Manchester Benefit Concert Births Emotional Viral Moment

Perry also left a mark with her resilient performance: She sang a stripped down version of her hit, "Part of Me". You're an fantastic wonderful young woman.

"Let no one take that away from you". Especially in moments like this it can be hard", adding, "But love conquers fear and love conquers hate. Olivia wouldn't want anybody in tears.

Grande joined her big name guests throughout the day, performing alongside many of them. The song acted as a tribute to the lives lost in the explosion that marred her "Dangerous Woman World Tour" stop in Manchester on May 22.

The benefit, which took place at Manchester's Old Trafford Cricket Ground, raised funds to support the victims of a suicide bombing that killed 22 people at the end of Grande's concert last month.

"I want to thank you so much for coming together and being strong", Grande told the crowd.

"We had a totally different show planned and had a rehearsal but changed everything". Texts cost £5 plus your standard network rate, with 100% of your donation going to the We Love Manchester Fund.

Perry played an emotionally-charged set that included a performance of her 2013 track "Roar", asking fans to shout "I love you" at each other while leading a singalong.
