Though widely celebrated for her participation in Season 6 of the NBC smash hit singing competition, The Voice, Christina Grimmie’s incredible talent began taking shape long before her appearance on the show had even been televised. A singer/songwriter from the start, Grimmie’s aspirations to become a performer emerged at age four, swiftly followed by her impressive talent on the piano and undeniable vocal capabilities. At age 12, Grimmie’s mother was diagnosed with breast cancer, a frightening reality that would lead Grimmie to write an incredibly moving and relatable tune. The ballad, “Little Girl” is titled in reference to the loving nickname Grimmie’s mother would call her throughout this incredibly tumultuous time, in hopes that the phrase might bring comfort to her young daughter.

“Little Girl” reveals the powerful bond between Grimmie and her mother, enforcing the importance of support and encouragement inside one of life’s most significant relationships. Despite having been written years prior, Grimmie did not record “Little Girl” until months before her unexpected and tragic death on June 10, 2016.
