Trainor addressed the crowd at the BLI Summer Jam in New York Saturday night and asked them to sing along to her 2015 hit "Like I'm Gonna Lose You" as "a shout-out to our girl, Christina."

We love you @therealgrimmie ❤️

The audience members were quick to join in the song, which includes the lyrics, "I won't take you for granted, 'cause we'll never know when / When we'll run out of time, so I'm gonna love you / Like I'm gonna lose you."

And when Trainor asked them to raise their phones to light up the night, they did that, too.

Trainor wasn't the only artist to take the stage in honor of late singer. Selena Gomez and Charlie Puth both belted out tributes to their friend over the weekend.

And Fifth Harmony also took the stage at the BLI event, but rather than singing for Grimmie, the women described her as "such a beautiful soul, such a beautiful talent" before honoring her with a moment of silence.
