After Christina Grimmie’s murder, her manager Brian Teefey, who also happens to be Selena Gomez’s stepfather, organized a GoFundMe page to support the late singer’s family. 

“In Christina’s honor I have created a Go Fund Me page to assist her family in their time of need,” Teefey wrote in a statement. Teefey comments that the Grimmies “made the ultimate family sacrifice to support Christina on her musical journey.”

People note that Christina Grimmie sang backup vocals for Gomez and toured with her on her We Own the Night tour. Gomez gave her own tribute to the late Voice contestant’s passing on Twitter, sharing a photo of the two of them goofing around with each other. 

“Words cannot begin to describe the pain I am feeling,” Teefey added. “I learned this business through the eyes of a father and Christina was like a second daughter to me.”
