As promised from the pop music icon herself, Ariana Grande returned to Manchester just one week after the deadly attack that claimed the lives of several citizens, including her fans, after her concert on May 29.
The 23-year-old songstress gifted Manchester fans with a benefit concert to honor the fallen individuals with the help of several other stars such as Pharrell, will.i.am., Mac Miller and Justin Bieber. Such a star-studded lineup was only right following the outpour of support she and the Manchester community received from Hollywood after the catastrophe. R&B singer-songwriter heartthrob and veteran Usher was also originally a part of the musician roster. Unfortunately, his absence was major part of a few fans’ disappointment from the concert however.

Usher just came on the radio and I have a serious question, WHERE WERE YOU LAST NIGHT? #OneLoveManchester— Lauren 💃🏻 (@laurenquig90) June 5, 2017
Remember, this is NOT a Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, Usher etc concert. This is to remember the victims of that night. #OneLoveManchester— UK Bieber News (@UK_BieberNews) May 30, 2017
