Christina Grimmie's Family Honors The One-Year Anniversary Of Singer's Death With Heartfelt Message To Fans

"We too, are still healing, but know that we love each and every one of you."

It's hard to believe it's been a full year since Christina Grimmie's untimely murder, but what isn't surprising is how much the love for this singer is still alive and well to this day. The former The Voice contestant's family took time out over the weekend to send a heartfelt message to their dearly beloved's fans to let them know they are seen, felt, and heard.

"We want to take this moment to say thank you to Christina's legion of fans worldwide and all the partners who contributed and are still contributing to her legacy," the post, which was shared on June 11, reads. "Your prayers, love, encouragement and support have been felt by us as a family and we are humbled and deeply appreciative. We too, are still healing, but know that we love each and every one of you. Thank you for your support!"

This isn't the first tribute to the singer, who would have been 23 this year had she not been shot and killed after a concert in Orlando while signing autographs for her fans on June 12, 2016. After the tragedy Selena Gomez dedicated a song to Grimmie and earlier this year Adam Levine, who was the up-and-coming singer's coach on The Voice, performed a song in honor of Grimmie on the NBC show.

Grimmie's family has also been honoring their loved one by posthumously releasing songs, followed by a music video, and ultimately a full-length album. The album, titled All Is Vanity, was released last Friday and features 10 of Grimmie's tunes that she wrote herself. Listen to it in full here:

The venue where Grimmie was killed at also honored the late singer on the anniversary, too. With "Remember Christina" on the marquee, fans gathered outside to light candles, leave flowers, release balloons, and even sing one of Grimmie's songs in honor of the young woman they all looked up to. 

It's clear that, though Grimmie is here no longer, her legacy lives on.
