Grande returned to Britain on Friday to lead an all-star benefit concert on Sunday and quickly headed for a hospital in the northern English city where numerous injured are being treated. "I mean, I'm up for it but I think we're booked for a gig somewhere", he told Radio 1, when asked about the possibility of the siblings taking to the stage together on Sunday.

A vehicle veered off the road and mowed down pedestrians on London Bridge, turning a summery Saturday night into a scene of panic and chaos. "We won't let hate win", Grande said in a statement.

Singers Ariana Grande, Demi Lovato, Joe Jonas, actors Mandy Moore and Debra Messing among others are sending their prayers to people of London after the two terror attacks killed six people and injured 30 others.

The Old Trafford Cricket Ground has a capacity of 50,000 seats when compared with Manchester Arena's 22,000-person capacity.

The star will be joined by other musicians including Justin Bieber, Coldplay, Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry, Pharrell Williams, Take That, One Direction's Niall Horan, Usher, Robbie Williams, Black Eyed Peas and Little Mix.

Freeform, ABC and ABC News are all part of The Walt Disney Company. There is nothing I or anyone can do to take away the pain you are feeling or to make this better.

"Whilst we want you to enjoy yourself, we also want people to be remain vigilant".

Grande is now back in Manchester paying visits to victims in hospital and also to the loved ones of those lost.

Proceeds from the show, which will broadcast live across the globe, will go to an emergency fund set up by the city of Manchester and the British Red Cross. "It was a complete surprise", her mother, Sharon, told the newspaper.

All Grande fans who attended the targeted gig were offered free passes to Sunday's benefit concert regardless of where they bought their tickets. "For such a young woman to have the bravery to stand up and do that, I think every act should take notice". If Oasis ever got back together..., if they do, they do.

Eagle Radio is joining radio stations across the United Kingdom in broadcasting the One Love Manchester concert on Sunday evening. As a result, there will be "a significant number of officers", some of whom will be armed, from the local police force as well as neighboring ones.
