MANCHESTER, ENGLAND (CBSNewYork/CBSNews) — Concertgoers filled a sold-out stadium in Manchester, England for Ariana Grande’s “One Love Manchester” benefit Sunday, just 13 days after a terror attack outside her performance killed 22 people.
The pop star was joined on stage by Katy Perry, Justin Bieber, Coldplay and more.
The money raised will go toward assisting the families and surviving victims of the May 22 suicide bombing.
“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,” Grande said on Twitter, announcing the show. “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.”
Some 50,000 fans packed the stands, including 14,000 who attended the previous performance.
In part, Braun also alluded to last night’s terror attack in London, and said:
“Myself and all of us around the world are so grateful to you for stepping up and taking action … Last night, this nation was challenged, and you had a decision to make whether to come out here tonight. And this is so beautiful. You looked fear in the face and said, ‘No. This is Manchester…’ Manchester, your bravery is our hope.”
He continued, before introducing Ariana’s performance, by saying:
“Evil will test us. It will show its face again. But because of you, as a worldwide community, we will be fearless, will will be great and we will honor our children. We owe it to them to be brave… Hatred will never win, fear will never divide us, because on this day we all stood with Manchester.”
Powerful, powerful stuff.
