Ariana Grande delivers for Manchester

The singer, who organized the One Love Manchester concert, appeared alongside acts including Coldplay, Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, Pharrell Williams, Take That, Robbie Williams and former Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher, himself from Manchester.

The star-studded "One Love Manchester" benefit show allowed Ariana Grande to perform alongside some of her famous friends, but it also allowed others to collaborate in unexpected ways. The ex-footballer went on to praise everyone at the concert - "everyone in the crowd and all the artists" - for what they were doing.

Fans that watched the concert through live streams or at home on BBC One, which almost received nearly 11 million views, were all expressing their appreciation over the concert on Twitter.

In less than two weeks after the May 22 horror, she pulled together Sunday's benefit at the city's Old Trafford Cricket Ground.

Greater Manchester Police have confirmed a terrorist attack has killed at least 22 at the MEN Arena as concertgoers were leaving an Ariana Grande show.

When Grande returned to Britain last Friday, she did make up for lost time by visiting a hospital to comfort fans warded for injuries. The concert was confirmed last week on a Twitter post by the singer.

The fans also sang some of Grande's songs and wrote messages paying homage to the victims.

The total of viewers for the concert is not yet known since it aired on many platforms across the world.

But Grande, the 23-year-old pop star who grew up in Boca Raton and went to school in Coconut Creek, gave the world a sorely needed lesson in inspiration Sunday. The concert raised more than $2.58 million during its three hours.
