BLI Summer Jam took place less than 24 hours after The Voice contestant, Christina Grimmie, lost her life way too early. Grimmie was shot at a meet & greet after her performance at the Plaza Live Theater signing autographs when a gunman approached her, shooting & killing her. Grimmie’s brother is being credited as a hero, due to the fact he immediately tackled the gunman. The gunman then turned the weapon on himself & committed suicide. Some artists on the BLI Summer Jam lineup not only knew Christina, but also have performed with her. They honored her memory on stage at Nikon at Jones Beach during their sets.
