A memorial service also will be held in New Jersey on Friday night.

MEDFORD, N.J. (AP) — Funeral services for The Voice star Christina Grimmie will be held later this week near her New Jersey hometown.

The 22-year-old singer was shot to death last week as she signed autographs after a show in Orlando, Fla. Authorities say Grimmie apparently had no personal connection to the man who shot her and then fatally shot himself after being tackled by her brother.

A viewing will be held Friday at Fellowship Alliance Chapel in Medford. A memorial service also will be held later that night.

Grimmie was widely known from her appearances on NBC's The Voice two years ago. She lived in Evesham Township, a small community about 20 miles from Philadelphia, before moving to Los Angeles in 2012.
