Just in time for Mother’s Day, Christina Grimmie‘s family has released a new song the late singer wrote for her mom.
Grimmie, who was shot dead in 2016 while greeting fans, wrote “Little Girl” when she was just 12 years old in honor of her mother, who was undergoing treatment for breast cancer at the time.
“I am proud to share this extremely personal song with other mothers and daughters as well as Christina’s fans,” her mother, Tina Grimmie, told People. “It is very special to me and carries a part of not only Christina but our unique bond.”
She continued: “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.”
A portion of proceeds from the song will benefit the Christina Grimmie Foundation, which aims to help families affected by gun violence or breast cancer.
A former contestant on “The Voice,” Grimmie was killed in June 2016 when a gunman opened fire following her concert in Orlando.
