Fans praise Ariana Grande after emotional One Love Manchester benefit gig

Posted June 08, 2017

A young girl, Lily Harrison, who was injured in last month's Manchester Arena attack, also attended the show to see her favourite pop star performing at the event, reported The Guardian.

Instead of completely cancelling the tour, Ariana, her manager Scooter Braun and her team immediately moved into action to organize the One Love Manchester benefit, which raised over $13 million.

Ariana Grande fans have begun arriving for the American pop singer's Manchester benefit concert, nervous but determined to show solidarity with the victims of the suicide bombing at an earlier Grande show in the city.

The singer, a Manchester native, wore a long, orange parka jacket on stage where he was joined by Coldplay's Chris Martin on guitar for the hit Oasis track, a day after terrorism struck again in London killing seven people and injuring 48.

Fans make a symbolic gesture at the One Love Manchester tribute.

Take That, who are from Manchester, followed with fun energy that the crowd danced to.

Asha Deliverance's son, 23-year-old Taliesin Myrddin Namkai-Meche, was one of the two men who died. Micah David-Cole Fletcher, 21, of Portland, was also stabbed and seriously injured.

Apart from that, the singer also belted out her hits "Break Free", "Side to Side", "Be Alright" and "The Way" with her boyfriend Mac Miller.

"Today's One Love Manchester benefit concert will not only continue, but will do so with greater goal", Braun said in a statement.

It included performances from Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, Liam Gallagher, Katy Perry, Coldplay and Imogen Heap, whose rendition of her cult meme classic 'Hide and Seek' went largely underreported.

Piers Morgan, who previously criticised the star in the wake of the attack, tweeted: I misjudged you, @ArianaGrande & I apologise.

United States singer Ariana Grande is to resume her world tour in Paris tonight, more than two weeks after it was interrupted by the Manchester suicide bomb attack. But that wasn't going to stop them from coming back to show support for both Grande and the 22 people killed in the attack. Katy Perry encouraged concertgoers to touch their neighbor to say "I love you".

Other performers Sunday include Pharrell Williams, Take That and Marcus Mumford.
