Ariana Grande Pays Tribute And Raises Over $2 Million For Manchester Attack Victims
A little positivity…
Ariana Grande showed her strength last night in front of 500,000 fans by returning and performing a tribute in the same city where 22 of her unsuspecting fans lost their lives at her concert, just days ago.
On May 22nd, a suicide bomber claimed the lives of children and parents who went to enjoy her Manchester Arena show. Ariana reportedly broke down after the horrible incident. Although she was at a loss for words, she apologized to fans on Twitter.
Ariana was criticized by British troll Piers Morgan for “leaving” after her traumatic concert experience. He has since apologized. Here she comforted a 12 year old singer who couldn’t control tears during her choir performance.
Yesterday she returned to the city, ready to pay her respect at “One Love”, a concert put together to raise funds and pay tribute to fans who lost their lives during the terror attack. Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, Coldplay, Pharrell Williams, the Black Eyed Peas, Miley Cyrus, Liam Gallagher, Robbie Williams, Little Mix and Niall Horan also performed for free. They raise £2m toward the We Love Manchester Emergency Fund according to The Daily Mail.
Ariana says she also change around her set to appease the mother of one of the victims.
‘I had the pleasure of meeting Olivia’s mummy a few days ago and I started to cry and gave her a big hug and she said ‘stop crying, because Olivia wouldn’t have wanted you to cry’.
‘And then she told me Olivia would have wanted to hear the hits. We had a different show planned and we had a rehearsal yesterday and we changed everything.’
God bless her British fans, they’ve been through a lot. Just the night before the concert, 7 people from the area were killed on the London Bridge.
