Ariana Grande Delivers For Her Fans In Manchester

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 in support of 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 with 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 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 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!

2017 Women's March in Los Angeles

2017 Women’s March in Los Angeles

US Celebrity Blog would be amiss if it didn’t acknowledge celebrities who have shown their true colors during the recent Women’s Marches in Washington D.C. and throughout the United States.

We all know that it takes a lot to become recognized as an artist, but the rewards of this recognition can come with both, fame and fortune. Not every artist – or a celebrity – uses fame well. (Some turn it into notoriety.) But there is a huge group of entertainment industry’s rich and famous that has made us proud to be their fans during the Women’s Marches in the United States on Saturday January 21st 2017. All of them deserve to be acknowledged and thanked for supporting what’s right for us, our Country and its future.

There is no way to list all of the participating celebrities so excuse us please if we didn’t give you proper credit. Among the celebrities who stood up for American values are:

Jake and Maggie Gyllenhaal, Natalie Portman, Blake Lively, Alicia Keys, Vanessa Hudgens, Miley Cyrus, Ariana Grande, Mandy Moore, Jane Fonda, Chrissy Teigen, John Legend, Emma Watson, Drew Barrymore, Amy Schumer, Ashley Judd, Felicity Huffman, Idina Menzel, Zendaya, Gillian Anderson, Helen Mirren, America Ferrera, Katy Perry, Scarlett Johansson, Cher, Jessica Chastain, Katie Holmes, Rihanna, Jamie Lee Curtis, Whoopi Goldberg, Yoko Ono, Cynthia Nixon, Rosie Perez, Mindy Kaling, Bella Thorne, Uzo Aduba, Emily Ratajkowski, Elizabeth Gillies, Amber Tamblyn, Janet Mock, Lena Dunham, Melissa Harris-Perry, Diane Guerrero, David Beckman, Charlie Brotman, Suki Waterhouse, Sir Ian McKellan, Rita Ora and others. (That’s not counting Chelsea Handler, Maria Bello and Charlize Theron who led a march in Sundance, Utah.)

There are some celebrities who have done their part in advance (think Meryl Streep!) and some who couldn’t participate due to other commitments but have nevertheless expressed their support (i.e. Bruce Springsteen and Kim Kardashian).

In addition to the entertainment industry’s celebrities there were real-life legends standing up for what’s right. Some of them were: Angela Davis, Gloria Steinem and Michael Moore. All of them made us proud to be American!

US Celebrity Blog thanks each and every celebrity who publicly took a stand for our values: women rights, human rights, social justice, immigrant rights, affordable healthcare, LGBT and transgender rights and many other issues dear to us which are threatened by the new administration.

We, the Americans who understand what’s at stake sincerely appreciate your support. The rest of us – I’m referring to the prodigal children, of course! – will thank you too: sooner or later.

Ariana Grande1
Ariana Grande (Ariana Grande-Butera, born June 26, 1993), known professionally as Ariana Grande, is an American singer-songwriter and actress. She began her career singing on a cruise ship, at sporting events, and with various orchestras in South Florida.

Career
Ariana appeared in the Broadway musical 13, before landing the role of Cat Valentine on the Nickelodeon television series Victorious in 2009.
After the show ended, Grande rose to prominence as a teen idol on her own spinoff, Sam & Cat, along with iCarly actress Jennette McCurdy.

As she kept herself busy with television, Grande began to pursue a musical career appearing on the soundtrack, Music from Victorious (2011),
and subsequently signed a recording contract with Republic Records.

She launched a music career after the release of her debut studio album, Yours Truly (2013), which debuted at number one on the U.S. Billboard 200. The album’s lead single, “The Way”, became a top ten hit on the Billboard Hot 100 with critics comparing her wide vocal range to Mariah Carey.

Grande developed a maturing image while promoting her second studio album, My Everything (2014), which became her second consecutive number-one album in the United States.
The album produced the successful tracks “Problem” and “Break Free”.

Awards
Some of her achievements include New Artist of the Year at the 2013 American Music Awards, Favorite Breakout Artist at the 40th People’s Choice Awards, and Breakthrough Artist of the Year by the Music Business Association.

Philanthropy
At the age of ten, Grande co-founded the South Florida youth singing group Kids Who Care, which performed for charitable fund-raising events, raising over $500,000 for charities in 2007 alone.

In the summer of 2009, as a member of the charitable organization Broadway in South Africa, Grande performed and taught music and dance to children in Gugulethu, South Africa along with her brother Frankie. Grande also partnered with Kleenex on its “Shield Sneeze Swish” campaign. After watching Blackfish, she urged fans to stop supporting SeaWorld.

She was featured on Seventeen magazine in a March 2013 public campaign “Delete Digital Drama” to end online bullying along with Bridgit Mendler and Kat Graham.

In September 2014, Grande participated at the charitable Stand Up to Cancer television program, performing the title track “My Everything” in dedication to her grandfather, who had died from cancer in July.
