The Voice Season 6 2nd runner-up, Christina Grimmie, was crowned winner of Macy’s iHeartRadio Rising Star contest. She will be featured in a multi-platform campaign, delivering millions of impressions.
The 21-year-old singer will take the stage alongside the biggest acts in music at this year’s iHeartRadio Music Festival in September.
The winner was determined by votes cast via social media. Last March, Christina was chosen as one of 25 semi-finalists in the contest. She explained to her fans how to vote in this You Tube video. Fifty votes a day were permitted.
