Services for slain ‘Voice’ singer Christina Grimmie on Friday (PHOTOS)
MEDFORD — Family and friends are gathering in New Jersey to remember "The Voice" singer Christina Grimmie.
The 22-year-old was shot to death last week as she signed autographs after a show in Orlando, Florida. Her assailant fatally shot himself after being tackled by her brother.
A viewing was scheduled Friday at Fellowship Alliance Chapel in Medford, followed by a memorial service Friday night.
Among those offering their condolences to Grimmie's family were Alissa and Joseph Canto. The husband and wife from outside Rochester, New York, drove 7 hours to attend the services at Fellowship Alliance Chapel in Medford.
The couple, both 24, says they've been fans since Grimmie launched her YouTube channel when she was in high school.
Grimmie lived in nearby Evesham Township, a small community about 20 miles from Philadelphia, before moving to Los Angeles in 2012.
The YouTube star was widely known from her appearances on NBC's "The Voice" two years ago.
