Ariana Grande rocks ‘One Love Manchester’ benefit concert

Ariana Grande defiantly returned to the stage at her star-studded ‘One Love Manchester’ concert Sunday, two weeks after a suicide bomber killed 22 people after her performance in the British city and less than a day after a trio of terrorists slaughtered at least seven in London.
“Manchester make some noise!” the teary-eyed 23-year-old songstress yelled to the tens of thousands of fans from across the globe who descended on Manchester’s Old Trafford Cricket Ground for the benefit concert, before launching into her hit “Break Free.”

Mumford & Sons‘ Marcus Mumford kicked off the show with a minute of silence for the victims of both attacks. The lineup also includes superstars Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, Pharrell Williams, and Coldplay.

“I don’t see or hear or smell any fear in this building,” said Williams, who performed his hit “Happy” with Miley Cyrus.

“I love Manchester. It’s always felt like a home away from home for me,” Cyrus added, praising Grande as a role model for young women. The show is raising money for the victims and their families suffering after Salman Abedi detonated a bomb outside Grande’s May 22 show. Organizers expect to raise at least $2.5 million.

Fans who were at Grande’s Manchester Arena show last week were offered free tickets to the event, but some 10,000 heartless scammers who weren’t there still tried to claim one, according to Ticketmaster.
