Hours before her tragic killing, former "Voice" contestant Christina Grimmie took the stage in front of a crowd of adoring fans at The Plaza Live in Orlando, Florida, to deliver a stunning performance.
The 22-year-old was fatally shot during an autograph signing after the concert, where she opened for the pop punk band Before You Exit. The investigation is ongoing, but Orlando Police Chief John Mina said the assailant traveled from elsewhere in Florida to shoot Grimmie, according to People. The man took his own life shortly afterward.
One Instagrammer captured a clip from Grimmie's opening set, featuring the singer performing "Without Him," a love ballad from her 2016 EP, "Side A."
In the video, Grimmie commands the stage, prompting the crowd to clap along while belting out lyrics like, "I'm just imagining a life without my baby." The vocal dexterity that made her a standout on Season 6 of "The Voice" is on full display as she delivers runs that would surely make judge Christina Aguilera proud.
