Ariana Grande's Emotional Speech In Manchester

The "One Love Manchester" benefit concert by Grande and other pop stars went on as planned in the United Kingdom city, which is still recovering from a suicide bombing at Grande's show there two weeks ago.

Before she began singing, Perry addressed the crowd of 60,000 and a worldwide audience of millions watching online and on TV.

"As much as Ariana wants to perform the track, it will be hard for her to keep her emotions in check. But love conquers fear and love conquers hate", she said.

"I encourage you to choose love even when it's hard". I encourage you to choose love even when it's hard. "Let no one take that away from you", she said. He called the event a "statement that hatred and fear will never win".

Sunday's One Love Manchester concert, held at the city's Old Trafford cricket ground, also featured Coldplay, Pharrell Williams, Take That, Imogen Heap, Robbie Williams, Marcus Mumford, Niall Horan and Little Mix. Today's One Love Manchester benefit concert will not only continue, but will do so with greater goal.

Greater Manchester Police have confirmed additional security measures have been put in place for the event.

Ariana Grande is scheduled to take the stage again Sunday in Manchester, England, for a star-studded benefit concert to help victims of a suicide bombing that struck her last concert and killed 22 people.

Manchester police said security at both events will include a "significant number of officers from both GMP and colleagues from other forces, some of which will be armed".

Afterwards Grande returned to the stage where she was joined by all of the musicians on the bill as she sang her song One Last Time saying: "Manchester, I love you with all my heart".

Braun's words are as courageous as the singer herself. "Today's One Love Manchester benefit concert will not only continue, but will do so with greater goal", manager Scooter Braun tweeted Sunday morning.

The superstar brought each a sunflower and a teddy bear, according to Lauren Thorpe, whose eight-year-old daughter, Lily, suffered a shrapnel wound in her back as a result of the bombing.

"We're broken-hearted for parents who've lost their children and children who've lost their parents in this senseless, senseless horror". She posted some of the snaps to Instagram with the simple caption, "I love you".

Just 13 days after people were killed in a bombing at her concert, Ariana Grande's headlining an all-star show in their honour.

His performance was followed by Take That, with star Gary Barlow telling the crowd: "Our thoughts are with everyone that's been affected by this but right now we want to stand strong, look at the sky, sing loud and proud".
