Performers May Rethink Meet-and-Greets Following Murder of 'The Voice' Star Christina Grimmie
Christina Grimmie did a meet-and-greet with fans following her Orlando show Friday night, but didn't realize a madman was lurking.
The city of Orlando, Florida, was hit twice this weekend.
A day before the carnage at the Pulse nightclub, a young singer was shot to death, allegedly by a man posing as a fan during a post-concert meet-and-greet.
Christina Grimmie, 22, was signing autographs when police say Kevin Loibl, 27, approached and opened fire.
After being tackled by Christina's brother, Marcus, Loibl shot himself in the head, police said.
Her intimate Friday night concert before just 120 people took place just three miles from Sunday's mass shooting at Pulse, where gunman Omar Mateen killed 49 people and wounded 53 others.
Grimmie came in third on "The Voice" in 2014, singing the Miley Cryus hit "Wrecking Ball."
Meet-and-greets with fans have come under scrutiny recently due to security concerns.
Earlier this year, Justin Bieber canceled his fan meet-and-greet sessions after a security breakdown let a stalker get too close.
