A benefit concert was miraculously put together on June 4th to help raise money for Manchester after the recent bombings that occurred at Ariana Grande’s concert. With the help of Miley Cyrus, Justin Bieber, The Black Eyed Peas, Coldplay, and many other amazing artists, she raised $13 million. The whole stadium was filled with joy, love and tears. Everyone was dancing and singing along, even the security officers. Despite being judged for licking a doughnut or two, everyone loved Ariana during the concert, as she had so much love to give back. She was able to reach all over the world, as she encouraged everyone to choose love, even at the hardest of times.

The concert started with a moment of silence to honor the twenty-two victims killed, and over 100 injured from the suicide bombing that had happened two weeks earlier. Ariana was absolutely heart broken, but was determined to do everything she could to help. Despite the concert being put together in very little time, tickets were sold out in a matter of minutes. Ariana visited all the injured fans and the families of those who didn’t survive the attack. She even reserved free tickets to her benefit concert to everyone who was at her original concert in Manchester.

Although people were ecstatic to go, many were wary because of the terrorist attack that had taken place in London less then twenty-four hours before. The UK government warned everyone over Twitter that there was likely to be another attack, but fans attended the benefit concert anyway. Security presence at the concert was heavy, as was the police presence, to ensure that those who attended the concert would be safe.

Despite everyone in Europe walking on eggshells, it was great to show in which the love spread was too big for anyone to destroy. All the artists at the benefit concert were sending love and preaching words of love and encouragement to the crowd, as well as the world. The whole concert was live streamed on Twitter, YouTube, Snapchat, Instagram, Billboard.com, and many other websites and social media. Ariana stretched the love and support all over the world, and managed to bring smiles to everyone’s faces through this inspirational event.
