Superstar singer Ariana Grande has returned to Manchester as she prepares to perform a charity concert in honor of the Manchester attack victims.
Just last week, at the end of Grande’s concert at the Manchester Arena, a nail bomb had exploded, killing 22 and leaving 64 injured.
In a statement last week, Grande vowed to return to Manchester, saying: “We won’t let hate win.”
The concert, tagged One Love Manchester, aims to raise millions of pounds for the survivors of the terrorist atrocity.
Performing at the concert will be Miley Cyrus, Pharrell Williams, Katy Perry, Usher, Justin Bieber, Coldplay, The Black Eyed Peas, and more.
“The music community stands together with love and in solidarity. I am humbled to be a part of this show,” said Perry on her Twitter account.
All net ticket proceeds of the show will go directly to the We Love Manchester Emergency fund, set up by Manchester City Council in partnership with the British Red Cross to support grieving families and victims of the attack.
The fund’s total currently stands at more than £6 million, with Red Cross chief executive Mike Adamson praising the Grande’s “gesture of solidarity”.
Free tickets are available for survivors of the original attack, but many have experienced problems proving their legitimacy.
