Following the horrific attack at her Manchester concert that left 22 people dead, Ariana Grande announced she’s returning to the English city to stage a benefit concert to raise money for victims and their families. Taking to Twitter, the pop star released a letter expressing her grief and sadness for all those affected.
“There is nothing I or anyone can do to take away the pain you are feeling or to make this better,” she wrote. “However, I extend my hand and heart and everything I possibly can give to you and yours, should you want or need my help in any way.”
Ariana also praised her fans for rallying behind one another with such support, urging them to stay united in the face of terrorism. “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,” she wrote.
The singer, who suspended her Dangerous Woman tour through the first week of June, has yet to share more details regarding the benefit concert’s date and venue. Read her full statement here:
