Memorial Service for Singer Christina Grimmie Open to the Public Today
You can pay your respects today to Marlton's own Christina Grimmie. The singer, who rose to fame on season 6 of NBC's The Voice and was murdered last week, was laid to rest in a private ceremony this morning, but fans are welcome to attend a public memorial service this afternoon.
Fans who wish to pay their respects to the late 22-year-old can attend the public memorial at the Fellowship Alliance Chapel in Medford from 3-8 p.m. A memorial service will begin at 8 p.m.
Grimmie's burial follows Monday night's candlelight vigil in Evesham Township where hundreds of mourners gathered.
Christina was shot and killed last Friday night by obsessed fan Kevin Loibl while signing autographs after her concert at Orlando's Plaza Live. Loibl then killed himself.
Grimmie's funeral expenses were paid for by Maroon 5's Adam Levine, her mentor on The Voice.
