One Love Manchester Concert Raises $3.5 Million And Counting

Piers Morgan has tweeted an apology to Ariana Grande after lambasting the singer for flying back to the United States in the aftermath of a bombing attack at her May 22 show in Manchester. 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 USA dollars, which will all go towards the We Love Manchester fund.

To donate £5 to the We Love Manchester fund, text LOVE to 70507.

Just as moved were her fans-like this baby whose eyes watered and whose lips pouted while watching Grande perform during the concert.

Ariana Grande promised shortly after that she would return to Manchester.

The singer and her "Dangerous Woman" tour crew were joined by artists from Manchester Ink backstage after Sunday's One Love Manchester concert.

Gianluigi Donnarumma tells AC Milan he will not renew contract
The teenage goalkeeper, who has been hailed as the next Gianluigi Buffon, is out of contract this time next year and now locked in talks regarding a new deal.

Ever since the attack, Grande, 23, has been encouraging donations on social media and visited some still-recovering fans at Royal Manchester Children's Hospital on Friday.

Piers Morgan had a lot to say about Ariana Grande shortly after the Manchester terrorist attack two weeks ago, but has been forced eat his words after the "One Love Manchester" concert.

That brings the total raised by the British Red Cross' "We Love Manchester Emergency Fund" to almost $13 million.

50,000 people attended One Love Manchester. The single follows Grande's re-release of "One Last Time", which is also sharing proceeds to those affected by the tragedy.

The whopping sum has been raised through ticket sales, merchandise, and other donations, with over £2 million alone coming from text message donations from within the United Kingdom during the three hours that the concert was aired for.
