Christina Victoria Grimmie (March 12, 1994 – June 11, 2016)
I had no real idea of what to draw for this. All I know is that when I heard Christina Gimmie had been shot, I felt I had to draw something.
I first found out about Christina Grimmie when I watched her singing “Titanium” on Youtube. I found her singing to be incredibly moving, and that is as much as I knew her. Yet I feel terrible when I heard of her death, as so many of her fans did.
I don’t want to say much; just this. I think Christina was lost far too early, and I think her death was tragic. And while she might be gone, her songs live on. I’m not sure what kind of legacy that is, but I believe it is a kind of immortality. Christina, I can only say that I’m sorry you’re gone.
I’ve got a certain song on repeat. And while I’m at it, I have to wonder how people apologize. Do you give a gift, beg for mercy, or hope the offended person forgets? In Knight’s case, I’d say running for your life is the best approach.
Today’s lesson is about confidence. Do your best and ignore the haters. Even if you can’t walk, talk the talk! That’s how you karaoke properly. I’m not sure how this philosophy works with the rest of life, but it’s worth a shot.
Pirate should probably be singing on a different stage…
