The late Christina Grimmie has a new single out now, which helps fulfill a major dream she had when she was alive.
Grimmie's fans are still grieving the loss of the 22-year-old singer, who was shot and killed after an Orlando concert in June. Luckily, her music lives on, and so does her dream.
Republic Records, a division of Universal Music Group, has now released a new song from Grimmie called "Invisible", and her parents could not be more proud.
"This new project is some of the best music our daughter ever created. She was so excited about the new direction her music was taking," her mother, Tina, told People. Her father, Bud, added, "We're so grateful to Universal Music Group and Republic Records for recognizing our daughter's potential and amazing talent by expressing a desire to honor her by distributing this music."
"The really, really cool thing is as a family we're just building Christina's legacy, because she already left quite a huge mark in this world, and was continuing to do so," brother Marcus told Elvis Duran this week. "She's a very unique person, and unfortunately we're left with a very unique situation, and we're just going to be emphasizing her voice, her music, and her life in ways that help others."
Grimmie was an independent artist even through her time on The Voice. She had signed with Island Records, another division of Universal Music Group, but was dropped from the label. She only released one studio album, With Love, but had also released two EPs.
On "Invisible", Grimmie sings of finding independence without a man's approval.
"I'm solid, not apparition/ But check your vision/ See what you're missing, boy/ I don't need your permission/ To go on existing/ With or without you, boy," she sings.
"Invisible" will be part of Grimmie's new EP, Side B, which is set for release in March.
