Ariana Grande defiantly returned to the stage in Manchester on Sunday, two weeks after a suicide bomber killed 22 people at one of her concerts there — and as Britain mourned more dead from another weekend terror attack.
The 23-year-old songstress openly wept along with her fans as she closed the night with a wrenching rendition of “Over the Rainbow.”
“I love you guys so much, and I think the kind of love you’re displaying is the medicine the world needs right now,” she told the 50,000-strong crowd at Manchester’s Old Trafford Cricket Ground.
The British Red Cross said the One Love Manchester benefit raised more than £10 million ($13 million) for the We Love Manchester Emergency Fund, created for those affected by the attack.
