Jessica is struggling to put together songs for her upcoming showcase and is having boyfriend problems too. After a dialogue introduces the situation, Christina sings her song "Snow White," whose lyrics echo the Disney classic's song: "Someday my prince will come."
The video ends with Jessica asking her friend, "Do you ever feel like everything you do is wrong?" In turn, her friend gives her sage advice: "Let your feet follow your heart."
Brian Teefey, Christina's manager at the time of her death, said in a Facebook post that "Snow White" is the first chapter in "The Ballad of Jessica Blue," a 4-part series of music videos that Christina worked on earlier in the year.
"Christina shot these videos back in February with about 6 hours of choreography and 4 days of filming before she left for the 'Wildfire' tour. Everyone worked so hard on this project, putting in extra long days on set to ensure we got the best quality project we could for the minimal budget we had. I couldn't be more proud of her and everyone involved for the labor of love that was put into this project," wrote Brian.
There will be one "Jessica Blue" video released every week of August.
Brian called the series "a visual celebration of Side A," Christina's EP. The songs featured in the series – "Snow White," "Anybody's You," "Deception," and "Without Him" – are all part of Side A.
"The Ballad of Jessica Blue" was directed by King Hollis of Media 13 Studios.
After making a name for herself on YouTube, Christina joined The Voice and was coached by Adam Levine. She was also close to Selena Gomez, who Christina sang backup vocals for, and who is the stepdaughter of her manager Brian.
Christina's death shocked fans around the world, as the 22-year-old musician was shot at a meet-and-greet after one of her concerts in June.
Her brother, Marcus Grimmie, was hailed a hero for tackling her shooter immediately after the incident, preventing any harm done to others at the scene. – Rappler.com
