The bombing that took place this week in Manchester was a brutal attack of violence towards the music industry as a whole. Attacking and murdering young fans during what should have been one of the most special moments of their lives. It was despicable and the gravity of the attack shook the entire music scene as a shock wave. Ariana Grande initially announced she would be canceling the rest of her tour. Understandably so after the attack on her concert left 22 dead and another 50 maimed.
Today Ariana Grande released an impassioned statement saying she will return to Manchester and perform a benefit for the victims of the tragedy and visit with her fans. Ariana states she does not want to let the terrorists win, and we have to say this is a beautiful act of courage and selflessness. You can read her full statement below.
