Before they began the performance, Levine stated, “God, I loved her so much. I am talking to you guys specifically, I’m talking to everybody. I miss her. It is unfair she is not here. We are going to sing a little song. I am going to be singing every word to her in her honor. Thank you for being here. Christina, we love you.”
Christina passed away at just 22 years-old after she was shot while signing autographs in Orlando on June 10, 2016. Christina’s bright talent and warmth will never be forgotten and will continue to live on through her newly founded foundation.
