Ariana Grande plans to proceed with her Manchester benefit concert on Sunday “with greater purpose” following another deadly terror attack in London on Saturday, her manager, Scooter Braun, said in a statement.
“We plan to honor them with courage, bravery and defiance in the face of fear,” he added.
Read the full statement below.
After the events of last night in London, and those in Manchester just two weeks ago, we feel a sense of responsibility to honor those lost, injured, and affected.
We plan to honor them with courage, bravery, and defiance in the face of fear. Today’s One Love Manchester benefit concert will not only continue, but will do so with greater purpose.
We must not be afraid and in tribute to all those affected here and around the world, we will bring our voices together and sing loudly. I am pleased to say we have the full support of Greater Manchester Police and the government and are assured the safety of all those attending is the highest priority.
All artists involved have been unwavering in their support this morning and are determined to carry on with the show. We ask the strong city of Manchester and the world to join us in making the statement that hatred and fear will never win. Today we stand together. Thank you.
