LONDON (AP/WFLA) — Pop-singer Ariana Grande will play a charity concert in Manchester on Sunday, joined by big names including Coldplay, Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry and Pharrell Williams.
Grande announced the news on Twitter.
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.
The bomber was identified as 22-year-old Salman Abedi. Since the bombing, authorities in Manchester have arrested 13 people in connection with the attack.
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.”
