Ariana Grande’s benefit concert ‘One Love’ in Manchester on Sunday night was a major hit, raising over £10 million for the families and victims of the suicide bombing that occured almost three weeks ago.
Grande brought many fellow musicians with her for the concert such as Katy Perry, Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus and Coldplay.
The band Mumford & Sons opened the show with a moment of silence for those who lost their lives during the terrorist attack before singing a solo piece. The crowd, who were emotional and attentive, became united instantly.
Grande joined Miley Cyrus and the Black Eyed Peas on stage during their performances singing hits like ‘Where is the Love?’. Cyrus and Pharrell Williams performed their hit ‘Happy’ for the crowd.
With performances from Robbie Williams and televised appearances from Bono and U2, some of the artists changed the lyrics of their songs to create an uplifting atmosphere.
Grande sang two of her hit songs ‘Be Alright’ and ‘Break Free’ wearing an over-sized shirt reading One Love Manchester.
She was joined by a high-school choir, The Parrs Wood High School choir for an emotional performance of ‘My Everything’.
Chris Martin sang ‘Don’t Look Back in Anger’ and Justin Bieber sang an acoustic version of ‘Cold Water’.
The highlight of the show occured at the end, when all the stars joined Grande on stage for a rendition of ‘One Last Time’.
The concert raised almost £10 million which is $13 million.
