Ariana Grande's Manchester Benefit Will Be Immortalized in Pop History


Later this week, the number will get bigger when the money from One Love Manchester ticket sales is added to the total, the British Red Cross said. Since the attack on Ariana's concert at the Manchester Arena staggering $12 million (£9.6 million) has been raised by members of the public.

Ariana, who is set to resume her tour in Paris tonight (6 June) is also on course to reach number 1 on the official United Kingdom singles chart with her song "One Last Time".

Grande returned to Manchester on Sunday night for a benefit concert in aid of the victims of the attack. One injured fan attended her concert on Sunday.

Ariana Grande is ready to step back onto the stage for her Dangerous Woman tour, and we are so proud of her.

Nicaragua , though, never joined because it didn't think the agreement goes far enough toward preventing unsafe amounts of global warming.

Ariana, who organised the concert in just a few days, has been supporting the city since the terrorist attack on May 22, which killed 22 people. The set features live performances by Pharrell Williams, Miley Cyrus, Mac Miller, The Black Eyed Peas, and many more.

The whopping sum has been raised through ticket sales, merchandise, and other donations, with over £2 million alone coming from text message donations from within the United Kingdom during the three hours that the concert was aired for.

Ariana will now release the track to help raise funds for the We Love Manchester Emergency Fund and British Red Cross, according to The Sun.

Every artist had an emotional message, with common threads of togetherness and love prevailing; Grande wrapped up the event with a moving performance of "Somewhere Over The Rainbow". "I want to thank you so much for coming together and being so loving and strong and unified".

Grande drew cheers when she told the crowd: "The kind of unity you're displaying is the medicine the world needs right now".
