Christina Grimmie's funeral arrangements have been announced.
Christina's funeral will be held on Friday, June 17, but it will be a private ceremony for family and close friends, the Associated Pressreported.
A viewing will also be held on Friday at Fellowship Alliance Chapel in Medford, NJ, with a memorial service to follow that night.
This past Monday, hundred of fans and loved ones gathered in Evesham, NJ, for a candlelight vigil.
The Voice alum's brother Marcus Grimmie -- who tackled the gunman to the ground after he shot Christina several times on June 10 in Orlando during a fan meet and greet -- spoke about his beloved little sister at the vigil.
"Christina was awesome," Marcus told attendees at Evesham Memorial Sports Complex, according to the AP. "She loved this town, she loved this state, she loved singing, she loved the Lord and she loved me. She was my baby sister."
Adam Levine, who coached Christina on the sixth season of The Voice and led her to a third-place finish, offered to pay for the funeral expenses. Marcus revealed on Facebook that he was "blown away" by Levine's generosity, especially considering he had called his mother personally to discuss the matter.
At the young age of 22, Christina died from her wounds in the hospital several hours after she was shot. Police identified the killer as Kevin James Loibl, whom they called a "deranged fan."
