Grande Returns to Manchester to Honor Victims with Benefit

UK Music has hailed the One Love Manchester concert as "an act of defiance" as a range of stars came together to raise £2m in donations for charity.

The concert was created to honor those affected by the bad attack and explosion that went off at Grande's May 22 performance, and all proceeds went to the We Love Manchester Emergency Fund, as coordinated by the British Red Cross and Manchester City Council.

The concert served as a catharsis for many in Manchester and all of Britain, moving British tabloid journalist Piers Morgan to write Grande a lengthy public apology for doubting her courage.

When Little Mix took to the stage at Ariana Grande's One Love Manchester concert on Sunday evening, they showed off their impressive vocals, killer dance moves and clear empathy for the circumstances.

Her re-release of "One Last Time" has topped Apple's chart, followed swiftly behind by the original version of the song, which has placed fourth. Backed by two singers and a guitarist, she delivered the song wearing all white, singing, "Throw your sticks and your stones, throw your bombs and your blows, but you're not gonna break my soul". Katy Perry encouraged concertgoers to touch their neighbor to say "I love you". "She's strong for her fans". Justin Bieber, a guitar on his chest, led a chant of "love".

She herself was joined by other artists including Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, Black Eyed Peas, Coldplay and Robbie Williams.

"Our thoughts are with everyone who has been affected by this", singer Gary Barlow said.

Suicide bomber Salman Abedi detonated a nail bomb just outside the Arena, causing an explosion that killed 22 people and injured 119.
