Tori Kelly Pens ‘Blink Of An Eye’ In Honor Of Christina Grimmie
Just over a month ago, Christina Grimmie was taken from us far too soon in an unfortunate tragedy that took place outside her final show in Orlando, Florida.
Fans and fellow artists are still coming to terms with her sudden passing – artists like Tori Kelly. Earlier this week, Tori uploaded a new song – ‘Blink Of An Eye’ – in memory of Christina.
Tori had this to say about ‘Blink Of An Eye’:
this song was written for christina grimmie after she passed away tragically. i needed to write this song. 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, 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.
“He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.” ~ Revelation 21:4
