It included performances from Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, Liam Gallagher, Katy Perry, Coldplay and Imogen Heap, whose rendition of her cult meme classic 'Hide and Seek' went largely underreported.

All proceeds from the event will go toward the "We Love Manchester Emergency Fund", in partnership with the British Red Cross and Manchester City Council.

"I want to thank you for that".


She cancelled shows she was due to give in London, Belgium, Germany, Poland and Switzerland, and returned to Florida, before coming back to Manchester on Sunday to headline an all-star benefit show for victims of the attack. "Break Free" is up 139%, while "My Everything", which she performed with a high school choir, has scored a 141% increase. "Well, the fantastic news is we've already raised around 7 million pounds [$9 million]", chief executive Mike Adamson told the Associated Press. A Facebook spokesperson reports the social media giant's own had 76 million views, with a view being defined as three seconds or more being watched. "All we feel tonight is love, resilience, and positivity". "I love you guys so much and I think the kind of love and unity that you're displaying is the medicine the world really needs right now".

"I don't want to feel or hear or see any fear in this building", U.S. singer Pharrell Williams told the crowd as he led them in a rendition of his hit single "Happy".

Cyrus said she was "so honored to be at this incredible event" and performed "Happy" alongside Pharrell, who also sang "Get Lucky".


Take That, who are from Manchester, followed with fun energy that the crowd danced to.

"I don't feel or smell or hear or see any fear in this building". Manchester remains strong and the unforgettable experience has earned the singer more respect. "Manchester we're strong. We're still singing our song", he sang with the audience of 60,000.

The Manchester concert comes the day after attackers targeted the heart of London, killing seven people.
