Ariana Grande shares heartfelt message to fans for their support in wake of Manchester attack
The European leg of Ariana Grande‘s Dangerous Woman tour has come to an end, and the singer is concluding by expressing her deepest gratitude to her fans.
“I just wanted to thank you properly for the overwhelming love and support you’ve shown me, my crew, and each other during this challenging time,” Grande wrote, explaining that her generous fans have helped heal her since the attack. “Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your generosity in supporting One Love Manchester and for helping the families as much as you possibly could.”
Grande shared several photographs and videos from the tour of herself and her band, including one of her singing one of her Manchester singles, a cover of “Somewhere Over the Rainbow.”
“Thank you for bringing your absolute brightest, most passionate, contagious energy to these shows and for wiping my tears away,” she went on. “I hope you can feel my love, wherever you are because I’m sending you all that I’ve got. See you so soon.”
The posts weren’t Grande’s only tribute to fans and Manchester. The singer returned to the UK city in June to host the One Love Manchester benefit concert alongside artists like Coldplay, Miley Cyrus, Pharrell, the Black Eyed Peas, and more. It reportedly raised more than $3 million in proceeds.
Grande also postponed her tour and took some time to visit survivors at the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital who had been injured at her show. She’s even set to receive an honorary Manchester citizenship from the Manchester City Council for her efforts in wake of the tragedy.
After the benefit concert, she finished out the remainder of her European tour and is set to continue performing with her June 29 show in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
