Here’s welcome news to help welcome 2017.
We’ll be getting new music from the late Christina Grimmie in the not-too-distant future.
Before her death in June, Christina had released a four-track EP called “Side A.”
She had been working on “Side B” and might have recorded some material for that EP as well.
Last month, her family and team announced that a song called “Invisible” will be released on Feb. 14, Valentine’s Day.
The Facebook post announcing the single is signed by The Grimmie Family and says “stay tuned for more info , and thank you for continuing to support Christina’s legacy.”
The family has done it’s best to keep that legacy alive. Since Christina’s death at the hands of a crazed fan following a show in Florida, four videos called “The Ballad of Jessica Blue” have been released.
Christina also starred in the recently released feature film called “The Matchbreaker.” And “My Buddy,” a song she performed for the film, has been turned into a music video.
We also recently learned that the Grimmie family has sued AEG Live, the foundation that owns the Florida venue where she was shot and the company providing security that night.
Not surprising since her killer managed to slip two Glock handguns into the Plaza Live. He shot Christina three times when he approached her during a post-show meet-and-greet before taking his own life.
Christina’s family continues to post updates on her still active Facebook page.
