A South Jersey community held a candlelight vigil in honor of Evesham Township native Christina Grimmie who was gunned down after a Florida concert.

The 22-year-old singer was shot to death last week as she signed autographs after a show in Orlando.

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

A viewing will be held Friday at Fellowship Alliance Chapel in Medford. A memorial service will be held there Friday night.

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

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