Ariana Grande Arriving Back in the UK For Benefit Concert
Ariana Grande Visits Fans at Manchester Hospital Ahead of Benefit Concert
Ariana Grande touched down at Stansted Airport in the UK on Friday morning following a heartbreaking week. After a terror attack left 22 dead and more than 100 injured at her concert in Manchester on May 22, the singer quickly flew back home to Florida, where she had an emotional reunion with boyfriend Mac Miller. But after speaking out about the tragedy and urging fans to never let hate win, Ariana promised to return to the "incredibly brave city of Manchester" to perform a benefit concert to raise money for the victims. The show, titled One Love Manchester, will take place on Sunday and feature performances by stars including Miley Cyrus, Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, Usher, Pharrell Williams, and Niall Horan.

Following her arrival, Ariana stopped by the Royal Manchester Children's Hospital to visit a handful of fans who were injured in the terror attack at her concert. The 23-year-old singer posted a sweet black and white photo of herself chatting with a fan named Jaden Farrell-Mann on Instagram with a yellow heart emoji. Ariana also met with a little girl named Evie Mills, who was left "buzzing" after Ariana's surprise visit. "It was so good. She just kept hugging us," she told the Press Association.
Many of the celebrities who are involved in the One Love Manchester concert also offered their support for Ariana and the victims' families on social media shortly after the attack. In addition to Ariana's powerful message, her manager, Scooter Braun, had an emotional response to how he plans to deal with the aftermath.
