Tori Kelly's Tribute Song to Christina Grimmie 'Blink of an Eye' Will Make You Cry

Through the heartbreaking acoustic ballad, Tori remembers Christina who was tragically shot and killed by an obsessed fan following an Orlando concert on June 10.

AceShowbiz - Tori Kelly has released a new song "Blink of an Eye" dedicated to Christina Grimmie. The former "American Idol" contestant shared on YouTube a video of her performing the heartbreaking acoustic ballad.

"This song was written for Christina Grimmie after she passed away tragically," Tori wrote, "I needed to write this song. Thank you to my good friend, Zac Poor, who was brave enough to take on the challenge of writing it with me. My heart was & is still so heavy when I think of her not being with us. However, I am still comforted knowing that I'll get to see her again someday in heaven. My prayers go out to her family & loved ones."

She continued, "Even though this song had specific meaning, more recently I'm overwhelmed at the pain & the brokenness in the world today, & so this is really just me grieving. At all of it. Life is so short. Thanks for listening, I love you guys."

Tori concluded her message with a bible verse saying, "He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away. - Revelation 21:4."

Shortly after the song was released, Justin Bieber, who cried while paying tribute to Christina during his recent concert, gave his support to Tori.
