Pop singer Ariana Grande took to Twitter today to make a statement about Monday’s bombing in Manchester that left 22 people dead and dozens more injured. Following the tragic event, Grande canceled her Dangerous Woman tour, but in the statement she says she plans to return to Manchester to perform a benefit concert for the victims and their families.
She said, in part:
Our response to this violence must be to come closer together, to help each other, to love more, to sing louder and to live more kindly and generously than we did before.
Here’s her full statement:
