The singer who was performing on the night that suicide bomber Salman Abedi detonated his bomb in the foray of the Manchester Arena killing twenty two people and wounding more than 800, many of whom were children, tweeted.
“thinking of you all today and every day I love you with all of me and am sending you all of the light and warmth I have to offer on this challenging day”
Grande recently spoke with the magazine Time in her first interview about the attack, which she called “the absolute worst of humanity.”
“Music is supposed to be the safest thing in the world,” she said. “I think that’s why it’s still so heavy on my heart every single day. I wish there was more that I could fix.”
There have been many tweets of support this morning.Greater Manchester mayor Andy Burnham said:”Today we come together, we remember each of the 22 people whose lives were taken.”
