Nicki went to Instagram Sunday (June 4) to speak on Grande’s headline-generating event.
Grande and other high-profile musicians united tonight to perform in Manchester to honor the victims of the May 22 suicide attack.
“Tonight is all about love,” a teary-eyed Grande told the crowd of thousands at the “One Love Manchester” concert. The lyrics to her hit love ballads seemed to take on special resonance in the wake of the May 22 attack: “I’m stronger than I’ve been before,” Grande sang in “Break Free” as the audience cheered. Police had said additional security measures would be in place for the show, which comes a day after a terror incident in London and nearly two weeks after violence struck outside Grande’s show at the Manchester Arena.

The concert reportedly brought in thousands of attendees in Manchester.
Ariana Grande performed before a jubilant crowd of some 50,000 in Manchester on Sunday, less than 24 hours after a deadly terror attack in the heart of London. “I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for being here today,” the singer said between songs. “I want to thank you so much for coming together and being so loving and strong and unified. I love you guys so much and I think that the kind of love and unity you’re displaying is the kind of medicine that the world really needs right now.” (CNN)
Ariana’s manager made sure to come forward with a statement on the showcase.
