One Love Manchester Benefit Raises $3 Million, Draws Massive Audience

06 Juin, 2017, 10:49 | Author: Marie-Claire Cellier

Grande had returned to the USA to be with her family and flew back to England last week, where she did visit injured fans at the hospital ahead of the One Love Manchester concert, which she co-organized. The tribute concert, which featured many artists, sold out in less than 30 minutes. It also averaged 10.9 million viewers during the show. The YouTube live stream had more than five million views in just a few hours.

The 23-year-old Grande visited injured fans in the hospital last week before Sunday's One Love Manchester concert.

Olivia Campbell-Hardy, 15, died in the bombing at the Ariana Grande concert on May 22.

A suicide bomber set off a blast outside of Manchester Arena, where Grande was performing on May 22. United Kingdom viewers, as well as people from around the world, could also view the show on Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter. Numerous artists confirmed they would be at the concert shortly after it was announced by Ariana Grande. Suspending her European tour, she vowed to return to Manchester for a benefit concert to help victims and their families.
