Christina Grimmie's brother discusses late singer and foundation in her memory

- Marcus Grimmie, brother of the late singer Christina Grimmie, joined us Thursday to discuss the beautiful life of his sister and announced exclusively on Good Day LA an upcoming fundraiser in her honor.

In June 2016, Christina was only 22-years-old when a fan shot her after a concert in Orlando.

Her music career was taking off. She was a fan favorite on NBC's "The Voice" and stole our hearts when she performed on Good Day LA.

The Christina Grimmie Foundation was launched earlier this year to honor her legacy -- and will be hosting its first official fundraiser Oct. 25 at the Taglyan Cultural Complex in Hollywood.

Tickets will be available at

“It happened. It was terrible, but at the same time, this foundation is making us move forward in a positive way,” Marcus Grimmie said.
