Grande in Manchester ahead of benefit concert

The "One Love Manchester" concert will also feature Coldplay, Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry, Pharrell Williams, Take That and the Black Eyed Peas.

Ariana will host the One Love benefit concert at Emirates Old Trafford cricket ground this weekend, to benefit those affected by the tragedy.

Adam Harrison told the BBC his daughter Lily "felt like a rock star" after meeting her idol late on Friday and was "chomping at the bit" to attend the concert. MTV's digital platform is also joining Facebook, Twitter and YouTube in live-streaming the event. The event will take place at a stadium only four miles from the arena where the attack occurred.

Ariana stopped by the Royal Manchester Children's Hospital to spend some time with her young fans who are still recovering from the tragic events.

"It was (a) tough realisation that we thought we may have lost her", he shared.

"So happy she came I could burst".

After the concert, all the money and profits will go toward the "We Love Manchester Emergency Fund", in cooperation with the British Red Cross and Manchester City Council. You are so strong.

"Ariana lit the room up, she was absolutely fantastic", he added. She has a big smile anyway but it got even bigger, Ariana gave her a hug and a kiss, she was in awe.

Her father Peter wrote on Facebook: "This means more to us than all the wonderful things people have done this week".

The 40 (A$69.28) standard tickets sold out in less than 20 minutes, while those who were at the concert on the night of the bombing have been offered free tickets.

Ticketmaster put aside 14,200 tickets for fans who were at Monday's show, May 22, but the company received more than 25,000 applications.
