On March 22, 2017, an Ariana Grande concert at Manchester Arena in the UK was bombed, leaving 22 people dead and over 100 wounded. It was a truly horrific act of terror, and left Grande and her fans dealing with the aftermath.
Following the event, Grande dealt with serious PTSD and used her grief to organize an all-star benefit concert in order to raise money for the victims and their families. During the show, Grande said:
"I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for being here today. I want to thank you so much for coming together and being so loving and strong and unified. I love you guys so much and I think that the kind of love and unity you're displaying is the kind of medicine that the world really needs right now."
