Grande returns to Manchester to honor victims with benefit

Share

Stevie Wonder delivered an emotional tribute to Manchester during Ariana Grande's One Love benefit concert last night.

"Thank you for coming together and being so loving and strong".

The empowering concert flowed with smiles and tears as dedications were made to all those affected by the tragedy.

"I don't want to feel or hear or see any fear in this building", United States singer Pharrell Williams told the crowd as he led them in a rendition of his hit single Happy.

A dancing policeman has become the unlikely star of the One Love Manchester concert and gone viral. "All we feel here tonight is love, resilience, positivity", Williams said before he launched into his hit song, "Happy" with an assist from Miley Cyrus.

Helmed by a tearful Ariana Grande, the crowd and the world watched as top acts performed honest tributes in honor of the victims of the May 22 suicide bombing in Manchester, raising more than $9 million for the British Red Cross.

Sunday's concert will raise money for victims of a suicide bombing that struck at the end of singer Ariana Grande's Manchester show May 22.

WaPost: Russians Might Get US Diplomatic Compounds Back
President Donald Trump responded to Obama's executive action by telling reporters "I think we ought to get on with our lives". And while that scandal unfolds, it appears the Russian government is attempting to expand its ability to strike at the U.S .

Grande enlisted some of music's biggest names for the benefit concert, including Justin Bieber, Katy Perry and Liam Gallagher.

Twitter uses were quick to commend the police officer, leading many to praise the efforts of the emergency services during the recent terror attacks.

Grande also got emotional while recalling her meeting with the mother of 15-year-old victim, Olivia Campbell, who died in the terrorist attack at her concert last month.

"Manchester we're strong ... we're still singing our song", he sang with the audience of 50,000.

What you might have missed though is this poignant detail: the back of her dress was heart-shaped and featured pictures of the victims of the attack.

Dozens of celebrities and singers joined Grande in the benefit gig, including Robbie Williams, Niall Horan, Katy Perry, Stevie Wonder, Pharell Williams, and David Beckham.

Bieber and Grande's manager, Scooter Braun, noted that the singer performed her first concert in Manchester exactly two years before.
