Meghan Trainor is one of several musicians who have taken a few moments in the past few days to honor Christina Grimmie.

Meghan Trainor on Stage

The 22-year old singer was tragically shot and killed after a concert on Friday night.

She had just finished a set when a crazed fan named Kevin James Loibl opened fire on Grimmie backstage during a meet-and-greet.

According to multiple reports, Grimmie's brother wrestled Loibl to the ground and likely saved many other lives in the process, with Loibl turning a gun on himself at one point and taking his own life.

Grimmie was a contestant on The Voice and her fellow artists have been inundating the Internet ever since her passing with thoughts, prayers, condolences and videos.

Selena Gomez, a long-time friend of Grimmie's, broke down during a dedication to Christina, for example.

And now we have Trainor, who took to the stage on Saturday at BLI’s Summer Jam in Wantagh, New York.

The singer dedicated her performance of "Like I'm Gonna Lose You" to the late singer at the tour stop. See it below:

"So if you will please sing it with me as a shoutout to our girl Christina," Trainor told those in attendance. "This one's for her. Let's sing nice and loud."

In response to this tragedy, a GoFundMe page has raised over $125,000 on behalf of Grimmie's family.

Grimmie's brother, meanwhile, has released the following statement:

"I really don’t have much to say about anything and am just blown away with the prayers and support.

"Christina was more than my sister. She was a partner in life. A superstar. A goofball. Introverted. And a friend to everyone. Genuinely. But above all … she was my baby sister.

"She loved the Lord and her family and was always there for me and I honestly don’t know what I'll do without her."

We send our condolences to Michael Grimmie and the entire family.
