Tori Kelly Pours Her Heart Into An Original 'Blink Of An Eye' Written In Remembrance of Christina Grimmie

By  July 15, 2016

Simply heartbreaking.

It has been slightly over a month since the world has lost the gorgeous and talented Christina Grimmie. They say that time will heal but the real question is how long does it really take to move on from such a tragic death of someone you once held so close. Family and friends have since paid their tribute to the beautiful soul through various ways. Some have made video montages, others have dedicated songs and personal messages to the late singer.

Tori Kelly was no exception. The singer-songwriter penned a soulful ballad which she titled Blink Of An Eye with some really honest and heartfelt lyrics that made us all cry uncontrollably. "Can't help but think who you would be if you just had the chance to turn 23" got us right in the feels. As Tori just turned 23 herself last December, she probably feels horrible thinking that Christina would never be 23. The song continues, "You had so much life left. Can't help but think it could've been me out there, chasing a dream when suddenly it all stops in a heartbeat." Wow, the senseless act could seriously have happened to anyone. And it just so happened to be Christina who was just a girl living out her dreams.

Tori mentions in the description box that writing this song was her way of expressing her still heavy heart but is comforted by the fact that she'll one day see Christina again in heaven. She continues to explain that although the tune was written for Christina, this is her way of mourning at the pain and brokenness in the world today. She ended it off by saying that life is so short with a bible verse from Revelation.
