Ariana Grande was joined by international musicians to perform a One Love concert in Manchester for the victims of the Arena Attack and raised £2 million!
Ariana Grande promised to return to Manchester to perform a concert in honour of those that lost their lives or were injured during the bombing at the Manchester Arena.
A week and a half after the attack Ariana and a massive selection of international musicians and performers joined forces to make a stand and show their support. The One Love Concert raised over £2 million for the victims and families of the Arena Attack.
The concert was aired live on TV and people were able to text in donations. It took place at the Emirates Old Trafford cricket ground. Everything was arranged by Scooter Braun, Ariana’s manager.
‘Manchester, your bravery is our hope. Because of you, we can now represent through this as a worldwide community, that we will be ready, we will be fearless and we will be great.’ – Scooter Braun
Miley Cyrus, Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, Coldplay, Pharrell, Little Mix, Robbie Williams, Black Eyed Peas, Niall Horan and Take That, were just some of the artists that performed. Other celebrities made video appearances such as U2’s Bono and David Beckham.
While the concert raised £2 million, £10 million has been raised since the attack took place on 22 May 2017. All the proceeds are going to the We Love Manchester Emergency Fund, which will help the victims of the attack.
