Ariana Grande Singing the Hits Because of Manchester Victim's Mother


For the occasion, Ms Grande wore a white oversized jumped emblazoned with One Love Manchester.

Preparations are underway for the tribute concert to the victims of the Manchester bombing.

Grande thanked those in attendance.

"So I just wanted to come for closure - and tell people that we actually aren't scared". I'm not gonna let go of love.

Singer Robbie Williams then took to the stage to lead the audience in a rousing rendition of his Manchester tribute song, "Strong".

Agreeing, a third added: "Will I Am. Everybody say, 'We honor you, and we love you'". No matter what is happening in the world, God is in the midst and he loves you.

"She left 5 minutes early because she was exhausted", Laura said of her daughter, who was dressed in an Ariana Grande t-shirt.

But they were determined to come back to show support for both Grande and the 22 people killed in the attack.

"Manchester, your bravery is our hope", Braun said. "You guys made that decision, you looked fear right in the face and you said, 'No, we are Manchester, and the world is watching'".

Ariana Grande, Niall Horan perform at 'One Love Manchester' benefit concert
On Friday the 23-year-old singer made a surprise visit to injured fans being treated at the Royal Manchester Children's Hospital. The star-studded event comes nearly two weeks after 22 people died during an attack at Grande's show in Manchester, England .

Throughout the concert, there were many emotional moments that moved the crowds to tears.

British singer Marcus Mumford kicked off the show and held a moment of silence before performing. The leader of rock band Mumford & Sons sang "Timshel" while strumming his guitar.

Earlier in the evening, Cyrus sang "Happy" alongside Pharrell Williams. "The only thing we'll feel here tonight is love, and positivity".

Grande, 23, tweeted that she was "broken" in the immediate aftermath of the May 22 bombing that claimed the lives of 22 and wounded more than 100 at her Manchester, England, show.

Her boyfriend Mac Miller also joined her on stage for a surprise performance of "Dang!"

USA pop singer Ariana Grande returned to Manchester to headline a star-studded benefit concert on Sunday that was both joyful and mournful, in aid of victims of the bombing that rocked the city last month, as security fears ran high after attackers in London killed seven people.

The "One Love Manchester" concert will take place less than two weeks after the attack at Grande's concert, and a day after attackers killed seven people in the heart of London.

Just hours after a terror attack in London Saturday night, Grande's show promoter took to Twitter to assure fans the concert would go on as planned.

On Friday, Grande visited some of her injured fans at the Royal Manchester Children's Hospital.
