Slain singer's NJ hometown plans vigil in her honor

The southern New Jersey town where Christina Grimmie grew up will hold a candlelight vigil to honor the singer who was fatally shot after a weekend concert in Florida.



Evesham Township Mayor Randy Brown says the vigil will be held at 8:45 p.m. Monday at the town's Memorial Complex.



The 22-year-old Grimmie was shot Friday night as she signed autographs after a show in Orlando.



Authorities say she apparently had no personal connection to the man who shot her. The gunman fatally shot himself after being tackled by her brother.



Grimmie was a YouTube star who was widely known from her appearances on NBC's "The Voice" two years ago.



Grimmie lived in Evesham, a small community about 20 miles from Philadelphia, before moving to Los Angeles in 2012.
