Britain suffered another terrorist attack this weekend . . . but ARIANA GRANDE still went ahead with her “One Love Manchester” benefit yesterday, and it was a huge success. Here are five highlights:
1. Ariana performed “Don’t Dream It’s Over“ with Miley Cyrus, and then told the crowd, quote, “I want to thank you so much for coming together, and being so lovely . . . I think that the kind of love, the unity that you’re displaying is the medicine that the world really needs right now. So, I want to thank you for being just that.”
2. Justin Bieber performed his song “Cold Water“ . . . and afterward he said, quote, “Fight evil with good, fight evil with love . . . don’t fight evil with more evil.” He even started crying while talking to the crowd.
4. Marcus Mumford started the show by performing “Timshel“.
5. Ariana closed it out by singing “Somewhere Over the Rainbow“.
The British Red Cross confirmed that over $12 million has been raised for the ‘We Love Manchester Emergency Fund’ so far, with $3 million coming during the three-hour benefit through text and online donations.
