Music stars unite in Manchester as fans face down fears


Ariana Grande will return to the stage Sunday in Manchester, England, for a concert to raise money for victims of a suicide bombing that struck at the end of her last show almost two weeks ago.

Grande emerged onstage for the One Love Manchester concert, appearing teary-eyed and emotional as she performed her hits "Be Alright" and "Break Free". Morgan apologized to singer Ariana Grande on June 4, 2017, after initially criticizing her following the May 22, 2017, attack following her concert in Manchester, England.

Grande told the audience that her song selection was influenced by the mother of 15-year-old Olivia Campbell, who died in last month's bombing.

The all-star show was held to remember the victims of the suicide bombing at an Ariana Grande concert on May 22nd.

All proceeds from the concert went to the We Love Manchester Emergency Fund which was set up by the City Council in partnership with the British Red Cross.

An average of 10.9 million viewers watched Ariana Grande, Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, Liam Gallagher, Pharrell Williams, Coldplay and the Black Eyed Peas take to the stage. "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.

A further terrorist attack in London on Saturday night had led to speculation that Ariana may pull the plug on the concert, but the singer opted to stand strong in the face of the attackers.

The students were invited to sing with Grande after uploading their cover of the song on YouTube to honour those that were affected by the attack. "But because of you we can now represent through this as a world wide community that we will be ready, we will be fearless we will be great and we will honor our children".

The concert also will be broadcast on more than 130 iHeartRadio stations, and MTV will livestream the event on the website www.onelovemanchester.mtv.com. We won't let this divide us.
