The 23 year-old star and her fellow performers will bravely take the stage in honor of the victims of the Manchester bombing attack AND the London Bridge Attack. Ariana’s manager Scooter Braun released a statement and asked everyone to stand together. “After the events last night in London, and those in Manchester just two weeks ago, we feel a sense of responsibility to honor those lost, injured, and affected,” he wrote.
“We plan to honor them with courage, bravery, and defiance in the face of fear,” he continued. “Today’s One Love Manchester benefit concert will not only continue, but will do so with greater purpose. We must not be afraid and in tribute to all those affected here and around the world, we will bring our voices together and sing loudly. I am pleased to say we have the full support of Greater Manchester Police and the Government and are assured the safety of all those attending is the highest priority. All artists involved have been unwavering in their support this morning and are determined to carry on with the show. We ask the strong city of Manchester and the world to join us in making the statement that hatred and fear will never win. Today we stand together. Thank you.”
Praying for London ♡

Worries had erupted that the concert might have been canceled over safety concerns after a man in a white van plowed into a crowd of people on London Bridge on Saturday, June 3. Seven people were tragically killed and 48 more were injured after two more men on foot began slashing people with knives, according to The Daily Mail. Ariana, Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, Coldplay, and the other performers will be performing in Manchester in a benefit concert in honor of the victims of the May 22nd Manchester bombing as well as this latest heartless attack.
