The news of the tragedy of Christina Grimmie still sits badly in my heart.
The first time I fell in love with Christina was when I saw the YouTube video of her singing “Just a Dream” with Sam Tsui, and whenever somebody asks me who she is, I direct them to that particular video online.
Well, yesterday, Sam Tsui spoke up on the tragedy on Facebook, saying “I don’t have words for the loss of Christina, only music. Six years ago, when both of our journeys were just beginning, I sang this song with Christina and Kurt, and it’s the best way I know today to celebrate her life and all the love and hope she spread.” Watch Sam’s sad and heartbreaking rendition of “Just a Dream” in tribute to Christina here:
And in case you’ve never heard Sam and Christina’s version of the song, here it is:
Rest in peace, Christina. Thank you for the music.
