Grande to return to stage Sunday for Manchester benefit show

By The Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) — Ariana Grande is scheduled to return to the stage Sunday in Manchester, England, for a concert to raise money for victims of a suicide bombing that struck at the end of her last show nearly two weeks ago.

She won't be alone.

A star-studded lineup including Justin Bieber, Coldplay, Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, Marcus Mumford and Take That is scheduled to perform at the "One Love Manchester" concert at the city's Old Trafford cricket ground. The show will be broadcast across the globe and proceeds will go to an emergency fund set up by the city of Manchester and the British Red Cross.

The May 22 attack at Grande's Manchester concert killed 22 and wounded dozens more. The pop singer visited young fans injured in the attack at the Royal Manchester Children's Hospital on Friday.

Sunday's concert comes one day after attackers targeted the heart of London, killing seven people. Authorities have said the attack started with a van plowing into pedestrians and then involved three men using large knives to attack people in bars and restaurants at a nearby market.

"We will not quit or operate in fear. We won't let this divide us. We won't let hate win," Grande wrote in a statement when she announced the benefit concert last week. "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."

Other performers will include Pharrell Williams, Usher, the Black Eyed Peas, Robbie Williams and Niall Horan.

The concert will be broadcast on a variety of outlets.

Disney's young adult cable network Freeform will air the full concert live at 2 p.m. EDT on Sunday. ABC plans a one-hour highlight special following its NBA Finals telecast.

The concert also will be broadcast on more than 130 iHeartRadio stations, and MTV will livestream the event on the website www.onelovemanchester.mtv.com.
