US pop singer Ariana Grande headlined a star-studded benefit concert in Manchester on Sunday that was both joyful and mournful, in aid of victims of the bombing that rocked the city last month, as security fears ran high after attackers in London killed seven people.
As well as performing many of her hits, she dueted with her boyfriend Mac Miller and Miley Cyrus and closed the concert by performing Somewhere Over the Rainbow, the classic song from the film The Wizard of Oz. "All we feel here tonight is love, resilience, positivity", Williams said. And she would say, 'Grandpa, I don't know if that would work on a pop album.' And he said, 'I promise you, it's gonna be a big hit.
Rachel Jea, 32, said she was at Grande's previous Manchester concert and felt it was important to attend Sunday's show to regain trust after the bombing.
Following his previous criticism, Piers Morgan has now praised Ariana Grande's One Love Manchester concert and has even apologised for his earlier comments. I love you guys so much and I think that the kind of love and unity we're displaying is the medicine that the world really needs right now.
"So that means that we had a totally different show planned and we had a rehearsal yesterday where we changed everything and this evening has been so light and so filled with fun and love and bright energy and I want to thank you for that".
The singer continued to reference London throughout the Black Eyed Peas' set with Ariana Grande, at her fundraising concert on Sunday 4th June, leaving fans bewildered.
"It's very important. We need to stand united against it now".
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 need to try and find a way to overcome the fear".
Seven people were killed and 48 were injured in that attack. Grande visited young fans injured in the attack at the Royal Manchester Children's Hospital on Friday.
"One Love Manchester" airs Sunday, June 4, on ABC and Freeform in the U.S. It'll be live on Freeform at 2 p.m. ET and a one-hour highlight special will air on ABC after the National Basketball Association finals.
