Christina Grimmie’s first posthumous single is out and it’s climbing the iTunes charts.
As of 8 a.m., eight hours after its release, “Invisible” was sitting at number 44 on the site’s pop singles chart.
It was number 126 on the overall singles chart.
The release comes eight months after the 22-year-old singer and former finalist on The Voice was shot and killed by a crazed fan following a show in Florida.
Christina’s family has announced that their share of proceeds from the single will go toward establishing a foundation in her honor.
They haven’t decided on what cause the foundation will support, her brother Marcus said during an appearance on Elvis Duran and The Morning Show Thursday.
He added that Christina was particularly passionate about breast cancer awareness, animal safety and anti-bullying.
And it sounds as though this might not be the last new music we’ll hear from the late singer. Marcus said Christina had 50-60 songs she was working on that she had finished vocally.
“Since about 2015, she’s been just grinding it out, writing songs …and she’d just been putting in hard work,” he told the show. “It’s unbelievable. No one that I have ever met has worked as hard as she has, and that’s for sure. We’re very excited to be doing this the way she wanted it done.”
As a bonus, the new music is being released by a major label, Republic Records.
