The last video uploaded to Grimmie's YouTube channel is a moving tribute to her incredible life.

Following her memorial service and private intimate funeral on June 16th, one last video has been uploaded to Christina Grimmie's YouTube channel.

Grimmie was tragically shot and killed by a crazed "fan" at a meet-and-greet stop on June 10th in Orlando, FL. Fans and followers have been sharing their tributes to the ex-YouTube sensation over the past week - many fellow musicians have also shared their own on stage tributes following the sad news. 

But the most moving tribute has arrived in the form of a video that has just been uploaded to her own Youtube page. 

As subscribers link to her page, they are greeted with a moving tribute entitled "In Loving Memory of Christina Grimmie | March 12, 1994 to June 10th, 2016." 


The bio reads: "Christina Grimmie was taken from all of us far too soon, but the impact she had on this world in the short 22 years of her life will carry on forever."

The video, which plays over Christina's incredible cover of Jason Mraz's "I Won't Give Up", features clips from Christina's iconic music covers, inspiring messages to her fans, her time on The Voice, video diaries from her tours and even happier times at previous meet-and-greets.

While the video is heartbreaking to watch, it's a bittersweet reminder of how many lives she inspired and how many smiles she put on people's faces. It's the clips of a beaming Christina interacting with fans that stand out the most though, especially when you consider the setting in which she tragically lost her life. They serve as a reassuring reminder to the entire YouTube community who have recently raised concerns about safety at meet-and-greets

The video ends with Christina speaking directly into the camera, "You're strong, so own it. Love, me."
