Grande Returns to Manchester For Benefit Concert

Ariana Grande paid tribute to the city of Manchester, England, on Sunday with an energetic, all-star concert that raised millions for victims of a suicide bombing that tore through her last performance in the city outside of Manchester Arena nearly two weeks ago.

Manchester, England was given a spirited benefit concert dedicated to the victims of Islamic terror which perpetrated an attack on May 22 from a suicide bomber.

The performers included Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, and headed by Ariana Grande who originally performed during the attack which left 22 dead and nearly 60 wounded. Grande, 23, gave an emotional performance in what was known as the ‘One Love Manchester concert.’

The British Red Cross reportedly raised $13 million for the We Love Manchester Emergency Fund which took place as part of the show’s purpose.

Grande teared up during the end of the event to the audience’s cheers of her rendition of “Over the Rainbow” by Judy Garland.

“Manchester, I love you with all of my heart,” Grande said before the performance. She also said it after singing “One Last Time” with Miley Cyrus, Pharrell and more of the show’s performers standing behind her to show their support for England.
