Ariana Grande’s Tribute To Manchester Attack Victims Is Going To Make You Weep

Ariana Grande returned to Manchester on Sunday to lead a stunning highly emotional concert at Manchester’s Old Trafford Cricket Ground.

Armed police will be present, and people have been asked not to bring bags or rucksacks (those who are unable to avoid bringing them will have them searched). The benefit concert titled ‘One Love Manchester’ was a veritable who’s who’s in the pop world with stars performing to show their solidarity with the residents and victims in the aftermath of the terrorist attack almost two weeks ago which left 22 innocent victims dead and more than 50 seriously wounded.

The concert was kicked off by the band Mumford and Sons frontman Marcus Mumford with a minute’s silence, telling the 50,000 strong crowd, “Let’s not be afraid”. Take That took to the stage to perform Giants from the album Wonderland, Take That ended with a moving rendition of Rule The World. Former Take That member Robbie Williams was welcomed on stage by his former bandmates and went on to dedicate his opening number Strong to Manchester, altering the lyrics of the chorus to “Manchester we are strong/we are strong”.

Robbie then sang “Angels” before ending his set with a final sing-along of the “Manchester we are strong” chorus.
Pharrell Williams was next, singing the hit Get Lucky and being joined by Miley Cyrus for a duet of the song Happy.
The star of the show Ariana Grande took to the stage and performed ‘Be Alright’ and ‘Break Free’ encouraging the emotional crowd to sing along with her.

Ariana Grande returned to the stage to perform a duet with Victoria Monet on the song ‘Better days’ followed by ‘Where is The Love’ with the Black Eyed Peas. The highlight of the evening was when Parrs Wood High School choir sang ‘My Everything’ alongside Ariana Grande, the 24 strong choir had recorded a version of Ariana Grande’s ‘My Everything’ last week to raise funds for the victims. Many other stars performed at the show and it is a concert not many will forget for its powerful message of love and defiance in the face of adversity.
