"Behati and I are absolutely devastated and heartbroken by Christina Grimmie's death," he wrote. "Our hearts go out to her family. Christina was a natural, gifted talent that comes along so rarely. She was taken from us too soon."

While Adam's gesture taken away the financial worries of Christina's death for her family, Marcus added that a fundraising campaign started by her manager for fans to contribute to has also raised a substantial amount of money, too.

"Now a friend just told me to look at the gofundme page and I see it is at 100k," he added. "Words cannot express... Literally I have no words." he added.
