One Love Manchester raises £2.6 million in 3 hours

Swiss fans of Ariana Grande gather in support of Manchester victims

Other stars included Pharrell Williams, One Direction's Niall Horan, Justin Bieber, Little Mix and Imogen Heap, while Katy Perry performed her hit Roar, saying: "We will not be silenced, Manchester".

Proceeds from the concert will go to the We Love Manchester Emergency Fund, set up by Manchester City Council with the British Red Cross, to support grieving families and victims.

She did, of course, visit victims last week but Morgan, who thinks he is doing the Lord's work by calling out the transgressions of famous women when they fail to conform to what he has deemed correct behaviour, could not concede that she was alright really until the One Love concert proved her strength and compassion beyond all doubt.

The crowd, who raised posters dedicated to the "angels" whose lives were taken, joined Grande and the Black-Eyed Peas in raising heart signs throughout the arena.

"Manchester, I love you with all my heart", 23-year-old Grande told the crowd at the sold-out Old Trafford cricket ground on Sunday night.

"I just want to honor those who were lost, those that were taken from us", he said as he fought back tears.

"Tonight has been filled with love and fun and bright energy, so thank you for that". The "Break Free" singer was visibly emotional on stage as she performed alongside boyfriend Mac Miller, Miley Cyrus and The Black Eyed Peas.

Perhaps the most emotional moment of the evening happened when Grande joined the Parrs Wood High School Choir for a tearful performance of "My Everything".

Joan had been present in the front row at Ariana's show during the attack in Manchester and helped terrified fans to safety as the horrific events unfolded.

The One Love Manchester concert aired across the globe.
