Almost two weeks after a deadly suicide bombing at her concert in Manchester, US star Ariana Grande is planning to press ahead with a charity gig later on Sunday despite a terror attack on the streets of London.
Grande has 107 million followers on Instagram, and she posted a photo of her visit to the Royal Manchester children's hospital on Friday.
Adam Harrison said his daughter Lily "felt like a rock star" after meeting her idol.
"This means more to us than all the wonderful things people have done this week".
Another mother, Lauren Thorpe, tells CNN her eight-year-old daughter Lily was so happy to get the visit. "Never seen jaden so happy!even cried again myself".
Meanwhile, police investigating the Manchester Arena attack, which killed 22 people, have made a further arrest. Others stars expected at the concert include Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, Coldplay, Usher, Pharrell Williams and Miley Cyrus. Proceeds will go to the Red Cross' "We Love Manchester Emergency Fund".
It took place as fans and families were leaving a concert by singer Ariana Grande.
Sunday's show is due to take place at the Emirates Old Trafford cricket ground, which houses around 50,000 people for a music event. "She knelt by her and sat on her bed with her and told her 'I'm so proud of you, you are so strong and doing really well'".
Ariana Grande tweeted a tribute to the people of London following last night's attack, tweeting "Praying for London".
More than 10,000 tickets for the concert were set aside for fans who were at Grande's concert in Manchester.
Ariana, 23, suspended her Dangerous Woman tour, including cancelling two shows at London's O2 Arena, following the attack in Manchester on May 22, 2017.
Eleven men are still being held by the British police in connection with the investigation.
2FM will be broadcasting the show live with Nicky Byrne set to host the show from 6pm. In a statement on Twitter last week, Grande said of the attack: 'We won't let this divide us. This is the 17th arrest since the start of the investigation into the May 22 bombing.
