CAIRO – 5 June 2017: Ariana Grande and her team gave a benefit concert Sunday called “One Love Manchester” to honor the 22 victims who were killed by a suicide bomber after a Grande concert on Monday, May 22.
According to The Independent, around 50,000 people attended the event at Old Trafford, which took place two weeks after the suicide attack.
Other singers joined Grande on the stage, including Justin Bieber, ColdPlay, Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, Liam Gallagher, Pharrell Williams, Take That, Niall Horan, Little Mix, Robbie Williams and the Black Eyed Peas.
Grande, 23, organized the benefit to raise money for those who were affected by the suicide bombing at her Manchester Arena concert. She hoped to raise at least £2 million ($1.7 million) to give to the ‘We Love Manchester’ emergency fund.
All artists performed for free.
