Ariana Grande is making good on her promise to hold a benefit concert for victims of the terrorist attack at her concert in Manchester, England. The benefit concert is on track for this Sunday at Manchester’s Old Trafford cricket ground.

The concert comes less than two weeks after a suicide bomber killed 22 people and injured at least 116 at Grande’s concert May 22 at Manchester Arena.

A number of top artists will be joining Grande for Sunday’s event. The AP reports that Justin Bieber, Coldplay, Katy Perry, Pharrell Williams, Miley Cyrus, Usher, Niall Horan and Take That are all on the bill. The event is being called the “One Love Manchester” show.

Tickets reportedly go on sale Thursday, with proceeds going to an emergency fund set up by the city of Manchester and the British Red Cross.

In a statement, Grande said: “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.”

The statement adds: “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.”

  1. What a class act she is!! Kiss and Blondie cancel their concerts and this young lady comes back a few weeks after that horrible incident, where she could have been injured herself. I am going to iTunes and buying her latest album. The entertainment industry needs more people like her.
