In honor of Mother’s Day, the Grimmie Family and ZXL Music released the posthumous single by fan favorite from NBC’s The Voice and YouTube icon Christina Grimmie entitled Little Girl on Friday May 11, 2018.
The release is available worldwide at digital retail and is a gift to all mothers from Tina Grimmie, Christina’s mother. A portion of the proceeds will go to the Christina Grimmie Foundation helping families affected by the tragedy of gun violence or the diagnosis of breast cancer.
Little Girl is an original, never-released song by Christina Grimmie that shares a moving story about the profound level of love and support that exists between a mother and daughter. Christina began writing this song at age 12 and later finished it after moving to California. It was a tribute to her mother, Tina Grimmie, created to comfort her during breast cancer treatment.
The phrase “little girl” was used frequently by Tina to comfort Christina as a young girl when she was afraid. The irony of the song is that Christina speaks these words back to her mother at a critical and difficult time in her life, following her loss and current battle with cancer.
“I am proud to share this extremely personal song with other mothers and daughters as well as Christina’s fans,” commented Tina Grimmie. “It is very special to me and carries a part of not only Christina but our unique bond. I miss her daily and I take comfort in knowing that this song might help other mothers and daughters through their fearful or tough times.”
