May 30th, 2017 under Ariana Grande. [ Comments: none ]

This Sunday, Ariana Grande will get some of music’s biggest names together to play a benefit concert in Manchester to raise money for Red Cross‘ Manchester Emergency Fund supporting the victims of the May 22nd bombing.

The announced acts are Justin Bieber, Coldplay, Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, Pharrell, Usher, Take That and One Direction’s Niall Horan with more names to be added throughout the week.

People who attended the tragic show, can register to get free tickets. Everyone else can purchase tickets via Ticketmaster this Thursday at 10a for One Love Manchester at Emirates Old Trafford. Can’t make it across the pond in time, BBC will air it live on television and radio.

I respect Grande for going back to Manchester and raising money for the victims. She could have just continued her tour, but instead this will be her first show since the incident that changed the way we will forever go to concerts. Music can be used for healing, so let the healing begin.


Ariana Grande plans a benefit concert for the Manchester Bombing victims

Ariana Grande broke her silence today about Monday’s deadly attack at the end of her concert in Manchester with a heartfelt letter and she promises to do a benefit concert for the victims.

The singer said, “My heart, prayers and deepest condolences are with the victims of the Manchester Attack and their loved ones.

“There is nothing I or anyone can do to take away the pain you are feeling or to make this better. However, I extend my hand and heart and everything I possibly can give to you and yours, should you want or need my help in any way.”

She then continued with, “I have been thinking of my fans, and of you all, non stop over the past week. The way you have handled all of this has been more inspiring and made me more proud than you’ll ever know. The compassion, kindness, love, strength, and oneness that you’ve shown one another this past week is the exact opposite of the heinous intentions it must take to pull off something as evil as what happened Monday.

“YOU are the opposite.” And the impactful one liners didn’t stop there as she wrote, “We will not quit or operate in fear…We won’t let this divide us…We won’t let hate win.”

Then she promised to return to Manchester with a star filled benefit concert to honor “the ones we lost, their loved ones, my fans and all affected by this tragedy” who will remain on “my mind and in my heart everyday and I will think of them with everything I do for the rest of my life.”

Since the concert is in the process of being set up, she promises to share all the details once everything is finalized.

I think she is suffering from survivor’s guilt, even though there is nothing more she could have done and it isn’t her fault. But that reaction is normal in this case. We need to give her time to heal just like everyone else who was effected by that night. A night none of us we will ever forget. We won’t be afraid to go to concerts, we will just be more aware of our surrounding like we are when we go to a movie theater. Terror won’t win as much as they want it too. Love will! Be kind to strangers and that little effort can make this World a better place. I know I sound all peace, love and harmony; but I truly believe it makes a huge difference. So sue me!


Ariana Grande will reportedly pay for the 22 funerals

Even though it is not Ariana Grande’s fault what happened in Manchester on Monday night, she feels the need to do something. The Twitter page Ariana Updates Tweeted, “News on Ariana: Ariana has reached out to the families who’s loves ones died last night….she is gonna pay for the funerals!”

The gesture is a very nice one because it is one less thing these families need to worry about. It is a shame they have to worry about burying their loved ones at all. Those 22 people went to have a fun memorable night out and now their friends and family are living a nightmare. For what? There is nothing any of those terrorists can say that can justify their hate. They are not following the Koran because they did not die in the name of religion, instead they died in the name of hate. There is a difference, so no virgins for you. No martyrdom for you. Just hell. They don’t even deserve hell because that is too good for these bastards.

If they think bombings are the answer, they are not. The bombings do not make people want to join their cause, it makes people want to fight their cause. Nothing comes out these bombings but hate towards them. They need to think up a new a way to get the word out because this one has been a big fail for generations.

As bad as these bombers looked, the people of Manchester and Ariana Grande look amazing. They all came together to help the victims with love. Love is the answer.

I was a Religious Studies major in college (long story and it involves a cute boy) and I learned religions are not about hate. All these people who use it for that reason are spitting on their religion. Religion is about love and helping others, not hate and killing.


Explosion leads to deaths and injuries at an Ariana Grande concert

A concert is supposed to be a happy event and a safe place, but Ariana Grande’s turned into a nightmare tonight. The singer was wrapping up her concert in Manchester, England when a loud boom, reportedly an explosion possibly a bomb, suddenly filled the Manchester Arena. Concert goers went running for safety, but not everyone got OK. Sadly, there are “multiple fatalities” and many more injured according to Greater Manchester Police.

As with breaking news of this type, there is a lot of misinformation. BBC is trying their best to keep it all straight, so you can check the site for updates.

What is confirmed by GM Police is that explosion happened around 10:35p GMT outside the concert hall in foyer area. As of 8:14p EST at least 19 souls have lost their lives, around 50 people have been injured. It is currently being treated as a terrorist incident until police determine otherwise. Ariana Grande’s rep says the singer is OK physically.

Prayers go out to everyone in Manchester especially those who were at the concert.

UPDATE: Ariana Grande has put her International tour on hold and Tweeted, “broken. from the bottom of my heart, i am so so sorry. i don’t have words.” Meanwhile, her manager Scooter Braun released this statement, “Tonight, out hearts are broken. Words cannot express our sorrow for the victims and families harmed in this senseless attack.
“We mourn the lives of children and loved ones taken by this cowardly act. We are thankful for the selfless service tonight of Manchester’s first responders, who rushed towards danger to help save lives. We ask all of you to hold the victims, their families and all those affected in your hearts and prayers.”


BTWF singing: Ariana Grande at Florida Panthers

Before Ariana Grande was singing her own songs to packed arenas, she was singing the Star Spangled Banner at a Florida Panthers game. What a voice the 8 year old had back in 2001 when she sang the National Anthem to open that hockey game.
