Ariana Grande says she will return to Manchester to hold a benefit gig for victims of the suicide bombing at her concert.
Twenty-two individuals were killed when a suicide plane exploded his explosives in a group abandoning her show at the Manchester Arena on Monday.
“I’ll be returning to the incredibly brave city of Manchester to spend time with my fans and to have a benefit concert in honor of and to raise funds for the victims and their families,” the star said in a statement on Twitter.
“There is nothing I or anyone can do to take away the pain you are feeling or make this better.
“However, I extend my hand and heart and everything I possibly can give to you and yours, should you want or need my help in any way.
“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 star said the assault had weighed vigorously at the forefront of her thoughts:”I have been thinking of my fans, and of you all, non stop over the past week.
“The compassion, kindness, love strength and oneness that you’ve shown one another this past week is the exact opposite of the heinous intentions it must take to pull off something as evil as what happened Monday.
“YOU are the opposite.”
