VidCon paid tribute to Christina Grimmie in such a heartbreakingly gorgeous way

Christina Grimmie was remembered at this year's VidCon.

Hank and John Green had trouble keeping their composure while presenting the video tribute at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, California, on Thursday, June 23. "So please join us in listening to and watching dozens of YouTubers and her friends who worked with her performing one of her songs ['With Love']", Hank added.

'Her innovation and her generosity will affect this industry and this community forever and I'm proud of that.

VidCon wasn't the same without Christina, but we're confident her presence will still be felt every year.

"But she was a talented and innovative performer, and we would like to instead ask for a minute of applause for Christina", said Hank, as John continued, "for who she was and what she did". "Her memory will always be with us, but a bunch of her friends reached out to us because they wanted to share a tribute that they were putting together for her memory".

She was approached by a supposed fan after a concert in Orlando on June 10 and then shot to death. Her absence was felt at last week's VidCon, but the festival paid a handsome tribute to her and her gift for singing.

Grimmie was discovered on YouTube back in 2010. It's a truly moving tribute to Christina's life, talent, and career, highlighting everything from her early YouTube videos to her best Voice appearances.

"I don't have anything to say, I don't have words still and it's a good and bad thing", Grimmie's brother said on stage at VidCon.

"All the rumors are true that when the gunman came...her arms were open".
