Singer Christina Grimmie, 22, who gained fame as a contestant on television singing contest The Voice, was hit by three shots at a concert in Orlando, Florida, on Friday, June 10, and died on June 11, 2016. She was fired upon as she was signing autographs.
At the June 10, 2016, the group Before You Exit flashed the devil horns and projected their signature symbol, as Grimmie sang. According to the Before You Exit website, their "band’s name [was] inspired by the sentiment 'make a difference before you exit.'" It also uses the phrase, "many short lived...artists."
Striking an Illuminati All-Seeing-Eye pose, Grimmie presented her new hair style before going on concert with Before You Exit.
Grimmie was an American singer and songwriter, best known for participating in The Voice and for her covers of hit songs by contemporary pop musicians. In June 2011, she released her debut EP, Find Me.
Grimmie was signing autographs with band members of Before You Exit, with whom she performed earlier, when a gunman approached and opened fire (three shots were reported) before her brother tackled him at the Plaza Live music venue. The Orlando Police Department said her brother's action saved others' lives.
Grimmie placed third during the 2014 season of the The Voice, a singing competition on NBC.
Victoria, you will recall as noted in my recent "Nervous Nick" posting, is aligned with the origins of Nicholas, via Nike. The mythological Nike was a Greek goddess of victory and root origin of Nicholas. The Roman equivalent was Victoria. Therefore, the meaning and forms are related. Victoria is the Latin word for "victory" or "conquer" and is used as the feminine form corresponding to the name Victor. In Roman mythology, Victoria was the name of the goddess of victory, corresponding directly to the Greek goddess Nike.
Of some fame in popular culture currently, Grimm is an American police procedural fantasy television drama series, according to Wikipedia. It debuted in the U.S. on NBC on October 28, 2011. The plots involve homicide investigator Nick Burkhardt of the Portland (Oregon) Police Department who learns he is descended from a line of guardians known as Grimms, charged with keeping balance between humanity and the mythological creatures of the world called Wesen, the German word for being or creature. Throughout the series, he must battle against an assortment of dangerous creatures, with help from his Wesen friend, Monroe, and his partner, Detective Hank Griffin.
is a Medieval English patronymic name which translates as "the son of Grimm" (petit Grimm) but which originally derives from the Norse-Viking pre 8th Century "Grimr" a personal name meaning "The Fierce One". Perhaps not surprisingly the name was equally popular with the Normans after the 1066 invasion which may account for the surname survival as Grimme, Grime, Grimes, Grimmer, Grimm etc.. In Medieval times it became regarded as a nickname for one of a fierce appearance and was considered highly complimentary. Amongst the sample recordings of London are the christenings of Elizabeth Grimmett on August 14th 1672 at St. Andrew Holborn, and Henry Grimmett on March 11th 1714 at St. Peter's, Cornhill. The first recorded spelling of the family name is shown to be that of Roger Grymet, (witness), which was dated 1251, in the "Yorkshire Assize Courts," Yorkshire, during the reign of King Edward III, known as "The Father of the Navy", 1327 - 1377.
