One Love Manchester Benefit Concert Raises Millions
June 5, 2017

Ariana Grande's One Love Manchester concert on Sunday was a massive success, raising millions of dollars to support the families of those injured and killed in last month's attack after the Pop star's concert. Adding to the emotion of the benefit concert was the attack in London that took place the night before, killing seven individuals and injuring 48.

Approximately 50,000 people were in attendance at One Love Manchester, which featured a massive lineup of performers alongside Grande. They included Justin Bieber, Coldplay, Katy Perry, Marcus Mumford (a late addition), Robbie Williams, Pharrell, Miley Cyrus, Niall Horan and the Black Eyed Peas. Grande appeared throughout the three hour concert, performing duets with many of the artists, including a cover of Crowded House's "Don't Dream It's Over" with Cyrus.

Chris Martin and Grande teamed up for a cover of Oasis' "Don't Look Back in Anger," which has become an anthem of sorts for Manchester since the attack. During Coldplay's set, they were joined by surprise guest Liam Gallagher, who teamed up with the band for more Oasis covers - "Rock 'n' Roll Star" and "Live Forever," along with his new solo single "Wall of Glass."

Grande ended the night with all the musicians returning to the stage for a performance of her single "One Last Time," followed by "Somewhere Over the Rainbow." "One Last Time" is being re-issued as a charity single, with all proceeds going to the We Love Manchester Emergency Fund.

The emotionally charged concert was broadcast around the globe and the British Red Cross announced that it had raised approximately $2.6 million during the event. The We Love Manchester Emergency Fund had already reached roughly $9 million prior to the concert and expected to earn more from ticket sales, merchandise and broadcast rights. On Friday, Grande's label Universal Music Group announced it was donating $500,000 to the fund.
