Adam Levine mentored Christina Grimmie on The Voice and the Maroon 5 singer is still looking over the late singer, along with her loved ones.

Grimmie's brother Marcus wrote on his Facebook page that Levine reached out to his family over the weekend after hearing the news that the 22-year-old singer was shot and killed late Friday night, June 10. He expressed his gratitude to the singer and those who have contributed to a GoFundMe page to aid him and his family:

"I found out this morning, that Adam Levine personally called my mother and said he will pay for the funeral and her plane flight, and I was blown away. Now a friend just told me to look at the gofundme page and I see it is at 100k. Words cannot express...literally I have no words."

"I promise both my parents and I will read every one of these personalized 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 ever forgotten. Love you Christina."

Grimmie was a member of Team Adam on Season 6 of The Voice in 2014 and wound up in third place.
