Christina Grimmie’s Team Shares Good News About New Music Following Grammys ‘In Memoriam’ Omission
Christina Grimmie’s fans were not pleased when the deceased singer was not honored in the Grammy Awards’ “In Memoriam” segment on Sunday (Feb. 12, 2017).
Though other Hollywood greats like Carrie Fisher and David Bowie were remembered during John Legend and Cynthia Erivo’s performance of “God Only Knows,” Grimmie, who was fatally shot by a fan in June 2015, was not at all mentioned. Her angered supporters spoke up about their discontent on Twitter during the broadcast, wondering why the show didn’t offer her the same respect.
Despite oversight in the broadcast, Grimmie’s camp released some positive news about the singer’s posthumous single “Invisible” on Twitter on Monday, Feb. 13, 2017.
“As an independent artist, Christina dreamed of a major record label distributing her music. That dream has COME TRUE for our dear angel,” the announcement said. “Universal Music Group, the world’s largest music company, will be releasing Christina’s new music under Republic Records. Because of this HUGE opportunity, Invisible’s 2/14 release date will be moved up a few days to 2/17 for #NewMusicFriday – when record labels release new music.”
