Despite Saturday’s terrorist attack in London, Ariana Grande’s “One Love Manchester” concert went on as planned. Over 60,000 fans filled the Old Trafford Arena in Manchester for the emotional show full of big stars.
The Red Cross reported more than $3-million was raised during the concert alone, which brings their emergency fund to almost $12 million raised in just over a week.
Ariana, who wore a “One Love Manchester” sweatshirt for the entire performance, was on stage throughout the concert that was televised on many TV stations and also streamed live online.
Other highlights of the concert included Pharrell Williams performing “Get Lucky” and “Happy,” Niall Horan singing “This Town,” Katy Perry singing “Part of Me” and “Roar,” Justin Bieber performing “Love Yourself” and “Cold Water,” and Coldplay singing “Something Just Like This.”
In addition to the on stage entertainment, there were also several video messages on the large screen from U2, Stevie Wonder, Demi Lovato, Camila Cabello and Paul McCartney.
