One Love Manchester benefit concert

Williams asked, but the question was unnecessary, as the crowd was doing a fine job of that already.

The sentiment was echoed by fellow pop star, Justin Bieber, who said "You guys are so fearless". Proceeds from the event are going to the We Love Manchester Emergency Fund. "That's how we know there is no end to love".

Other artists performing include Miley Cyrus, Justin Bieber, Take That, Katy Perry and others.

"I don't want to feel or hear or see any fear in this building", USA singer Pharrell Williams told the crowd as he led them in a rendition of his hit single "Happy". "Our response to this violence must be to come closer together, to help each other, to love more, to sing louder and to live more kindly and generously than we did before".

Officials from the Greater Manchester police force noted that they are working with bosses at ticket agency Ticketmaster on the possibility of taking action against some of the 10,000 people who made "unscrupulous applications", the Daily Mirror reported. I am pleased to say we have the full support of Greater Manchester police and the government and are assured the safety of all those attending is the highest priority.

Cyrus left the stage for Niall Horan to take over.

Greater Manchester Police are now reassuring the public that today's (June 4th) concert will take place. His debut solo single, "This Town", was then performed in tribute to Manchester.

Ariana's manager Scooter Braun has also said the concert now has a "greater purpose" following the London terror attack, and that all the acts involved are showing "unwavering" support. She appeared teary-eyed and emotional as she performed "Be Alright" and "Break Free". Grande's concert's expected to bring in $2 million, if not more, for the cause.

Evie's mum Karen said: 'She came in and she was just lovely, adorable and humble - and all over the girls.

Imogen Heap sat at the piano for a stirring performance of "Hide and Seek".

Some of the choir's members attended Grande's May 22 concert.

Grande and Miller have been friends since the two collaborated on her 2013 track, "The Way", but didn't start dating until they reconnected last September.

I'd like to wrap my arms around each and every one of you and tell you thank you from the bottom of our hearts for having us. "They got together and they just wanted to do something". You are so strong. "I love you guys so much and I think that the kind of love and unity that you're displaying is the medicine the world really needs right now".

Meanwhile, fans visited in hospital by Ariana Grande on Friday continue to share their delight by posting photos and comments on social media.
