Fans turned out on Wednesday evening (June 7) for the resumption of U.S. singer Ariana Grande's world tour in Paris, more than two weeks after it was interrupted by the Manchester suicide bomb attack.
Ariana Grande headlined a star-studded bill at the Old Trafford cricket ground in memory of the victims of the bomb attack following her concert in the city last month (May 17), with performers including Coldplay, Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus and Katy Perry.
Ariana was joined on stage by 26 students from the Parrs Wood High School choir to sing an emotional rendition of Grande's song My Everything and was visibly moved to tears while performing.
While reportedly Ariana told a pal backstage after the gig: "That was the hardest thing ever, I just need to go home now".
Piers Morgan has added to his Twitter apology to Ariana Grande with a column in the Daily Mail.
Grande returned to England earlier this week and met with victims in the hospital.
"First show back tonight".
But within days Grande and her team began organising the benefit, which overcame considerable logistical and security obstacles to take place less than two weeks later.
According to a tweet from the British Red Cross, money raised via text and online donations during the concert climbed over £2.35 million - and that's not even taking ticket sales into account.
"Because far from being a cliched child star, Grande has shown herself to be a ideal role model for our daughters after all", Lambert wrote.
