Marcus Mumford holds minute's silence at One Love Manchester

All proceeds will be donated to the victims of the Manchester bombing at Grande's concert on May 22.

Coldplay joined Grande on stage to sing Oasis's hit Don't Look Back In Anger, which has been an anthem for Manchester since the tragedy.

Grande is scheduled to perform a benefit concert in Manchester on Sunday night. "I am so honoured to be at this incredible event surrounded by all you unbelievable people/ And for me the most important responsibility we have on this entire planet is to take care of one another - and look what we're doing right here". "I love you guys so much and I think that the kind of love and unity that you're displaying is the medicine the world really needs right now".

"We want to thank you all for joining us", Mr Braun said. "I'm not gonna let go of hope". To the families, we love you so much.

Thousands of people, some as young as 5 or 6, sang along, danced, wiggled, got a little weepy at times, but ultimately found, as Grande's manager Scooter Braun put it ahead of the event, a "greater purpose" in honoring and celebrating those who lost their lives to terrorism.

"We came to show our respect, not just for Manchester but also for London", said Jason Geal, who was attending with his wife and three daughters.

He added: "As unfortunately we saw yesterday, this will test us, and will show its face again. Everybody say, 'We honor you.' Everybody say, 'We love you'".

The show is expected to bring in around $2.6 million.

British singer Marcus Mumford held a moment of silence before performing at the Manchester benefit concert Sunday. Backed by two singers and a guitarist, she delivered the song wearing all white, singing, "Throw your sticks and your stones, throw your bombs and your blows, but you're not gonna break my soul".

Pharrell Williams praised the people of Manchester for their courage.

Before welcoming Cyrus to perform Happy, Williams said: "You know why I'm bowing, I'm bowing because despite all the things that have been going on in this place, I don't feel or hear or see any fear in this building".

He said: "What an wonderful thing we are doing tonight, would you not agree?"

Grande had arranged Sunday's concert at Manchester's Old Trafford cricket ground in tribute to the 22 people killed and 116 injured at the Manchester Arena on 22 May.

He then referenced the terror attack in London last night (June 3), the second attack in the last few weeks following the May 22 bombing outside Grande's concert at the Manchester Arena.

Additional security measures were in place for the concert following Saturday night's marauding van and knife attack in London.
