“One Love Manchester:” Ariana Grande to play benefit show June 4th and she’s bringing friends
MANCHESTER, England — Publicists say Ariana Grande will play a charity concert in Manchester on Sunday, June 4th — joined by big names including Coldplay, Justin Bieber, Katy Perry and Pharrell Williams.
The “One Love Manchester” show will be held at the city’s Old Trafford cricket ground just under two weeks after a bomber killed 22 people at a Grande concert in Manchester.
Proceeds will go to an emergency fund set up by the city of Manchester and the British Red Cross.
In a statement after the attack, Grande said “we won’t let this divide us. We won’t let hate win . Our response to this violence must be to come closer together, to help each other, to love more, to sing louder and to live more kindly and generously than we did before.”
