We Love Manchester Emergency Fund passes £10 million mark

But one performer, Katy Perry, paid tribute in another creative way- by wearing an outfit covered in photos of the victims.

On Monday, Usher posted an Instagram message that professed his support for Manchester and explained the reason for his absence at the Ariana Grande-organized charity concert: he stayed in Atlanta to take his son, Usher V (aka "Cinco") to his first day at Camp Kudzu, which is dedicated to helping kids with type 1 diabetes.

The One Love Manchester concert held Sunday night to benefit the victims of last month's attack at the Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, England, is being hailed as a triumph.

Perry's white, long-sleeved Sonia Rykiel dress had the photos adorning the collar and wrists, as well as in the shape of a heart across her back.

The subtle move at the show, which was put on by Grande's team and raised more than $9 million for the families of those involved in the attack, left fans in tears. Such a small, yet touching, tribute. "Her courage and bravery is just fantastic". All week you have been incredible and as a friend, I'm so proud of you my love.

"It's very bad, and whatever you can do to help, you should", she added. I'm going to sing this next song for them.

"We felt sick that they could do it again so soon, we felt anxious for the people here and we just felt that we needed to be here and show our support". Ever. Can we have a moment of silence before we start? Less than two weeks ago, a terrorist bombing took place outside of the nearby Manchester Arena, precisely timed to the ending of a concert by Grande that evening, killing 22 and wounding dozens.
