Global Terror Attacks: We Stand Together

Proceeds from the One Love Manchester concert will benefit the "We Love Manchester Emergency Fund", set up in honor of the victims and families affected.

Grande, wearing a baggy "One Love Manchester" sweat shirt and a pair of sweat trousers, invited students from Manchester's Parrs Wood High School to perform with her on stage.

Garry Shewan, Assistant Chief Constable of Greater Manchester Police, stated they were increasing security measures in the light of the London attacks.

Robbie Williams also performed, changing some of his lyrics of "Strong" to honor the Manchester victims.

Williams was visibly emotional as he struggled to string the touching lyrics together, blowing a kiss to the sky for the 22 people killed at Grande's concert almost two weeks ago.

Some attendees have admitted to feeling nervous following Saturday night's terror attack in central London.

"Today's One Love Manchester benefit concert will not only continue, but will do so with greater goal", Braun stated.

Before introducing Grande's performance, Braun continued: "Evil will test us".

Grande performed with big names including Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, Take That, Robbie Williams and Coldplay at the charity event that was attended by numerous victims of the May 22 bombing.




Other performers Sunday include Pharrell Williams, Take That and Marcus Mumford. In times like these, we have to show love and kindness for those in need, and the Manchester One Love is a comfort to us all.

Marcus Mumford of British-American band Mumford and Sons started the show with a minute silence, before performing the group's lovely song Timshel, setting the bar for what is sure to be a musical message of unity and love.

The concert begins at 2 p.m. ET and will be live-streamed on MTV's website, Ariana Grande's Facebook Page, YouTube, and Twitter.

"We love you so much", she said as pink streamers rained from the sky at the conclusion of "Break Free".

Ariana Grande has paid tribute to the victims who died at her Manchester concert with an all-star affair in the city with the help of Katy Perry, Justin Bieber, Liam Gallagher and others.

More than 50,000 crowded into Emirates Old Trafford Cricket Ground to watch Grande headline the benefit.

The May 22 terror attack on Manchester Arena claimed 22 lives, including seven children, and injured dozens more. We ask the strong city of Manchester and the world to join us in making the statement that hatred and fear will never win.

But organisers said the event would go ahead "loudly" and with "greater purpose" after a van struck pedestrians on London Bridge, with three attackers then stabbing people indiscriminately.

"We can't let them stop us".
