Christina’s life in a nutshell


Christina Grimmie is a US-American singer, songwriter and piano player. She got popular from July 2009 onwards as the YouTube artist zeldaxlove64.

Christina was born on March 12, 1994 in the state of New Jersey (USA). She is the second child of Tina and Albert Grimmie, and has a brother named Mark Grimmie.

In her spare time, Christina loves playing video games, most notably Zelda: Ocarina of Time (which explains her YouTube-username…). She also likes Mario and has a poster of Sonic in her standard recording-room.

Religiously, Christina describes herself as a full on Christian who loves Jesus and reads The Bible. Her lyrics reflect her morals and beliefs, and how she lives her life.

Professionally, she is inspired by Christina Aguilera and Stacie Orrico, and got the opportunity to work with Selena Gomez on multiple occasions (see below).

As of early October 2011, Christina Grimmie is still unsigned.

Selena Gomez & Management, Concerts & Tours, Contests & Awards

Discovered by Selena Gomez’ parents

Black / White

In May 2010, Christina announced that she had acquired Selena Gomez‘ parents (mother Mandy and stepdad Brian Teefey) as her new management team. This eventually allowed Christina to act as an extra in Selena’s Dream Out Loud commercial for her K-Mart clothing-line, and to perform alongside Selena on a number of occasions.

Concerts and Tours

Starting off with performing three of her original songs as the opening act for Selena Gomez at her UNICEF charity concert on October 26th 2010, Christina continued working with Selena as a backup singer for “Selena Gomez and The Scene” in the Jingle Ball Tour in early December 2010.

Selena Gomez Summer Tour 2011

On March 20th 2011, Christina was part of the third annual Concert for Hope, where she performed her original songs alongside Disney Music Group artists Selena Gomez, Jonas Brothers, and Allstar Weekend. In April/May 2011, Christina joined YouTube’s The Digitour, the first ever nation-wide YouTube Tour, on five occasions.

Troughout the summer of 2011, Christina was one of the opening acts for Selena’s Gomez’ Summer Tour 2011 around the USA and parts of Canada (also known as the “We Own The Night” Tour). The other opening act was Allstar Weekend. Troughout October 2011, Christina continued touring with Selena on her Canada Tour.

Contests and Awards

In November 2010, Christina took part in Christina Aguilera’s Karaoke Contest on MySpace (unfortunately, she never posted the results). In early 2011, Christina took part in, and won, the MyYouTube competition in her category.

In September 2011, Christina was one of the artists in Coca Cola’s Taio Cruz Contest. She won and recorded a cover of “Higher” with Taio Cruz, which the two performed in November at the American Music Awards (AMAs) 2011.

During the AMAs 2011, Christina was nominated as “New Media Honoree (Female)” and received a trophy.

Christina’s YouTube profile

Christina’s Description

Heey YouTube !
As you can probably tell i love singing, writing songs, writing music and i play piano and alittle drums & guitar ! For the record guys,

i PLAY THE PIANO in every one of my videos, i dont like instrumentals on the computer, i like originals by me :) it feels more original too.

Incase you didn’t know already im obsessed with Zelda! hence the name “zeldaxlove64″ . Ocarina of Time is the best Zelda game out there, although there are ALOT !!

My number one pet peeve:
When people say/overuse “lol” or “lolz” or anything related to “lol”
I’m not sure’s being used out of context now and it annoys me.

Im a full on Christian, by the way. Jesus is my Savior and i looove Him and sing for Him.

  • Hero of Time

    Ms. Grimmie, i have to thank you. Not only did you save my life, literally, but you helped me find my purpose in it. If i hadn’t seen you on YouTube, i literally would have killed myself. And if it weren’t for you, I’d probably end up working at Lamar’s donuts, where i used to spend my school hours, assuming my parents/brother didn’t find me dead. But, thanks to you, i want to go onstage with my music.

    I love you for everything you’ve done for me, and i always will. Thank you.
