ArianaGrande addressed the cheering crowd of about 50 thousand people in Manchester on Sunday, less than 24 hours after a deadly terrorist attack in the heart of London.
"I want to thank you from my heart for being here today," said the singer between songs. "I want to thank you for what you have together. I love you guys, and I think that kind of love and unity that you show is a type of treatment that really the world needs right now."
Charity concert "One Love Manchester" Grande and other pop stars began, as planned, in the British city, which is still recovering from the attack, which occurred on the Grand 2 weeks ago.
Officials said that the aim of the concert is a fundraiser for the victims of the bombing, which killed 22 people and wounded more than 100 people at the Grand show on may 22. The show started with a minute of silence. Then the crowd danced and sang with stars such as Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, Coldplay, Pharrell Williams and usher.
Katy Perry urged the crowd to "choose love." "It is not easy to always choose love, isn't it?" she asked the crowd. "Especially in times like this, right? This can be a most difficult thing, but love overcomes fear and love conquers hate," she said. "I urge you to choose love even when it's hard. Let no one robs you of it."
This view was supported by his colleague pop star Justin Bieber, who said, "You guys are bold ... Agree that love always wins?"
