Ariana Grande has just made a massive announcement that will directly impact the victims and families of the terror attack at her recent show.
Grande issued a statement that since the bombing at her concert at Manchester Arena she has been thinking of her fans "nonstop" and plans to return to the city to spend time with "Arianators" there, according to reports. She will also be performing a benefit concert. The money will go to the victims of the attack.
"From the day we started putting the Dangerous Woman tour together, I said that this show, more than anything else, was intended to be a safe space for my fans. A place for them to escape, to celebrate, to heal, to feel safe, and to be themselves," she wrote.
"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. Music is something that everyone on Earth can share. Music is meant to heal us, to bring us together, to make us happy. So that is what it will continue to do for us," she said.
Grande has been in Florida with her family since the attack occurred. She also announced that she'd suspended her tour until early next month.
"The way you have handled all of this has been more inspiring and made me more proud than you'll ever know," she wrote. "The compassion, kindness, love, strength and oneness that you've shown one another this past week is the exact opposite of the heinous intentions it must take to pull off something as evil as what happened Monday. YOU are the opposite," Ariana wrote to her fans.
At this time, we do not have any word on the exact dates for the benefit concert in Manchester. Please join us in continuing to pray for the victims and their families during this heart-wrenching time.
