Grande announced concert plans this week, just days after playing the Manchester arena on May 22 where an attack took place the same night. In statements released this week, Grande has said that the concert is to honor and raise funds for victims and their families.
Proceeds from the concert will support the “We Love Manchester” emergency fund, set up by Manchester City Council in partnership with the British Red Cross. The fund will support the victims and their families. Rogers Radio audiences wanting to extend their support, can also donate by visiting the Red Cross webpage set up for the “We Love Manchester,” fund.
