June was a rollercoaster of a month for fans of Maroon 5, Adam Levine, and The Voice. 

The month started off with the tragic death of Christina Grimmie, a young girl who auditioned for NBC's show The Voice in 2014 and made it to the finale as a contestant on Adam Levine's team. Grimmie's passing occurred on the early morning of June 11th after an incident that happened at The Plaza Live in Orlando, Florida the night before. Grimmie was shot three times which lead to her unfortunate death hours later at a local hospital.

In other news, June was full of hints and revealing secrets as members of Maroon 5 spilled some beans on possible new Maroon 5 music. Back in April, frontman Adam Levine spoke about new Maroon 5 music on Live with Kelly and Michael, stating "We are working on some stuff right now. It's tough." He continued by saying "The Voice is happening, we're in and out of the studio. Baby stuff is happening." A couple months later, on June 22nd, founding member Jesse Carmichael revealed on his live broadcast on Periscope that Maroon 5 will indeed release a new single this summer. "We recorded a new Maroon 5 song," he flat-out said on his live broadcast. "It's coming out soon. It's going to be awesome." Ever since, fans have been eager to hear new music from the band.

Speaking of which, many fans expected Maroon 5 to drop the new song on National Maroon 5 Day, a music holiday Maroon 5 launched on June 25th to help fund UNICEF and UNICEF USA, who raise money to help poor children around the world. #Maroon5Day was also held in celebration of the 14th anniversary of the release of Maroon 5's debut studio effort, Songs About Jane, which was released on June 25, 2002.

Other Maroon 5 anniversaries that occurred in June was the 2 year anniversary of the single release "Maps" (June 16, 2014), the 4 year anniversaries of the single "One More Night" (June 19, 2012), and their fourth album Overexposed (June 26, 2012), the 5 year anniversary of "Moves Like Jagger", featuring Christina Aguilera (June 21, 2011), and the 6 year anniversary of the single "Misery" (June 20, 2010).

Also, one of Maroon 5's touring members, Sam Farrar, celebrated his 38th birthday on June 29th.

Maroon 5 keyboardist PJ Morton also released some new music in June as well. "First Began", an R&B-soul single, was released to Soundcloud on June 23rd. Listen to it here below.

Can't wait to see what happens in July!
