The music community is using their voices to honor and remember the talents of Christina Grimmie.

Just days after The Voice contestant and YouTube star was shot and killed at an Orlando concert, many singers decided to take time during their own performances Saturday night to pay their respects.

Selena Gomez got emotional in Miami when dedicating the song "Transfiguration" to her lifetime friend.

"One thing about Christina and her family is that she holds her faith so closely to her," Selena shared with the audience before wiping away tears. "I think it's not about a religion and it's not about good deeds. I think she just had faith and I don't really understand how this really happened, but I would like to dedicate this song to her."

As it turns out, many other artists including Charlie Puth and the ladies of Fifth Harmony had a special message for the late singer. Take a look at the moving tributes below.

1. Fifth Harmony
"Such a beautiful soul, such a beautiful talent. I remember the first time we met her, Normani Kordei shared on-stage while holding hands with her bandmates at 106.1's BLI's Summer Jam. "She was nothing but nice to us, so humble. We love you. We're praying for your family and we know that you're smiling down from above. Let's all remember her. Christina Grimmie."

2. Charlie Puth
"I was reading the news last night and heard that my good friend Christina Grimmie was killed, and I want to dedicate this song to her tonight," Charlie told concertgoers in New York City. "I've been upset about this all day, mainly because I just never got to say what I wanted to say to her, and I feel like this song perfectly captures that." He later performed an acoustic version of his hit song "See You Again."

3. Rachel Platten
"Last night, we lost someone really close to us, a singer named Christina Grimmie passed away," Rachel shared in New York. "We got to tour with her this spring. I got to know her very well and we're still in a lot of shock and it's hard to make sense of these kinds of things. She made this world a better place so I want to dedicate this to her tonight. Christina, I know that you're listening and we love you." She would later perform her hit single "Fight Song."

4. Twenty One Pilots
When Tyler Joseph and the band dedicated "Doubt" to Christina Saturday night, they may not have realized it's full significance. "Twenty One Pilots dedicated a song to Christina which would have meant everything to her," close friend Ashly Nicole told E! News. "Nicole is one of Christina's best friends and ‘Doubt' by Twenty One Pilots was their song. Christina would always sing and send the line ‘Even when I doubt you I'm no good without you' to Nicole."

5. Pentatonix
While performing in Munich Saturday night, the A cappella group dedicated "Light in the Hallway" to Christina. "So incredibly heartbroken right now. Sending love to the Grimmie family," Scott Hoying shared on Twitter before the performance. Kirstin Maldonado added, "One of my favs from back in the day. Rest in peace, beautiful beautiful girl. Chills."

Fans also revealed on social media that Alessia Cara, Kesha and Justin Bieber also delivered messages to Christina during their shows over the weekend.
