Christina’s brother had the heartbreaking task of honoring his sister at a memorial service.
“I don’t have anything to say, I don’t have words still and it’s a good and bad thing,” shared Grimmie’s brother.
“All I’m going to say is thank God for the mark that she left on this world.”
A representative for Grimmie talked with ET about the project and the decision to release the music videos posthumously.
“The decision to release these videos was a collective decision made by her family and team,” clarified the rep. “She put a lot of passion and hard work into these videos and we felt that her fans (and Christina) deserved to see the end product that was due to release shortly after she returned home from tour.”
After Grimmie died, many celebrities honored her talent. Among them, Selena Gomez (who had become her friend) and Justin Bieber made time during performances to remember Christina and mourn her death, noted USA Today.
Selena and Christina were connected personally and professionally, because the late singer’s manager Brian Teefey is Gomez’s stepfather. Trying to honor Grimmie during a concert just one night after she was killed, Selena began to weep on stage.
“The one thing about Christina and her family, is that she holds her faith so closely to her,” shared Gomez. “It’s not about her religion, and it’s not about good deeds. It’s just that she had faith. And I don’t really understand how this happened, but I would like to dedicate this next song to her.”
The song that she dedicated to Grimmie was “Transfiguration.”
Bieber also showed his emotions when he too honored Christina during his performance.
“Grimmie, can you hear me?” crooned Justin as he was singing “Purpose” during a concert.
Bieber also reportedly cried as he mourned the loss of the singer.
