Perhaps the most moving moment came during Grande’s last song, a rendition of ‘Somewhere Over the Rainbow’ in tribute to the 22 who died in a terror attack.
The singer has since released the cover version of the Judy Garland classic to raise more funds for the those affected by the tragic Manchester attack.
Listen below, via Spotify.
Money raised by the track will go towards the British Red Cross’s We Love Manchester Emergency Fund, the same charity money from the concert went to.
While the concert took place, over £2 million was donated to the fund, raising the total money taken to over £10 million.
Artists who played the concert include Coldplay, Liam Gallagher, Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, Black Eyed Peas, and Mac Miller. The event — which sold out within 20 minutes — took place at Manchester’s 50,000 capacity Emirates Old Trafford cricket ground.
All proceeds will go towards helping those affected by the bombing that took place following Grande’s Manchester Arena concert on the 22 May. Twenty-two people were killed and dozens more injured following the terrorist attack.
