Ariana Grande’s “Over the Rainbow” Cover Is Now a Charity Single

50,000 people attended One Love Manchester.On Sunday, Ariana bravely returned to Manchester to perform at One Love Manchester benefit concert with her star- studded friends.The average audience for the live event was the largest since the 11.6 million viewers for BBC One’s coverage of the 2016 New Year’s Eve Fireworks.The singer resumed her tour on Wednesday night in Paris, a little more than two weeks after a bombing claimed the lives of 22 people who were leaving her May 22 show in Manchester, England.The likes of Coldplay, Liam Gallagher, Imogen Heap and Take That were among the huge names united onstage for the event at the Old Trafford cricket ground in Manchester last night (4 June). Grande said she completely changed the tone of the concert after meeting with the family of 15-year-old Olivia Campbell, one of the victims who died. It also came less than 24 hours after a terrorist attack in London left seven people dead and dozens injured.The Red Cross in a statement Monday said that almost $13 million has been raised for the fund since a suicide bombing at the end of Grande’s May 22 show in Manchester.”We will not quit or operate in fear”, Grande stated in a full statement about the Manchester attack.Just as moved were her fans-like this baby whose eyes watered and whose lips pouted while watching Grande perform during the concert. Including proceeds from the 50,000 fans who showed up to the event, the Manchester Evening News adds that this puts the final number at more than £10 million, or nearly $13 million in United States dollars, which will all go towards the We Love Manchester fund.During Sunday’s concert, Grande asked a local children’s choir to help her sing “My Everything”, the title track off her second album.The concert, which aired on BBC1, attracted a peak of 14.5 million viewers.
