Singer Christina Grimmie, 22, was shot and killed on June 10 in Orlando while signing autographs for fans after a show. On June 11, Brian Teefey, who was Grimmie's manager, started a GoFundMe page for the artist's family. As of Monday morning the page has raised over $120,000. The donations, from more than 4,000 people, will go towards helping Grimmie's family to pay for memorial and funeral costs.

Teefey is also Selena Gomez's stepfather, and the two women—Grimmie and Gomez—had been friends for eight years. During her concert in Miami, FL on June 11, an obviously overwrought Gomez struggled to speak through her tears, saying, "When she was 14, we met her and my parents and I signed her. One thing about Christina and her family is that she holds her faith so closely to her. And I think it’s not about a religion and it’s not about anything, or good deeds. It’s just that she had faith, and I don’t really understand how this really happened, but I would like to dedicate this next song to her."

Gomez then sat at her piano and sang Hillsong Worship's "Transfiguration."
