Ariana Grande’s Powerful ‘One Manchester Concert’ Raises Over $10m for Victims
Ariana Grande successful all-star concert in Manchester held in honour of the victims of the May 22 bombing has been described as a powerful event.
The singer was joined by colleagues including Justin Bieber, who gave an important message of solidarity to the audience after this performance, Katy Perry, who encouraged audience members to hold each other and declare once for each other, and many other moving performances that drew tears to the eyes of the performers and the audience.
Ariana Grande closed out the 3-hour One Love Manchester benefit concert with “Somewhere Over the Rainbow”, an emotional rendition for the 22 people who died, and near the end she couldn’t go on but fans encouraged her.
According to the Red Cross UK, the concert raised over $9 million. “Well, the fantastic news is we’ve already raised around 7 million pounds [$9 million],” chief executive Mike Adamson told the Associated Press. “And we expect to raise another one and half million pounds from ticket sales tonight and then further funding from the TV rights and merchandising. So, we’re really looking to appeal that’s going to move towards 10 million pounds.”
On social media, the singer is being applauded and Manchester remains a top trending conversation all over the world, with many people applauding the singer for her bravery and love for the fans who were hurt on that day in May.
