Christina Victoria Grimmie (March 12, 1994 – June 11, 2016) was an American singer and songwriter, known for her participation in the NBC singing competition The Voice and for her covers of hit songs by contemporary pop musicians. In June 2011, she released her debut EP, Find Me. Her studio album With Love was released in 2013. A second EP, Side A, was released in 2016.

In 2014, Grimmie took part in season 6 of The Voice and finished in third place.
