Ariana Grande Plans to Return to Manchester for Benefit Concert
Posted on May 26, 2017
It has been just a few days since the horrific suicide bombing at the Manchester Area in Manchester, England. The bombing happened just after the end of Ariana Grande's concert. The bombing killed at least 22 people and injured dozens more. Some of Ariana's young fans are among the dead and injured.
Ariana tweeted she was "broken" shortly after the attack. She then returned to the U.S. Taylor Swift is rumored to have loaned her the use of her jet to get back quickly. Ariana has now issued a new heartfelt statement and is uniting with her fans and the world to stand up against terrorism. She announced in a long tweet that she will be returning to Manchester for a benefit concert.
Ariana says, "The only thing we can do now is choose how we let this affect us and how we live our lives from here on out. I've been thinking of my fans, and all of you, non stop over the past week. The way you have handled all of this has been more inspiring and made me more product than you'll ever know."
She says in the tweets that her fans are the "opposite" of the evil terrorists. She says we should not recoil from this or operate in fear. She says, "We won't let hate win."
She also announced, "I'll be returning to the brave city of Manchester to spend time with my fans and to hav ea benefit concert in honor of and to raise money for the victims and their families. I want to thank my fellow musicians and friends for reaching out to be a part of our expression of love for Manchester. I will have details to share with you as soon as everything is confirmed."
She also said, "We will continue in honor of the ones we lost, their loved ones, my fans and all affected by this tragedy. They will be on my mind and in my heart everyday and I will think of them with everything I do for the rest of my life."
Good for Ariana for being so brave and helping and encouraging her fans. We hope she gets all the help she needs to organize the benefit concert.
