Christina Grimmie Opens for Selena Gomez Tonight!

Christina Grimmie

It’s here!  Selena Gomez’s concert for UNICEF is tonight (October 26), and we were lucky enough to visit Selena’s home today to chat with the talented Christina Grimmie, who is opening for the mega star!

Fanlala was on hand as Christina rehearsed with Ethan Roberts, who is also the guitarist for Selena Gomez & the Scene!  After a little sneak peak rehearsal performance by the two, we got to hear this New Jersey girl’s story on getting her start in the business.  After a friend suggested she post her singing videos on YouTube, this singer has racked up over 50 million views with covers of songs like “Fireflies” and her Miley Cyrus medley.  The singer was also surprised to know that Selena Gomez was familiar with her video!

As for tonight’s important charitable concert, Grimmie told us, “It’s a wonderful and it saves children’s lives all over the world. It’s just a really awesome opportunity, to open for someone like Selena Gomez.”  Don’t worry if you can’t be there!  You can see the concert live at www.selenagomez.com.
