Grande returns to Manchester to honor victims with benefit

Grande has won millions of hearts after her fearless decision to perform in Manchester two weeks after the deadly terror attack during the concert that killed 22 people and injured 59 others.

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.

Following the performance, will.i.am took to Twitter to clear any misunderstanding that he believed the One Love Manchester charity concert was taking place in London, not Manchester.

During the star-studded concert Grande was joined by Marcus Mumford, Miley Cyrus, Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, the Black Eyed Peas, Chris Martin, Oasis, Pharrell, Little Mix and others to celebrate and honor the 22 victims of the bombing that occurred after Grande's concert on May 22.

The Manchester concert came the day after attackers targeted the heart of London, killing seven people.

Mumford urged the crowd to "not be afraid".

Other stars struck a defiant note onstage, praising the crowd for refusing to let the actions of terrorists deter them from attending the show.

The concert seemed a philosophical success, too, as Grande played host, criss-crossing the evening's lineup of musicians, all of whom pleaded the case for solidarity and love.

"All artists involved have been unwavering in their support this morning and are determined to carry on with the show".

"I want to thank so much for coming together and being so loving and strong, and unified".

As details emerged of Saturday's terror incident, Grande responded with a tweet: "Praying for London". The show was organised to raise money for the benefit the victims and families affected by the terror attack. But all had stated their commitment to the benefit concert in the week leading up to the show.

Grande wore a white sweatshirt with "One Love Manchester" written on it. He called the event a "statement that hatred and fear will never win".

Gallagher and Take That hail from Manchester. Police officers danced, medics sang along and one lively steward encouraged the crowd to clap and dance.

Grande posted on Instagram about the visit, showing her chatting with a young girl in the hospital.

The superstar brought each a sunflower and a teddy bear, according to Lauren Thorpe, whose eight-year-old daughter, Lily, suffered a shrapnel wound in her back as a result of the bombing. We're broken-hearted for parents who've lost their children and children who've lost their parents in this senseless, senseless horror.
