Grimmie Thursdays are back

Hey guys! Christina’s team gave us a big present today. Do you remember Christina’s youtube cover of “Halo” by Beyoncé? It was taken down a long time ago but.. you can now enjoy it once again! And there’s more to come ♥ They will be re-releasing more every other Thursday. Be sure to check #GrimmieThursday Youtube playlist to see what’s up.

Also, Marcus Grimmie did an interview with Hollywood Life about the inaugural event of the Christina Grimmie Foundation, he mentioned that they want it to be an annual event so don’t worry, if you can’t make it this time, you will have another chance! We will see some never seen before content ( *crossing fingers from Cry Wolf* ) and, All Is Vanity will finally be available as a physical copy.

I also want to talk about the return of Grimmie Thursday, when videos on her YouTube channel are released. 
An idea we’ve had is — there are a lot of videos that have been taken down, and we finally got all the issues squared away. We’re going to be relaunching a lot of Christina’s cover songs. It’ll be nostalgic for the old fans, and something fresh for the new fans! [Ed. note: today, Sept. 13, marks the reinstating of the series.]

Will there be any never-before-seen content?
Keep your eyes open, yes!

Awesome. What can we expect from the CD version of the digital album?
Well, it’ll have her favorite photo shoot, the last one she did. As a lot of her fans know, she was a stickler for the fancy photo shoots because she always just wanted to wear a t-shirt and video game hat! But this one, I remember her raving about. She loved the photographer and how good he was with her, and the work they did. I think everyone will really like the photos.

The Voice special announcement

The Voice made a beautiful heart-toughing tribute to Christina, Adam Levine and his team sang Hey Jude by The Beatles.

The special announcement of the Grimmie family was the introduction of Christina Grimmie Foundation.

The foundation is focused on two main things:

  • to provide financial, emotional and encouragement support to individuals and families who suffer from the devastating effects of gun violence
  • support for families facing breast cancer diagnosis

From the official website:

The Foundation is committed to helping impacted families experience the same type of love and support Christina Grimmie’s family experienced from friends, family and the community at large when faced with the shock of losing their precious daughter to gun violence.

The Foundation is also committed to creating a community of compassion and support for breast cancer patients and their families, in the same way that Christina Grimmie supported her mother, Tina Grimmie, during the most difficult times that accompanied her mother’s breast cancer diagnosis.

 

You can also subscribe to emails that will send you information about the foundation events and announcements.

Christina’s collection of shoes

Christina will have her own shoes collection. It will be made by Q by Pasquale. The prices range from $550.00 to $1,495.00. A large portion of the proceeds will be going to The Christina Grimmie Foundation.

About the collection

“Christina Grimmie created an incredible legacy in a short amount of time: As a YouTube sensation; with a top 3 finish on the hit TV show, The Voice; as an opening act for Selena Gomez; and performing on her own tour throughout the United States. Tragically, she was killed while greeting fans in June 2016. Pasquale created the Q by Christina Grimmie footwear collection as a heartfelt tribute to this dynamic performer. He used inspiration from her passions, as well as her favorite colors and styles, to develop this collection of luxurious footwear that is 100% made in Italy by the world’s best craftsmen. And, thanks to her family, a large portion of the proceeds will be going to The Christina Grimmie Foundation, which will provide support for families of victims of violent crimes.”
