Ariana Grande returns to the stage at #OneLoveManchester to give incredible, admirable performance

Paul Moore

So much respect.

The One Love Manchester concert has been a defiant, emotional and wonderful tribute to those 22 people that tragically lost their lives at the Manchester Arena.

Music has the power to bring people together, and while nobody will ever forget the devastation that the¬†cowardly attack on May 22nd produced, the British public have already demonstrated that they won’t be intimidated by acts of terror.

In fact, the Manchester attack has brought out the values, spirit and bonds that make the city so unique.

While the focus of this event is undoubtedly on the victims of this heinous attack, credit must go to Ariana Grande because in the midst of this chaos, it’s easy to forget that the singer is just 23.

For someone so young, the singer has showed remarkable strength, grace and humanity in the aftermath of that cowardly attack.

Tonight, the singer took to the stage for the first time since the tragedy and she has won so many new admirers during what must have been a difficult performance.
