"When she was 14, we met her, and my parents and I signed her," Gomez said after her performance of "Nobody" during her Miami concert at the American Airlines Arena. "One thing about Christina and her family is that she holds her faith so closely to her. And I think it's not about a religion and it's not about... good deeds. It's just that she had faith, and I don't really understand how this really happened, but I would like to dedicate this next song to her."

Gomez walked over to her piano and sang a rendition of Hillsong's "Transfiguration," to which the crowd shined their phone lights up to the sky.

In lieu of the tragedy, Gomez also cancelled her scheduled meet-and-greets with fans following her Miami show, according to E!.

Earlier in the day, the "Same Old Love" singer shared a black-and-white photo of her late friend on Twitter. "My heart is absolutely broken," she captioned it. "I miss you Christina."

Charlie Puth also took time to remember Grimmie during his concert Saturday night in New York. The singer dedicated his hit song "See You Again" to the late singer.

"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," Puth said to concertgoers. "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."

Puth also addressed Grimmie's tragic death on Twitter.

NEWS: Selena Gomez's Stepfather Created a GoFundMe Account For Christina Grimmie

Gomez's stepfather, Brian Teefey, first discovered the Voice contestant when she was in high school and later became her manager. On Saturday, he created a GoFundMe account in her honor.

"Words cannot begin to describe the pain I am feeling," Teefey's message read. "I learned this business through the eyes of a father and Christina was like a second daughter to me. All I wanted to do was assist her in achieving her musical dreams while protecting her from the pitfalls associated with the business. I never could have imagined this horrific event being one of the pitfalls needing to be avoided."

Teefey also explained that the GoFundMe page was setup in order to assist Grimmie's family in their time of need.
