Ariana Grande may become the first honorary citizen of Manchester after her contributions towards the victims of the Manchester attack.
From her One Love Benefit Concert in early June, Grande raised almost $13 million for the victims and their families following the deadly attack that happened at one of her concerts two weeks prior.
“This seems a fitting moment to update the way we recognize those who make noteworthy contributions to the life and success of our city,” said the leader of the Manchester city council, Sir Richard Leese.
Grande made a huge impact towards those who were affected. Before her benefit concert, which featured guests like Justin Bieber and Katy Perry, she visited victims in hospital.
She also wrote heartfelt messages on social media.
“Music is something that everyone on Earth can share. Music is meant to heal us, to bring us together, to make us happy. So that is what it will continue to do for us,” she wrote on Twitter.
Honorary citizenship is the highest civilian honor that a city can offer any non-citizen.
The proposal is being put towards the council on July 12, where they will decide if Grande is worthy or not.
What a well deserved honor!
