Ariana Grande’s benefit concert “One Love Manchester” took place in Manchester on the day following terrorist attack on the London Bridge and Borough Market in London. Grande was joined by pop’s greatest stars: Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, Coldplay, Katy Perry, Usher, Take That, Pharrell Williams and Niall Horan. 50,000 fans attended the “One Love Manchester” benefit concert which was also streamed live.
The goal of the concert was to raise money for “We Love Manchester Emergency Fund” created by the Manchester City Council and the British Red Cross to support victims and survivors of the May 22nd terrorist bombing. According to reports, the concert raised over 3 million dollars to help those affected by the terrorist attack in Manchester cope in the aftermath of the tragedy.
Ariana Grande has proven that she is a star. In spite of the tragedy at the Manchester Arena in Manchester, England, that killed and injured many and without a doubt traumatized all: the concert-goers and Grande with her crew, Ariana rose to the occasion.
She didn’t seek refuge in retreating but – in a record time! – organized a benefit concert to help those immediately affected. Ariana Grande visited injured children in Manchester’s hospitals. She stood through fear with her fans.
At only 23 Ariana Grande has shown courage, compassion and generosity of spirit, remarkable at any age. Ariana Grande is a talented pop star and she just became a lot more than that! She is a role model for other artists and for all girls, not to mention: a great ambassador – no, not for America but – for Americans! Ariana Grande rocks!
