Grande returns to Manchester to honor victims with benefit

The concert is being broadcast to millions of people in more than 50 countries across the world.

Ariana was joined by Black Eyed Peas, Robbie Williams, Take That, Justin Bieber, Coldplay, Niall Horan, Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry, Pharrell Williams, and Little Mix at the event, where fans were also treated to a surprise appearance from Manchester's own Liam Gallagher. Having been performed during Grande's original concert in Manchester, the song has become an anthem in the wake of the attack.

His performance was followed by a video message from U2's Bono before Pharrell Williams took the stage to perform his Daft Punk collaboration Get Lucky. Reaching out to his 6.5 million Instagram followers, the 38-year-old "Crash" singer shared a photo of Grande singing on stage, writing, "So happy to see that last night's concert in Manchester proved that love always prevails".

"I'll say this too about @ArianaGrande - she has a cracking voice". The tweet garnerd more than 2.7 million likes from her 46.8 million followers.

"Seeing you guys coming together was a sight to behold, we love you, we are with you, the whole world is watching", he told the crowd. "Let no one take that away from you", she said. She tearfully addressed the audience and thanked them for being strong after what happened.

A further terrorist attack in London on Saturday night had led to speculation that Ariana may pull the plug on the concert, but the singer opted to stand strong in the face of the attackers. "We need to try and find a way to overcome the fear".

Ariana Grande's One Love Manchester concert has proved no storm, no attack, no nothing will ever stop people from coming together as the pop diva's gig was a successful show with an nearly 50,000-strong crowd in attendance. This time, though, it would be all about her fans.




"Over 10,000 unscrupulous applications", however, were made for free tickets, Ticketmaster said, with people applying despite not having attended the original concert.

"From the day we started putting the Dangerous Woman Tour together, I said that this show, more than anything else, was meant to be a safe space for my fans", the Florida native penned.

Islamic State Group, also known as ISIS, took responsibility for the attack.

Many viewers said the moment captured the mood of the evening, which featured several emotional performances by Grande, 23.

Although the concert was due to heartbreaking circumstances, Ariana Grande kept the night joyous and hopeful, deciding to focus on the positive and on love.
