Levine, who was Grimmie’s voice coach while she competed on the hit TV show, The Voice, “I found out this morning that Adam Levine personally called my mother and said he will pay for her funeral and her plane flight, and I was blown away,” shared Marcus on his Facebook page. In addition to Levine’s generous contributions, the GoFundMe page set up by Christina’s manager, Brian Teefey, has raised over $100,000 – money which will be primarily used to cover the rest of the funeral expenses.

The rest of the money will probably be donated to a charity of choice. “Words cannot express. Words cannot express… literally I have no words. I promise both my parents and I will read every one of those personalyzed messages. I’m so blown away by everything right now. But all I can say is thank you. And Christina will be missed and never forgotten,” wrote her grief-stricken brother. Levine also shared his grief on social media, posting a picture of himself and Grimmie from her time on the set of The Voice.

“Behati and I are absolutely devastated and heartbroken by Christina Grimmie’s death. Our hearts go out to her family,” the caption under the photo read. Many artists from the music industry also paid tribute to Christina. Singer Selena Gomez broke down as she performed “Nobody” in honor of her friend, during her concert in Miami on Saturday night. Singer Charlie Puth, who shares a kinship with Grimmie, performed ‘See You Again’ in Christina’s honor.

The song was originally written as a tribute for Fast and Furious actor Paul Walker. “When she was 14, we met her and my parents and I signed her. One thing about Christina and her family is that she holds her faith so closely to her. And I think it’s not about a religion it’s not about anything or good deeds. It’s just that she had faith, and I don’t really understand how this really happened, but I would like to dedicate this next song to her,” Gomez said during her show.

In honor of her memory, friends and family organized a candlelight vigil in her hometown of Eversham Township on Monday night. Fans could attend, light a candle in honor of the singer, and say goodbye to a talented voice that silenced all too soon. “Thank you for all who came out tonight. It was awesome. If anyone has any pictures or anything from the night I’d love to see them. Sorry if I missed you. Thanks for loving my sister like I did everyone,” wrote Marcus on his Facebook page.
