Christina Grimmie laid to rest and buried in New Jersey as memorial services commence

By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 06/17/2016 

Christina Grimmie has been laid to rest a week after a "deranged fan" took her life.

Grimmie's funeral took place on Thursday in what a source described as an "intimate gathering for her family and close friends," People reported.

As Grimmie's older brother Marcus previously revealed, The Voice coach Adam Levine paid for the service. The Maroon 5 frontman coached her to a third-place finish when she competed on The Voice's sixth season.

Since fans were unable to attend the funeral, they can reportedly pay their respects at a public memorial held at the Fellowship Alliance Chapel in Medford, NJ, on Friday from 3-8PM ET/PT. A memorial service will directly follow.

Loved ones have been mourning the death of Grimmie all week long. Fans, family and friends gathered at a candlelight vigil in Evesham Township on Monday.

"She loved this town, she loved this state, she loved singing, she loved the Lord and she loved me and she was my baby sister," Marcus said when addressing the vigil crowd, according to People.

Grimmie's killer was Kevin Loibl, who shot the 22-year-old singer several times last Friday night while she was signing autographs and posing for pictures with fans after an Orlando concert. Grimmie died from her wounds in the hospital a few hours after she was shot.

Marcus tackled Loibl to the ground after the shooting, and authorities say the assailant killed himself after the violent act.
