Ariana Grande posted a powerful and uplifting letter on social media and stated that she will return to Manchester following the terror attack during her recent show there. The singer said that she will be having a benefit concert to honor the victims of the Manchester bombing and to raise money for them as well.
In the lengthy letter, Ari said “I am sorry for the pain and fear that you must be feeling and for the trauma that you, too, must be experiencing. We will never be able to understand why events like this take place because it is not in our nature, which is why we shouldn’t recoil. We will not quit or operate in fear. We won’t let this divide us. We won’t let hate win.”
Also, the 23-year old singer earnestly expressed how eager she is to uplift the people the same way they uplift her.
“I don’t want to go the rest of the year without being able to see and hold and uplift my fans, the same way they continue to uplift me. 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.”, she added.
"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," she wrote. "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."
After posting the letter, Ariana also shared a link to a local fundraiser.
Details about when will Ariana return and do her benefit concert for Manchester are not yet announced.
