Usher Reveals Why He Missed Ariana Grande's Manchester Concert

Posted June 07, 2017

Ariana Grande, 23, is doing everything she can to help victims of the very bad terrorist attack that occurred at her Manchester concert on May 22, and now she's making it easy for fans to do so, too.

"The fortitude of your city is extraordinary!" she wrote.

Proceeds from the ticket sales of the concert at Lancashire Cricket Club's Emirates Old Trafford ground, which also featured Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, Coldplay and Liam Gallagher, will also go to the appeal.

"What a night! Thank you Manchester for welcoming us back with open arms", Grande's mother Joan tweeted Monday. The concert continued as planned even after another terrorist attack struck the United Kingdom on Saturday evening, when authorities said three men drove a van into pedestrians on the London Bridge and attacked people with knives at nearby Borough Market.

Scooter Braun, who manages both Grande and Bieber, praised the crowd for their bravery following both attacks. I'm not going to let go of love. "You guys made that decision. And she said, 'This isn't about me - this is what I have to do to make them feel safe and feel better.' She's quite a remarkable young lady". Tell us if you think it's a great idea! The British Red Cross said it raised 10 million pounds, which is about $13 million, for the We Love Manchester Emergency Fund, the Associated Press reports. We love you so much, to the families, we love you so much. "I just want to honor those who were lost, those that were taken from us".

The event saw a huge influx of donations from the United Kingdom alone and with the concert being broadcast globally, this sum is expected to reach double figures; an incredible contribution towards those sadly affected by the attack in Manchester. He performed his latest solo single as well as two songs from his former band, dedicating one, "Live Forever", to the people of Manchester while teaming up with Martin for the duet. Last night's concert showed me I had misjudged Ms Grande.

Earlier in the weekend, Ariana visited victims of the attack at the hospital to show her support.
