Ariana Grande in Heartfelt Statement: I’ll Return to Manchester for Benefit Concert

Ariana Grande on Friday released a heartbreaking statement following Monday’s bombing after her Manchester concert that left 22 dead.

“My heart, prayers and deepest condolences are with the victims of the Manchester attack and their loved ones,” Grande wrote.

“Our response to this violence must be to come closer together, to help each other, to love more, to sing louder and to live more kindly and generously than we did before.”

The pop singer, who canceled her Dangerous Woman tour after the attack, said she would be returning to Manchester to spend time with her fans and hold a benefit concert for the victims.

Details about the benefit will be released shortly, she wrote.
