The concert that touched millions of Mancunians' and many more worldwide, and we can't stop talking about it. An estimated 50,000 fans joined at Manchester Old Trafford Cricket Ground to unite with a line-up of a-lister stars, in honour of all of the victims of the Manchester Arena attack on 22nd May. Ariana Grande at just 23 years old, captured the boundless spirit of the city through music and heart-rending words, moving thousands of people.
The line-up aired live on BBC One, involving some of the greatest artists including Take That, Coldplay, Justin Bieber, Black Eyed Peas and many more...not forgetting the surprise appearance from fellow Mancunian Liam Gallagher. Emotions ran high on Sunday evening as the public honoured the victims of the attack right in the heart of Manchester, creating a night that will never be forgotten. Under the grief-stricken circumstances Ariana and friends undoubtedly produced a night that was nothing but a heart-warming salvation, that has created ultimate togetherness!
All the proceedings will benefit the victims and the families affected by the attack and the British Red Cross reported that it received more than £10 million in donations following the benefit concert. Music has proved to be a healer and an outlet for desolation, whilst generating a glimpse of hope for our City Manchester and for the rest of the world.
"I want to thank you so much for coming together, and for being so loving and strong, and unified. I love you guys so much. The kind of love you're displaying is the medicine the world needs right now" - Ariana Grande
