Ariana Grande leads star-studded One Love Manchester concert

Ariana Grande leads star-studded One Love Manchester concert”

Twenty-two people were killed, and 119 injured, when a suicide bomber targeted the Manchester Arena where Ariana's concert was being held.

The album's proceeds will purportedly go to a charity benefiting the victims of last month's attack, which killed at least 22 people and wounded nearly 60 more.

Black Eyed Peas' 15 year old hit 'Where Is The Love' stood the test of time again, after the American group was joined on stage by Ariana Grande.

The track was recorded during Grande's massive charity gig for the victims of the Manchester attacks this Sunday. A surprise appearance from Oasis" Liam Gallagher saw the singer perform a rendition of "Live Forever' with Coldplay before throwing his tambourine into the crowd.

The benefit show managed to raise $2.6 million for those affected by the Manchester bombing, which claimed 22 lives on May 22 and brought to stage numerous big names. But she returned to the city on Sunday for an all-star benefit concert for victims that raised some $3 million and helped turn the former Nickelodeon child star into a national hero.

Another highlight marked this concert: the cover of the song Ariana Grande My Everything by students of the choir of the school Parrs Wood Manchester.

"First show back tonight", she wrote on Instagram. Just before the concert, she re-released her song "One Last Time" as a charity single benefitting the Manchester victims.

She certainly showered Manchester with love.

Tipping says: "We can't let them stop us". Grande revealed that ahead of the concert, she met with Campbell's mother.

Proceeds from the show, which will broadcast live across the globe, will go to an emergency fund set up by the city of Manchester and the British Red Cross.
