Pop Stars Slammed for 'Distasteful' Outfits at Manchester Bombing Tribute Concert

During Ariana Grande's One Love Manchester benefit concert filled with numerous biggest names in music, it was a British policeman who captured everyone's heart with a simple act exemplifying the city's resilience in the face of terror.

In symbolic finale, Grande brought everyone on stage for a teary performance of "One Last Time", the last song she performed the night of the attacks in Manchester before people started leaving the arena.

Liam Gallagher of Oasis joined forces with Coldplay to sing 'Live Forever, ' while another star that promoted peace was Justin Bieber.

The concert helped the We Love Manchester Emergency Fund, set up by Manchester City Council and British Red Cross, raise more than £10 million to help those injured or bereaved in the attack.

Grande's manager, Scooter Braun, said in a statement on Sunday that the singer's show would go on with "greater purpose" following Saturday's attack.

And she's clearly very proud of all those who took part, including the choir from Parrs Wood High School, with whom she sang on stage. According to the British Red Cross, the pop star's One Love Manchester benefit concert on Sunday, June 4, raised £2.35 million (more than $3 million) in just three hours. "I encourage you to choose love even when it's hard", said Grande, "Let no one take that away from you".

It was to honor 22 people killed at Grande's Manchester concert in May.

Ariana first announced the benefit concert four days after the May 22 attack.

"We came to show our respect, not just for Manchester (but) also for London", Jason Geal told USA Today, who was attending the show with his wife and daughters.

"I love you so, so much", Grande said at the show, addressing the crowd (via Billboard). "The love that we have here is the medicine that we need right now".

However, Usher wasn't the only artist not to turn up for the One Love Manchester.
