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.
