Grande and other high-profile musicians united tonight to perform in Manchester to honor the victims of the May 22 suicide attack.

There are so many ways you can support those affected by this tragedy, and the attack in London yesterday, including through the British Red Cross Society's U.K. Soldarity Fund here.

Police officers and security guards have been celebrated for their work at the One Love Manchester concert held for the victims of the city's terror attack - and for their dancing.

Grande was joined by other stars such as her boyfriend rapper Mac Miller and singers Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry and Robbie Williams.

All proceeds from the worldwide distribution of TV rights will go towards the We Love Manchester Emergency Fund, set up by Manchester City Council in partnership with the British Red Cross. The concert, which was hosted at Emirates Old Trafford in Manchester, raised $2.6 million in donations, contributing to the $12.9 million already raised.

"We expect to raise another one and half million pounds from ticket sales ... and then further funding from the TV rights and merchandising".

Katy Perry also left a mark with her resilient performance: She sang a stripped down version of her hit, "Part of You". Grande visited young fans injured in the attack at the Royal Manchester Children's Hospital on Friday. He said: "Seeing you guys coming together was a sight to behold, we love you, we are with you, the whole world is watching". She told the audience, "Manchester, we're gonna be alright".

"One of the biggest surprises of the night came late in the concert, with Liam Gallagher taking the stage to perform a solo set heavy with Oasis hits, including 'Rock and Roll Star".

"I'd like to wrap my arms around each and every one of you and tell you thank you from the bottom of our hearts", she told the crowd.
