Ariana Grande has returned to the stage for the first time since the May 22 terror attack outside her Manchester Arena gig, performing a string of hits at the One Love Manchester benefit concert.

During the gig, marked by appearances from artists including Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, and Pharrell, Grande took a moment to say “I think that the kind of love and unity that we are displaying is the medicine the world really needs right now.”

 

Miley Cyrus was then accompanied by Grande for a duet of Crowded House’s Don’t Dream It’s Over.

 

Coldplay dedicated Don’t Look Back In Anger by hometown heroes Oasis to the singer, 

 

A visibly emotional Grande was flanked by the event’s performers as she belted out One Last Time, and closed the gig out with a seriously heartfelt Over The Rainbow.

 

Proceeds of the performance are expected to reach over £2M, which will be passed along to those affected by the deadly blast.
