Ariana Grande puts her whole heart into bringing happiness to people. But on May 22, 2017, following her concert at Manchester (UK) arena, a 22-year-old suicide bomber detonated a shrapnel-laden explosive device at the exit. Twenty-three adults, youth, and children were killed and more than 100 were injured. This broke Ariana’s heart, and she cancelled a number of European dates for her world tour following the incident.
Grande will now be holding a benefit concert in memory of the victims of the attack in Manchester. The show is named One Love Manchester and will take place Sunday, June 4, 2017 in the city. All net proceeds from ticket sales will go to the We Love Manchester Emergency Fund, set up by Manchester City Council in partnership with the British Red Cross to aid the victims and the families affected.
Canadian singer Justin Bieber will be performing at the concert, as will British groups Coldplay and Take That (the latter formed in Manchester), Irish singer Niall Horan, and American soloists, Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, Pharrell Williams, and Usher.
The concert will be broadcast on BBC TV and radio with a digital partner streaming the concert for worldwide viewing.
Furthermore, Ariana has offered free tickets to those who attended the May 22 event which saw the bombing.
