They say it’s usually the most tragic moments and times in our lives when people from all walks of life come together and unite as one. Nearly two weeks after the tragic terrorist Manchester bomb massacre that occurred at Arianna Grande’s concert in Manchester, England, the pop singer decided to do a redo and host an all-star benefit concert honoring the victims and raise money for their families.
The “One Love Manchester” concert was held on Sunday night at the Lancashire Cricket Club’s Old Trafford Ground in Manchester where over 50,000 concertgoers were in attendance. There was also an incredible lineup of musicians who performed and showed love, including Justin Bieber, Usher, Pharell, The Black Eyed Peas, Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, Coldplay and more.
“Love Yourself” singer Justin Bieber said a moving prayer over the crowd for protection, while singer Katy Perry encouraged concertgoers to make “Human Contact” with one another promoting love.
Miley Cyrus and Grande sang a sweet duet of the classic 80’s inspirational song, “Don’t Dream it’s Over.”
The two hour concert ended on an emotional note when Grande closed out singing a beautiful rendition of “Over the Rainbow,” symbolizing hope for tomorrow after this tragedy.
