Ariana Grande’s Emotional ‘Somewhere Over The Rainbow’ Performance Had Us In Tears

Ariana Grande broke down in tears while closing out the One Love Manchester benefit concert Sunday night with a stunning performance of “Somewhere Over The Rainbow.” 

The singer, who also performed a number of times throughout the show, began the final performance by first singing her song “One Last Time.” All the artists who participated in the show stood onstage with Grande, projecting a strong message of solidarity. 

As she sang, Grande held her mic out to the crowd and they sang along to every word. 

In what may have been the most powerful moment of the show, Grande performed “Somewhere Over The Rainbow” alone onstage. The stunning performance had many in the crowd in tears.

Grande herself was also overcome with emotion, breaking down before finishing the song. The crowd then erupted into cheers and the singer managed to get through the final bit beautifully. 

Proceeds from the One Love Manchester benefit will go toward the victims and families affected by the tragic attack that took place at Manchester Arena last month during one of Grande’s concerts. A bomb was detonated at the arena, killing 22 people, including children, and injuring at least 59 others. 

Following the attack, Grande said she was left feeling “broken.” 

My heart, prayers and deepest condolences are with the victims of the Manchester Attack and their loved ones,” Grande later wrote in a statement. “There is nothing I or anyone can do to take away the pain you are feeling or to make this better.”

She added, “The only thing we can do now is choose how we let this affect us and how we live our lives from here on out.” 

The benefit concert also took place just one night after terror struck in the U.K. once again. A vehicle plowed into a crowd of pedestrians on London Bridge, killing seven and injuring 50 more. The benefit seemed to take on an even more powerful meaning following the London attack, with the stars sharing uplifting messages in solidarity with both U.K. cities.

Tickets For Ariana Grande’s Manchester Benefit Concert Sold Out In Under 6 Minutes

Tickets for Ariana Grande’s One Love Manchester benefit concert, for the victims of the recent terror attack at Manchester Arena, went on sale Thursday. Within a matter of minutes, they were sold out. 

There were roughly 45,000 tickets available for the show, according to People, and as the Twitter account for the concert confirmed, they had all been purchased in under six minutes.  

Fans who were at the original concert were offered free tickets by registering with Ticketmaster UK, though it appeared some were unable to get any. 

“We understand that there are a number of fans who didn’t receive an email this morning with regards to free tickets for One Love Manchester,” Ticketmaster UK said in a statement online. “We worked through the night and verified thousands of original bookings although there were some we could not verify.” 

“We would like to reassure any fans that were at the show, that they will receive a free ticket for One Love Manchester, provided we can verify their initial booking,” the statement continued.

The company reopened the registration site following the sale, though it is now closed. Fans needed their original booking confirmation in order to be verified. 

Ticketmaster UK also took action against those who tried reselling their tickets by canceling their orders. 

Stars like Katy Perry, Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus and former One Directioner Niall Horan are all signed on to perform, as are Pharrell and Coldplay.

Proceeds from the benefit show, which will take place this coming Sunday at the Emirates Old Trafford stadium, will go to Red Cross’ We Love Manchester Emergency Fund. According to People, the concert is expected to raise over $ 2 million for the victims of the tragic attack and their families.
