Grande to return to stage Sunday for Manchester benefit show

The BBC's Vincent Dowd was in Manchester to watch the latest concert.

From an extremely emotive performance of her hit song "My Everything" sung along with a local school choir, to moving duets with stars like Coldplay and Miley Cyrus, Grande's setlist left many viewers teary eyed.

The concert raised $2.5 million during the show from call-in and online pledges.

Ariana Grande has bravely responded to the scary attack at her concert two weeks ago by returning to Manchester for a benefit concert to raise money for the families affected by the explosion.

A star-studded benefit concert for victims of the Manchester bombing kicked off to tearful fans, heavy police guard and clattering helicopters on Sunday, just a day after another militant attack in London.


One angry fan wrote: 'You criticised her purely to create publicity & revenue for yourself'.

Piers' critical comments came after the Queen was pictured visiting teens at Royal Manchester Children's Hospital after the attack took place. Authorities have said the attack started with a van plowing into pedestrians and then involved three men using large knives to attack people in bars and restaurants at a nearby market. The singer had previously said he who not be able to attend the concert, but in true Gallagher style he shocked with performances of Rock n Roll Star and Live Forever.

As a result Grande's re-release of her One Last Time single is now at the top of the charts, with the original version of the song close behind in fourth place.

"She left 5 minutes early because she was exhausted", Laura said of her daughter, who was dressed in an Ariana Grande t-shirt.

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.
