NEW YORK– Ariana Grande is scheduled to return to the stage Sunday in Manchester, England, for a show to raise money for victims of a suicide battle that struck at the end of her last show nearly two weeks back.
She will not be alone.
A star-studded lineup consisting of Justin Bieber, Coldplay, Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, Marcus Mumford and Take That is arranged to carry out at the “One Love Manchester” performance at the city’s Old Trafford cricket ground. The program will be relayed around the world and profits will go to an emergency situation fund set up by the city of Manchester and the British Red Cross.
The May 22 attack at Grande’s Manchester performance killed 22 and wounded dozens more. The pop vocalist visited young fans injured in the attack at the Royal Manchester Kid’s Medical facility on Friday.
Sunday’s show comes one day after attackers targeted the heart of London, eliminating 7 individuals. Authorities have said the attack started with a van plowing into pedestrians and after that included three men using large knives to assault individuals in bars and dining establishments at a neighboring market.
“We will not stop or run in worry. We will not let this divide us. We will not let dislike win,” Grande wrote in a statement when she revealed the benefit show last week. “Our reaction to this violence need to be to come closer together, to assist each other, to like more, to sing louder and to live more kindly and generously than we did previously.”
Other entertainers will consist of Pharrell Williams, Usher, the Black Eyed Peas, Robbie Williams and Niall Horan.
The show will be broadcast on a variety of outlets.
Disney’s young person cable network Freeform will air the full performance live at 2 p.m. EDT on Sunday. ABC plans a one-hour emphasize unique following its NBA Finals telecast.
The concert also will be broadcast on more than 130 iHeartRadio stations, and MTV will livestream the occasion on the site www.onelovemanchester.mtv.com.
