NEW YORK — Christina Grimmie’s music video “Snow White” debuted Thursday, two months after she was gunned down outside of a concert venue in Orlando, Florida.
Grimmie died in June when a man fatally shot her as she was signing autographs after her concert at The Plaza Live Theater.
Before her untimely death, the 22-year-old singer had filmed “The Ballad of Jessica Blue,” a music video short film for her “Side A” EP, the last songs she recorded.
Grimmie’s family shared the opening song, titled “Snow White,” with Billboard Thursday.
The six-and-a-half-minute music video is the first of four. Grimmie plays a girl named Jessica who is having trouble balancing her issues with her boyfriend and her art. She looks towards her friends and family for advice.
The rest of the videos will be released throughout the month.
Fans and celebrities were shocked and saddened by Grimmie’s death. Adam Levine, who was the 22-year-old’s coach on “The Voice” in 2014, along with other starts posted photos on social media in memory of the singer. Levine also paid for all funeral expenses.
Grimmie was laid to rest in a private funeral and burial in her New Jersey hometown. A memorial service was held one day later where family, friends and fans celebrated the singer’s life.
