Following last week’s Manchester attack at an Ariana Grande concert that claimed 22 lives and left 59 injured, Ariana has released a full statement and announced a benefit show for the victims.
Ariana first expressed her sorrow very briefly on Twitter; understandably lost for words to address such a profound and horrific event.
from the bottom of my heart, i am so so sorry. i don't have words.

But just a few days ago she took to Twitter again to make a lengthy response to the attacks.
“My heart, prayers and deepest condolences are with the victims of the Manchester Attack and their loved ones,” she starts.
“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 also announced she’ll be returning to Manchester for a benefit concert to raise money for the victims.
“I’ll be returning to the incredibly brave city of Manchester to spend time with my fans and to have a benefit concert in honour of and to raise money for the victims and their families”.
