Big names added to Manchester Benefit Concert

The attack at Grande's concert last week killed 22 people and injured dozens of others, many of them teenagers.

Pop star Ariana, whose concert at the Manchester Arena was the target for a suicide bombing less than two weeks ago, is returning to the city for the One Love Manchester charity event, which will raise funds for the victims and the families affected by the attack. "It was a complete surprise", her mother, Sharon, told the newspaper.

"Obviously the list of stars involved is incredible, and without a doubt it will be a huge TV draw in the United Kingdom but with people like Ariana Grande, Coldplay, Justin Bieber and Katy Perry involved the global appeal is enormous", they added.

"I think she's a little star struck". She has a big smile anyway but it got even bigger, Ariana gave her a hug and a kiss, she was in awe.

The 23-year-old shared jokes with delighted fans at the Royal Manchester Children's Hospital.
