Adam Levine was devastated to hear about Christina Grimmie, 22, and called her mother and offered to cover all funeral expenses. He likely feels like this is the least that he can do to help her family during this incredibly hard time.

Adam was one of the first to express his heartbreak at the loss of Grimmie, calling her "a natural, a gifted talent that comes along so rarely".

The Voice coaches Adam Levine, Blake Shelton and Christina Aguilera reacted to the tragic death of the show's family member Christina Grimmie. Christina was a beloved contestant on the show in 2014's season six, making it to third place in the competition under coach Adam Levine, 36.

Brian has since set up a GoFundMe crowdsourcing page to help support Christina's family.

Selena [Gomez] is singing a song and crying [during her concert]. She not only knocked the song out of the park, she got the rare "four chair turnaround", when all the coaches whip around to see the face that belongs to an incredible voice. "I'm so blown away by everything now".

The gunman, Kevin James Loibl, walked up to Grimmie and shot her while she was signing autographs inside The Plaza venue immediately after her performance.

Christina was rushed to hospital, where she was eventually pronounced dead.
