Ariana Grande’s emotional One Love Manchester concert

US pop singer Ariana Grande’s One Love Manchester tribute concert was an emotional affair.

The 23-year-old was back in Manchester a fortnight since the bombing that killed 22 and injured dozens. The return concert was for both the audience and performers.

Ariana Grande performed “with greater purpose” at the concert, her manager said. Her show was for the victims of the Manchester Arena bombing and London Bridge attacks.

With a star-studded line-up, many watched her from home. Reportedly, the concert averaged 10.9 million viewers on BBC One alone, peaking at just under 15 million.

The concert was also streamed over various commercial radio stations and broadcast in over 50 countries around the world. Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube also hosted various steams.

Total funds raised reach £10m

While the concert took place, over £2 million was donated to the British Red Cross’s ‘We Love Manchester Emergency Fund’, taking the total raised to over £10 million.

Artists who played the concert include Coldplay, Liam Gallagher, Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, Black Eyed Peas, and Mac Miller. The event — which sold out within 20 minutes — took place at Manchester’s 50,000 capacity Emirates Old Trafford cricket ground.
