Charlie Puth Dedicates Performance To Christina Grimmie
During his Saturday show, Puth took a moment to remember Grimmie, the former The Voice contestant who was shot dead in Florida Friday night while signing autographs at a meet-and-greet following a concert.
“I was reading the news last night and heard that my good friend Christina Grimmie was killed, and I want to dedicate this song to her tonight,” Puth said from his piano. “I’ve been upset about this all day, mainly because I just never to say what I wanted to say to her, and I feel like this song perfectly captures that.”
Puth then launched into a rendition of “See You Again,” the song that he had worked on with Wiz Khalifa as a tribute to the late Paul Walker that was featured on the soundtrack for Furious 7.
Puth also paid tribute to Grimmie on Twitter Saturday, writing, “When you die, your body dies, but your soul lives on forever, as will hers. Rest In Peace Christina Grimmie. A beautiful talent,” adding, “At the end of the day, we laugh, we cry, we dance, and we sing together.”
