Christina Grimmie’s funeral to be held in Medford on Friday
Funeral services for "The Voice" star Christina Grimmie will be held later this week near her New Jersey hometown.
The 22-year-old singer was shot to death last week as she signed autographs after a show in Orlando. Authorities say she apparently had no personal connection to the man who shot her and then fatally shot himself after being tackled by her brother.
A viewing will be held Friday at Fellowship Alliance Chapel in Medford. A memorial service will be held there Friday night.
Grimmie was a YouTube star who was widely known from her appearances on NBC's "The Voice" two years ago. She lived in Evesham Township, a small community about 20 miles from Philadelphia, before moving to Los Angeles in 2012.
