Christina Grimmie: Heartbroken, Hopeful in Posthumous Music Video

, , Comments Off on Christina Grimmie: Heartbroken, Hopeful in Posthumous Music Video

Christina Grimmie may no longer be with us.

But the family of this late singer is making sure fans can continue to appreciate her music.

Last week, we shared the first of four music videos Grimmie filmed before her tragic, shocking death in June.

It featured the singer playing a version of Snow White, describing Grimmie's journey in trying to find her Prince Charming.

The song was the opening chapter in a long-form music video titled the “Ballad of Jessica Blue,” with Grimmie playing the titular character.

Take a look at "Snow White" below:

Now, Grimmie's family has released the video for "Anybody's You."

In this case, Grimmie portrays the same fictional character of Jessica Blue, reflecting on past romances gone wrong and the ex-boyfriends who cheated on her

But the song is not meant to be a downer. There's an optimistic tinge to it.

The title, for example, is a reference to the perfect soulmate who "Jessica" has not yet met, with Grimmie wondering "if there's someone that makes me happy/Someone that I already knew/What if, what if, what if that anybody /Anybody's you?"

She talks to her grandmother at one point in the video about her frustrations with the opposite sex.

The footage ends on a cliffhanger, with Jessica's grandmother telling her grandchild to "Come with me."

But the next step in this video series will be released next week.

Grimmie, of course, was fatally shot by a deranged fan in Orlando on June 10.

She was signing autographs backstage for fans when a man walked up to her and simply pulled the trigger.

Grimmie's brother eventually wrestled the shooter to the ground, likely savings many lives in the process, prior to the man getting himself free and killing himself in the process.

Grimmie was 22 years old at the time of her death.

During a memorial service, her brother Marcus addressed the people who came out to pay their respects.

"I don't have anything to say, I don't have words still and it's a good and bad thing," he said.

"All I'm going to say is thank God for the mark that she left on this world. Thanks mom and dad. I know it's going to be really tough for us to move forward."

It's been tough for the entire music world to move forward, not that we can compare anyone's pain here to the pain of Grimmie's family.

Our heart continues to go out to them and we continue to send them our condolences.

All we can do now is honor the art that Christina made while she was alive.

Along those lines, join us in watching the moving music video below:
