Tori Kelly released a new song over the weekend honoring Christina Grimmie, the former Voice contestant who was murdered after a concert last month. 

“I needed to write this song,” Kelly wrote. “My heart was [and] 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 [and] loved ones.”


“Even though this song had specific meaning, more recently I’m overwhelmed at the pain [and] the brokenness in the world today,” she went on. “So this is really just me grieving. At all of it. Life is so short.”

Hear Kelly perform “Blink Of An Eye,” co-written with Zac Poor, in the video above.
