Another highlight marked this concert: the cover of the song Ariana Grande My Everything by students of the choir of the school Parrs Wood Manchester.

Ariana Grande's One Love Manchester Concert has raised an overall over $13 million for the victims of the May 22 Manchester attack.

Piers Morgan has apologised to Ariana Grande, admitting that he "misjudged" her when he claimed after the Manchester terror attack that she should have remained in the United Kingdom to help "comfort" her fans.

"One Love Manchester" was the most-watched program this year on British television this year as millions of United Kingdom viewers tuned into the benefit gig, which was held to raise money for the victims of the terror attack at Ariana Grande's May 22 concert.

In the days following Grande's sold-out show on Sunday, which raised some $3 million for a victims fund and became the UK's most-watched TV broadcast of the year, Britons have embraced the 23-year-old singer.


PRS director Imogen Heap was among the performers who gave a rendition of her song Hide and Seek as part of the event. Katy Perry encouraged concertgoers to touch their neighbor to say "I love you". "She's strong for her fans", he said.

Grande performed throughout the show, singing her hits from "Side to Side" to "Break Free".

Cyrus said she was "so honored to be at this incredible event" and performed "Happy" alongside Pharrell, who also sang "Get Lucky".

Take That, who are from Manchester, followed with fun energy that the crowd danced to.

Coldplay's Chris Martin took to the stage to perform the Oasis song Don't Look Back in Anger, which has become an anthem for Manchester since the bombing, before accompanying the group's frontman Liam Gallagher for a rendition of Live Forever, which the Mancunian dedicated to "the attractive people who were killed and injured" in the attack.
