Pop singer Ariana Grande announced on Friday that she would go back to Manchester to put on a benefit concert to raise money for the victims of the bombing that took place after her concert on Monday.
Grande took to Twitter, posting a statement on her official account in which he said that she would visit Manchester again as soon she manages to set a date, moreover, she expressed that she and her fans will always show love and support for each other.
“I have been thinking of my fans, and of you all, non-stop over the past week,” Grande wrote. “The way you have handled all of this has been more inspiring and made me more proud than you’ll ever know.”
She was glad that love and support she and her fans showed is the total opposite “heinous intentions” of those behind the attack.
The singer intended that “Dangerous Woman” tour would be a “safe space” for her fans, where they could gather and share love for music.
“This will not change that. When you look into the audience at my shows, you see a beautiful, diverse, pure, happy crowd. Thousands of people, incredibly different, all there for the same reason, music.”
She made a plea to her fans to meet the violence with love and kindness.
“I don’t want to go the rest of the year without being able to see and hold and uplift my fans, the same way they continue to uplift me,” Grande wrote. “Our response to this violence must be to come closer together, to help each other, to love more, to sing louder and live more kindly and generously than we did before.”
Moreover, she announced that there were stars who would like to contribute and perform in the benefit concert but she did not say who.
Grande’s management stated on Wednesday that the concerts of her tour will be suspended until Grande and her fans pull themselves together and “to pay [their] proper respects to those lost.”
Grande continued that she will always remember those who were killed in the and those who affected by the wicked blast
“They will be on my mind and in my heart every day and I will think of them with everything I do for the rest of my life,” she wrote.
