Mumford & Sons singer holds moment of silence

Jun 05, 2017, 07:41

The singer took to the stage after a one-minute silence for the 22 victims who lost their lives in the bombing at the Ariana Grande concert at Manchester Arena.

The singer performed a number of songs to her audience of 50,000 people including a surprise collaboration with The Parrs Wood School Choir who were performing her song "My Everything".

Even during that song, Grande began to tear up while singing and with good reason - "One Last Time" is reportedly the final song she sang during her May 22 concert in Manchester, before the terrorist attack occurred.

The leader of rock band Mumford & Sons performed the song Timshel, which included the lyrics: "But you are not alone in this, and you are not alone in this, as brothers we will stand and we'll hold your hand".

All proceeds from ticket sales will go to the One Love Manchester fund for victims of the May 22 concert where 22 concert-goers were killed and 59 injured.

Other acts at the sold-out show include Coldplay, Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus and Usher. "And I want to thank you for that".

The Manchester concert comes the day after attackers targeted the heart of London, killing seven people.

She said: "I had the pleasure of meeting Olivia's mummy a few days ago and I started to cry and gave her a big hug and she said stop crying, because Olivia wouldn't have wanted you to cry. I wanna take a moment to introduce the next performer who's been my idol since I was 11 years old", said Ariana, introducing Imogen, who sang "Hide and Seek".

The singer appeared to get emotional as he told those gathered that "God loves you so, so much". "Today's One Love Manchester benefit concert will not only continue, but will do so with greater objective".

The money raised will go toward assisting the families and surviving victims of the May 22 suicide bombing.

"What an fantastic thing we're doing tonight, would you agree", Bieber said.

"It's taken quite a lot to come here today", said Alison Davies, from Warrington. "Would you agree that love always wins?" before taking a moment to honor all the people who passed away in the tragedy. "All we feel here tonight is love, resilience, positivity", Williams said.

Scooter also praised fans for coming to the concert following last night's terror attack on London Bridge and Borough Market and called Ariana "one of the bravest people I know".

But because of you, we can now represent a worldwide community, that we will be ready, we will be fearless, we will be courageous and we will honour our children, and the children of Manchester and all those children around the world.
