Yesterday was of course the One Love Manchester benefit concert that Ariana put together after the horrible terrorist acts at her concert last week.
I have been covering a lot of it but wanted to space out the posts simply because I couldn’t stop crying. Every performance was incredible and made me very emotional, so that’s enough about me and my emotions.
Watching this concert was beautiful. There was so much unity, so much love in the atmosphere and it was truly beautiful to watch.
Ariana ended the night with “Somewhere Over The Rainbow”, prepare to cry.
The One Love Manchester benefit concert definitely had a lot of beautiful moments, there is no denying that.
This moment between two actual friends, Miley and Ariana is probably one of my favorites on the night. It was so effortless with them singing together, and Miley seemed like she really wanted to comfort Ariana in this moment.
Not to mention that their voices sound absolutely dope together.
When the crowd sang it back? Chills, absolute chills all over.
I am going to do my best to post everything from the One Love Manchester benefit concert because I genuinely think that this concert was important. This concert was to remind everyone that hate never wins. Acts of terror only make us grow stronger as a community.
Today the concert was star studded and of course Ariana Grande was the main event for many people. I know that 10,000 tickets were held for those who had been at the Manchester Arena when the bomb went off, the others were all tickets that were bought.
This is the first video I have been able to watch from the concert and I am sobbing.
It is truly incredible to see Ariana be able to go out there and sing her heart out, see her fans crying, the reaction from the crowd.
From this one video you can tell that there was nothing but good vibes there today.
Ariana Grande has definitely stepped up since the tragic bombing at her concert last week. It really speaks to her character even though some people want to try and say that she is doing this for publicity, those people can kindly go and fuck themselves.
Today Ariana landed in England for the big benefit concert that she put together, and she made a stop to visit those who were injured in the bombing at her concert.
Take a look at some of the photos that have been released. She also FaceTimed with victims that she could not visit face to face.
On the site Hardy wrote a heartfelt note about the hateful acts that occurred.
“What happened last night at the AG concert in Manchester was a tragedy; families and children attacked and murdered; in a place where they should be safe and enjoying a concert. it is an inconceivable atrocity. There is no bringing back those who have been lost, pointlessly, in such a cowardly and brutal fashion. I am truly saddened by what I have witnessed and there is no doubt that Terrorism is an evil thing. ”
The actor continued by saying, “I hope between us we can raise some funds as a gesture of goodwill and love to help in some small way towards repairing some if any of the damage done in the wake of last nights events. There will be much to do and for many the beginning of a new life without those that they love and also a new life damaged irrevocably by the actions of a crime which has no reason, no heartfelt purpose but was simply a cruel cowardly and barbaric, meaningless act of violence. A road to recovery unimaginable.”
So if you can donate, great, if not be sure to spread the word.
No donation is too small in order to help those in need.
Listen, I know that I have been hard on Ariana Grande simply because I am not a huge fan of her music, but I will say that she has always loved her fans. She has always had great mete and greet photos and seemed to really have a deep connection with them.
Last night of course one of the most horrible things in the world happened, a terrorist attack struck her concert and left at least 22 dead. The number could potentially rise due to casualties.
It was truly a disgusting act that I don’t think any of us will ever be able to understand.
Earlier today Ariana took to Twitter for the first time since the attacks.
broken. from the bottom of my heart, i am so so sorry. i don't have words.
