Monday, June 5, 2017

Twitter users have heaped praise onto the One Love Manchester concert after the star-studded gig wowed the world last night.

The event was intended to raise funds for the We Love Manchester Emergency Fund, which was established by the British Red Cross and Manchester City Council. 

The concert was inspired by American singer Ariana Grande, whose concert was bombed shortly after it concluded on May 22, killing 22 people and injuring dozens more

An all-star line-up was added to the roster, including Katy Perry, Justin Bieber, the Black Eyed Peas, and Coldplay, and the whole concert was broadcasted live across a series of TV, radio, and online platforms.

It went ahead despite a new terror attack in London the day before, and the reaction to it has been overwhelmingly positive.
