Other than the fact that I stand with the two benefactors of the foundation: those affected by gun violence and those affected by breast cancer, I met Christina Grimmie and believe that if she did live, I would have worked with her in some regard.
I created the Rock The Socks Off! collection in her honor because she was an absolute bright light musically and personally.
It was an absolute tragedy when she was gunned down during a meet and greet because those were her absolute favorite thing about performing live is that she got the chance to meet and chat with her fans afterward.
She was just such a warm and kind person, and didn’t deserve that fateful ending.
Each pair of socks gives $5 to the Christina Grimmie Foundation.
You can purchase some here and they retail for $15.99
Outside of the blatant reason of meeting Christina while working another concert, I can say that music has always played a huge part in my life. I grew up wanting to be a professional singer, I learned how to play piano and can read music, and I was a girl drummer.
I have also been told that some of my poetry could be set to music and turned into songs.
