The Voice family and other celebs are mourning the death of former show finalist Christina Grimmie, who was shot dead at age 22 Friday.

The singer, who came in third place during season six in 2014, was gunned down by an unidentified assailant at an Orlando, Florida concert. Her brother tackled the gunman as he opened fire and the suspect soon shot and killed himself. Grimmie later died of her wounds. The motive for the shooting was unclear and police are still investigating.

"We are heartbroken," read a post on The Voice's Twitter page. "@TheRealGrimmie is a loved member of our family.  Our thoughts are with her and her family.  #PrayForChristina."

"There are no words," read another tweet posted on behalf of the NBC show. "We lost a beautiful soul with an amazing voice. Our hearts go out to the friends, fans and family of @TheRealGrimmie."

The band on tour with Grimmie during last night's show, Before You Exit, penned the following touching tribute to the singer:"

"Last night we lost an angel, sister, and beloved friend. Christina was such a loving, caring, beautiful person with the biggest heart. She was an absolutely incredible musician and an even better friend. We are so saddened by her passing and are completely heartbroken. Words fail to describe how much Christina means to all of us. She was always a constant beam of light and energy into the hearts of everyone around her. Her care-free spirit and her laughter constantly lit up every room she entered and she always had this glisten in her eyes which was evident in her faith.

"While we know there is no sort of feeling that can replace the joy Christina brought into our lives, we know she is glistening from up in Heaven and shining down on all of us. Please join us in keeping Christina's family in your prayers as we know Jesus said, "In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world." She and her talent will be missed by us all. #ripchristina"
