“ONE LAST TIME” HITS NUMBER ONE ON ITUNES AS FANS PRAISE ARIANA GRANDE 7

Ariana Grande’s One Love concert, which was televised live around the world from the Emirates Old Trafford cricket ground in Manchester and raised more than £2.5 million in just three hours, has been widely praised by both celebrities and music fans.

The singer and a host of acts including Take That, Robbie Williams, Miley Cyrus, Little Mix and Pharrell Williams took to the stage to raise money for the victims of the Manchester bombing, and Twitter users were left feeling proud, emotional and filled with admiration for the 23-year-old star and her fellow performers, as you can see for yourself via the tweets below.

In the UK alone, at it’s peak, over 14 million people tuned in to watch the concert, and since then, support for what Ariana did has been so strong that the stars’ anthem “One Last Time” – the final song she performed at her Manchester show moments before the tragic events unfolded, has risen to the top of the iTunes chart. Not only that, but her album Dangerous Woman also currently sits in top position.

At least 76p from each sale of the single on iTunes is being donated to the We Love Manchester Emergency Fund, which has been set up by the British Red Cross and the city council.
