Ariana Grande soaked up tears with cheers at the One Love Manchester benefit concert Sunday.

Sunday's One Love Manchester concert took on added brevity and bravery, considering that it was just one day after another terrorist attack in London killed seven people and injured almost 50 on Saturday night at the London Bridge and Borough Market. "When it's all counted it should be enough to take care of the victims and their families", an insider to the gossip website.

The pop singer, from Florida, led the star-studded line-up for Sunday's show called "One Love Manchester" that included Miley Cyrus, Pharrell Williams and Justin Bieber.

Grande, 23, vowed to put on the concert after her Dangerous Woman Tour stop in the Northern England city ended with a suicide bomber detonating a blast that tragically killed 22 people and left dozens injured. We love you so much. "Stay strong and united because only through that love can we help each other heal".


"The kind of love and unity that you're displaying is the medicine the world really needs right now", Ariana said at the benefit. The show sold out in under six minutes, was webcast via BBC and on Ariana Grande's YouTube page and, according to the Red Cross U.K.

She concluded the evening with a stirring encore performance of Judy Garland's "Somewhere Over the Rainbow". "And that love that you choose will give you strength".

I just want to take a moment to honor the people who were lost, who were taken.

Ariana Grande made her courageous return to Manchester over the weekend following last month's bombings outside of her concert that left 22 dead and dozens injured.


Following their sets, numerous aforementioned acts were onstage for Grande's "One Last Time". She set aside about 14,000 tickets for her fans who had survived last month's bombing.

Perry took the stage in a white minidress and a long furry coat to perform her hits "Part of Me" and "Roar".

Taylor was one of 50 Durham police officers who were assisting Greater Manchester Police during the charity concert.
