Before she released her debut album in 2011, Christina Grimmie entertained fans via the Internet, where she became one of the highest viewed musicians on YouTube thanks to her scaled-down performances of contemporary pop hits. She launched her YouTube page in 2009 and began covering songs by Adele, Miley Cyrus, and Selena Gomez, accompanying herself on piano and earning a large digital audience in the process. One of her viewers was Selena Gomez’s father, who eventually became her manager. With his help, Grimmie released an independent EP, 2011’s Find Me, and hit the road that summer with Selena Gomez, whose music shared a similar dance-pop sound. ~ Andrew Leahey, Rovi
