Ariana Grande, Niall Horan perform at ‘One Love Manchester’ benefit concert

June 4 (UPI) — More than 50,000 people attended the star-studded One Love Manchester benefit concert at Emirates Old Trafford Cricket Ground in England Sunday.

The event was arranged to raise money for the victims of the May 22 suicide bombing at Ariana Grande‘s concert in Manchester. Twenty-two people were killed and dozens more injured in the incident.

The One Love show took place just hours after another terror attack killed seven and hurt 50 in London.

“Last night, this nation was challenged and all of you were challenged and you had a decision to make if you were going to come out here tonight and this is so beautiful,” Grande’s manager Scooter Braun told this weekend’s concertgoers. “You guys made that decision. You looked fear right in the face and you said, ‘No, we are Manchester and the world is watching.'”

Taking the stage throughout the sold-out show were Grande, Niall Horran, Take That, Robbie Williams, Pharrell Williams, Miley Cyrus, Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, Black Eyed Peas and Coldplay.

“I don’t feel or smell or hear or see any fear in this building. All we feel here tonight is love, resilience, positivity,” Williams said.
