Ariana Grande, 23, is doing everything she can to help victims of the terrible terrorist attack that occurred at her Manchester concert on May 22, and now she's making it easy for fans to do so, too. A reporter for The Guardian noticed her hugging fans and telling them, "Do not be afraid".
Concertgoers and those watching the live stream at home were encouraged to donate to the We Love Manchester Emergency Fund set up by the Red Cross and Manchester City Council to support the bombing victims and their families. "I encourage you to choose love even when it's hard", said Grande, "Let no one take that away from you".
Grande's mother, Joan, told Variety her daughter's connection to the song goes deeper than just Manchester.
In less than two weeks after the May 22 horror, she pulled together Sunday's benefit at the city's Old Trafford Cricket Ground. Concert organizers moved quickly to stage the show following the May 22 attack to help victims and to stand up against violence.
Grande also returned to Manchester to visit victims at the hospital.
Clearly, watching his career crash and burn isn't something Morgan wants to do right now, though, because he has changed his tune when it comes to Grande. By re-releasing one of her biggest hits, the songstress is making it clear that she has nothing but love for everyone involved.
"Tonight has been filled with love and fun and bright energy, so thank you for that". Make human contact. Tell them, 'I love you.' Look in their eyes.
Bieber roused the 50,000 people to raise their hands and say, "we honour you, we love you".
He dedicated the song "to the attractive people who were killed and injured in the Manchester terror attack". We need to love each other.
