Grande returns to Manchester to honour victims with benefit

The pop star's 48-year-old mother joined fans in the crowd at the One Love Manchester show at Old Trafford Cricket Ground, telling them, 'Do not be afraid, ' according to The Guardian.

Justin Bieber - who also performed at the event - makes an appearance at number two, featuring in Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee's track "Despacito", which has gained global recognition and stormed the charts in recent weeks.

Ariana Grande and her fellow One Love Manchester performers have soared to the top of the iTunes charts.

Ariana Grande's One Love Manchester benefit concert helped raise almost $13 million (£10 million) for an emergency fund for victims of the attack that killed 22 people at her Manchester Arena concert on May 22.

Proceeds from the show, which will broadcast live across the globe, will go to an emergency fund set up by the city of Manchester and the British Red Cross.

Grande, 23, told the crowd: "She told me Olivia would have wanted to hear the hits".

Between text message and online donations, the show - which featured performances by Grande, Katy Perry, Justin Bieber, The Black Eyed Peas, Coldplay and more - raised $3.49 million, the British Red Cross announced.

Grande performed throughout the show, singing her hits from "Side to Side" to "Break Free".

"I think the kind of love you're displaying is the kind of medicine the world really needs right now. Yes, I know you were shocked by what happened that night but you weren't actually bombed and many of your fans were".

In one scathing tweet Piers wrote: 'I expected better from her.

Speaking after laying flowers on Borough High Street, Ms Campbell said she had felt "sick" when she learned about Saturday's attack.
