Ariana has arrived in the UK

The One Last Time singer arranged the One Love Manchester concert in order to raise money for the victims of the Manchester terror attack and their families. The attack took place following Ariana's concert on 22 May, when a suicide bomber detonated a bomb in the foyer of Manchester Arena, killing 22 people and injuring another 59. In a statement about the horrific incident, Ariana wrote: "I don't want to go the rest of the year without being able to see and hold and uplift my fans, the same way they continue to uplift me… I'll be returning to the incredibly brave city of Manchester to spend time with my fans and to have a benefit concert in honour of and to raise money for the victims and their families."
