At Selena Gomez’s recent Miami concert she gave a heart-wrenching tribute to Christina Grimmie, who was tragically shot by a crazed fan last Friday. Christina was Selena’s friend and opening act in her We Own The Night tour. The two had been friends since the age of 14 when Selena’s step-father became Grimmie’s manager.
Selena began the tribute by saying a few words about her late friend, “And one thing about Christina and her family, is that she holds her faith so closely to her. It’s not about her religion, and it’s not about good deeds. It’s just that she had faith. And I don’t really understand how this happened, but I would like to dedicate this next song to her.”
Selena sang the song “Transformation” before breaking down and mouthing the words “I’m sorry.” We’ve never seen Selena so heartbroken, even in the Bieber days.
The attack on Christina happened just before the largest mass shooting in US history, which also took place in Orlando, Flo. Florida is currently under fire, receiving serious criticism of their lax gun laws.
