Ariana Grande said, in an open letter posted on her social media accounts:
“My heart, prayers and condolences are with the victims of the Manchester Attack and their loved ones. There is nothing I or anyone can do to take away the pain you are feeling or to make this better. However, I extend my hand and heart and everything I possibly can give to you and yours, should you want or need my help in any way.”
She continued: “We will not quit or operate in fear. We won’t let this divide us. We won’t let hate win… Our response to this violence must be to come closer together, to help each other, to love more, to sing louder and to live more kindly and generously than we did before.”
“Music is meant to heal us, to bring us together, to make us happy. So that is what it will continue to do for us. We will continue to honour the ones we lost, their loved ones, my fans and all affected by this tragedy. They will be on my mind and in my heart everyday and I will think of them with everything I do for the rest of my life.”
The attack – which took place after Ariana’s Dangerous Woman concert at Manchester Arena on Monday 22 May – killed 22 people, seven of whom were children, and injured hundreds of others.
On May 27th, Ariana Grande finally released a statement following the Manchester tragedy that took place on May 22nd.

Ariana Grande has been announced to perform at a special concert alongside other prominent artists on December 6th at 9 PM EST.
Next month, just a few days shy of what would have been legendary crooner Frank Sinatra’s 100th birthday, the likes of Ariana Grande and Lady Gaga will gather to pay tribute at Sinatra 100: an All-Star Grammy Concert, according to PEOPLE. Carrie Underwood, Adam Levine, Celine Dion, John Legend and Alicia Keys are also slated to appear.
“I’ve been singing Frank Sinatra songs in my shows for many years,” Dion told the site. “His voice has been such an inspiration for me, and it will always be.”
“Nobody could juggle a drink, a conversation, and a perfect vocal as casually as Frank,” Levine added. “That’s why I love him.”
Sinatra, who was born in 1915, sold 150 million albums and won nine Grammys before his death in 1998, and was considered a pioneer of jazz and pop standards. “Let’s Fall in Love,” “The Way You Look Tonight” and “They Can’t Take That Away From Me” are some of his most memorable hits.
The concert will be taped on December 2nd at the Wynn Las Vegas’ Encore Theatre and air December 6th at 9 PM EST on CBS.
Last time Ariana performed at a GRAMMY concert, it was a tribute payed to the amazing Stevie Wonder.
THIS EVENT WAS CANCELLED DUE TO HER ORAL SURGERY!
On June 15th, it was announce that Ariana Grande will headline a free concert at 8 p.m. Saturday, July 11 at Paul Brown Stadium as part of the MLB All-Star half-time Game festivities, a show organized by Major League Baseball officials announced Monday.

The pint-sized star with the big voice, known for hit songs such as “Problem,””Love Me Harder” and “Almost Is Never Enough,” also headlined this year’s NBA All-Star Game halftime show in February.
Grande will join many other celebrities headed to Cincinnati as part of the All-Star Game festivities. Last month, officials announced that rappers Snoop Dogg and Macklemore, “Hunger Games” star (and Union, Kentucky native) Josh Hutcherson, actor Anthony Anderson and more notable names will play in the celebrity softball game.
The 2015 MLB All-Star Half-Time Show will be held on July 11 at Paul Brown Stadium in Cincinnati.
With the year-end festivities approaching, there is new information about the Jingle festivals organized by the North American radio stations. Highlighted throughout the year, Ariana Grande has been one of the most sought for events. The first radio to confirm their performers was B96, with the singer among the scheduled performers.
The Jingle Ball this year will be held on December 6th at the Allstate Arena in Rosemont – Illinois . Besides Ariana, singers as Pharrell Williams, Martin Garrix, Lil Jon and bands like 5 Seconds Of Summer, and Rixton will also perform.
Last year Ariana also performed at the event, singing six of his songs and having the presence of singer Nathan Sykes in Almost Is Never Enough.
