This year wasn’t kind to many people, including Selena Gomez. The 24-year-old singer had her fair share of ups and downs, more downs than ups. She was at the mercy of several dating rumors, various scandals and, ultimately, parted ways with the spotlight to focus on her mental health in a rehab center. Despite everything, Selena came out on top and showed the world that 2016 might actually have been her “Revival” after all.

Every year, award shows honor the celebrities that passed and Sunday night’s Emmy Awards was no different. Tori Kelly performed “Hallelujah” while a video montage played featuring late actors, musicians, writers, directors and more stars. Many of celebrities we lost this year were included, except for late singer Christina Grimmie.
In June, Christina Grimmie was shot and killed at the hands of a gunman following a concert in Florida. She was a former contestant on NBC’s “The Voice,” and the show’s family, so to speak, is still remembering Christina.
Coaches, both past and present, have reportedly planned a tribute for late singer. According to fan accounts, Miley Cyrus, Alicia Keys, Adam Levine, Blake Shelton and the coaches from previous seasons will come together to honor Christina. No official details have been released just yet, but the reports don’t seem far-fetched.

Selena Gomez was one of many stars to feel the shocking aftermath of Christina Grimmie’s tragic death. The “Hands To Myself” singer had strong personal and professional ties to Christina as she came on tour with her a handful of times. Selena’s family has also raised money for the late singer’s family, and the support doesn’t end there.
Christina’s team began releasing a four-part music video series from the singer’s most recent EP. The first installment came out just a few days ago with the others soon to follow. Selena shared the link to her Twitter account and is still showing love and support for her late friend and fellow musician.

Sunday morning, Tori Kelly created a song that she wrote in honor of the late singer Christina Grimmie who was tragically murdered by an obsessed man. The singer posted the YouTube video to her Twitter account revealing that she wrote the song after Christina’s death. “my heart was & is still so heavy when i think of her not being with us,” she wrote for the video’s description.
Though the song was written after Christina’s death, Tori does take the time to write that due to this month’s recent events, the song has even more meaning: “i’m overwhelmed at the pain & the brokenness in the world today, & so this is really just me grieving. at all of it. life is so short.”
