Tori Kelly is still reeling from the shocking death of Christine Grimmie and is turning to music to help her cope.

On Sunday (July. 10, 2016), Kelly uploaded a new song to YouTube titled “Blink of an Eye,” explaining the song was in memory of the late Grimmie.

“this song was written for christina grimmie after she passed away tragically. i needed to write this song,” she wrote in the video caption. “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.”

“even though this song had specific meaning,” she continued, “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.”
