Watch VidCon 2016's Emotional Tribute to Christina Grimmie

The beautiful tributes to Christina Grimmie keep pouring in the weeks after her tragic death, and the latest comes from VidCon. During the seventh annual online video conference over the weekend, co-founders Hank and John Green presented their special montage dedicated to the late singer.

The video features clips of Christina's stint on The Voice's sixth season, various concerts, her Youtube performances, goofing around with friends and lots of genuine smiles. Instead of asking for a moment of silence in honor of the singer, who was fatally shot during a meet and greet in June, Hank and John asked the audience for a round of applause.

While choking up, Hank stated:

“Her innovation and her generosity will affect this industry and this community forever, and I’m proud of that. Her memory will always be with us, but a bunch of her friends reached out to us because they wanted to share a tribute that they were putting together for her memory.”

Along with VidCon, artists like Selena GomezJustin BieberFifth Harmony and Twenty One Pilots have all paid tribute to Christina. Click here to read our essay about the singer's music, and watch Death Cab for Cutie's Nick Harmer's reaction to the tragic Orlando events, which happened just a day after Grimmie's death, below:
