Obviously, he — like all of us — is completely heartbroken over his sister’s senseless, unnecessary death.

Marcus wrote in his FB post (below):

“By now I’m sure many you have heard that Christina has passed away due to gunfire after a show. I really don’t have much to say about anything and am just blown away with the prayers and support. I PROMISE I will respond to everyone when I can.

Christina was more than my sister. She was a partner in life. A superstar. A goofball. Introverted. And a friend to everyone. Genuinely. But above all…she was my baby sister. She loved the Lord and her family and was always there for me and I honestly don’t know what ill do without her.

But please, if you are reading this far, I would love all and any of you to post pics of you and her and/or memories you have of her down in the comments. I will cherish it forever and always. So please do that for me. Thank you all so so much. The support has been crazy and I do feel a peace. I just don’t have any words. I love you all.”


Marcus was the one who tackled the gunman after he shot Christina. The gunman shot and killed himself during that struggle.

Here’s the full post, including pics he shared of Christina (below):

So sad. So gut-wrenching, so personal, so moving, and so, so tragic.
