Christina Grimmie has been "Internet famous" as a YouTube star for a few years, but when that failed to develop into chart success, she took a big risk and auditioned for the US version of The Voice. Luckily it paid off, and she ended up reaching the final, following some impressive performances. Must Be Love is Christina’s first single since The Voice, and although I don’t think it’s quite strong enough to make her the first big pop star to come from the show, I really like it. The song has been compared to KT Tunstall, who she is a fan of, but it’s a much more poptastic version of that sound. It’s catchy, sassy and youthful, a great start to her post-Voice career.
