On May 22, suicide bomber Salman Abedi detonated a homemade bomb following singer Ariana Grande’s concert at the Manchester Arena in Manchester, England.
In what was the deadliest attack in the U.K. since the July 2005 London bombings, 23 adults and children, including Abedi, were killed and 119 were injured. The youngest victim was just eight years old. Families of the victims as well as Grande herself were heartbroken and devastated in the wake of the senseless terrorist attack.
On June 4, the One Love Manchester benefit concert was held at the Old Trafford Cricket Ground, during which artists including Grande, Katy Perry, Coldplay, and Niall Horan performed for free to raise money for the Manchester Emergency Fund set up to help the victims and their families.
