One Love Manchester

On Sunday June 4th, Manchester stood united for the One Love Manchester tribute concert in aid of the victims of the Manchester Arena bombing. Held at the Emirates Old Trafford Cricket ground, Ariana was joined by a host of stars to pay tribute to the 22 victims who tragically lost their lives.

With nearly 15 million tuning into the memorable event, the line up included performances from Marcus Mumford, Take That, Robbie Williams, Little Mix, Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, Imogen Heap, The lack Eyed Peas, Victoria Monet, Miley Cyrus and Coldplay, the latter of which performed a special rendition of the Oasis classic, ‘Don’t Look Back In Anger’. Event organiser Ariana promised fans a surprise, and that came in the form of former Oasis frontman, Liam Gallagher. Liam honoured his hometown with a surprise performance of ‘Rock N Roll Star’ followed my his debut single ‘Wall Of Glass’. Ariana closed the show performing ‘One Last Time’, followed by a poignant cover of the official charity single, ‘Somewhere Over The Rainbow’.  While ‘One Last Time’ has seen a resurgence in the charts, proceeds from both singles will go to the British Red Cross’ We Love Manchester Fund.

To donate £5 to the We Love Manchester fund, text LOVE to 70507. Texts cost £5 plus your standard network rate. So far, more than £10 million has been raised, with more than £2 million alone raised through text donations during the concert.
