Christina Grimmie's Family Pays Tribute To Late Singer With Anime-Inspired Music Video

She would've turned 23 on March 12.

Christina Grimmie's music continues to live on in a new posthumous music video released by her family on March 10.

Grimmie, the YouTube star and former contestant on The Voice, was shot and killed after her Orlando concert last June. In honor of what would have been her 23rd birthday, Grimmie's family released an anime-inspired music video for her single "Invisible."

"As many of you know, Christina LOVED video games and had a special fondness for anime," they said in the description of the video. "We created this video as a special tribute to honor that love, and her desire to always bring light and love into the heart of others."

The music video, directed by Stephen Leonard of Giant Pancake, imagines Grimmie as an anime character who has the power to destroy evil creatures with beams that shoot out of her hands. With the help of a pink creature and a hoverboard, Grimmie is able to do what she's sought out to destroy.

Happy birthday sis. I beat Zelda for you at 12 o'clock this morning. I know you would be proud and that you would have beaten it before me. Miss you so much. Never felt so good beating Ganon ๐Ÿ’š
