Christina Grimmie's family have released more of the late singer's music.

The four-song Side B EP was released on Friday (21Apr17), and is a follow up to the Side A EP Christina released back in February last year (16), just a few months before her tragic death.

The 22-year-old was fatally shot by gunman Kevin Loibl on 10 June (16) at the Plaza Live venue in Orlando, Florida, where she was signing autographs at a meet-and-greet following her concert performance. Loibl later took his own life.

The new tracks are I Only Miss You When I Breathe, Invisible, The Game and a re-produced version of Jason Mraz's hit I Won't Give Up, which Christina performed while competing on U.S. TV talent show The Voice.

Republic Records, ZXL Music, and Christina's family also announced the new tracks will be featured on the new full-length album All Is Vanity on 2 June (17), the same day as National Gun Violence Awareness Day in the U.S.

The family also revealed they have a surprise in store for her fans, and that they'll be making a special announcement on The Voice on 25 April (17).

The news comes after Christina's family shared an animated video for her song Invisible, featuring the star as a superhero to mark what would've been her 23rd birthday last month (Mar17).

"We created this video as a special tribute to honour that love and her desire to always bring light and love into the heart of others," Christina's family posted on YouTube, reported Us Weekly.

Her brother, Marcus Grimmie, also shared a screenshot of the video on Instagram with the caption, "I know you would love this sis (sic)."
