MTV Story LINK: HEAR TORI KELLY’S HEARTBREAKING NEW SONG FOR CHRISTINA GRIMMIE‘THIS IS REALLY JUST ME GRIEVING. AT ALL OF IT. LIFE IS SO SHORT.’

Excerpt from the article:
Tori Kelly's new song was inspired by Christina Grimmie, but she’s been using it to cope with the pain of all those whose lives were cut short too early. Sunday (July 10) on YouTube, Kelly shared “Blink of an Eye,” which she’s dedicated to Grimmie after the young singer was killed by a gunman at a meet and greet in Orlando. She cowrote the song with Zac Poor.





From Tori's description on her You Tube video of the song "Blink Of An Eye" :

"This song was written for christina grimmie after she passed away tragically. i needed to write this song. thank you to my good friend, zac poor, who was brave enough to take on the challenge of writing it with me. my heart was & is still so heavy when i think of her not being with us. however, i am still comforted knowing that i'll get to see her again someday in heaven. my prayers go out to her family & loved ones. even though this song had specific meaning, more recently i'm overwhelmed at the pain & the brokenness in the world today, & so this is really just me grieving. at all of it. life is so short. thanks for listening, i love you guys. "He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.” ~ Revelation 21:4"
