Ariana Grande paid tribute to the city of Manchester, England, on Sunday with an energetic, all-star concert that raised millions for victims of a suicide bombing that tore through her last performance in the city almost two weeks ago.

Grande came back onstage to sing Fergie's verse on the Black Eyed Peas hit, "Where Is the Love?" with the group.

She performed her hit singles "Break Free", "Side by Side" and "My Way", which she performed with her boyfriend, rapper Mac Miller. The show will be broadcast across the globe and proceeds will go to an emergency fund set up by the city of Manchester and the British Red Cross.

Grande's mother tweeted on May 29, 2017, to share her thoughts on the bombing of her daughter's May 22, 2017, concert in Manchester, England which was subject to a terrorist attack. The leader of rock band Mumford & Sons strummed his guitar and sang "Timshel", which includes the lyrics: "But you are not alone in this, and you are not alone in this, as brothers we will stand and we'll hold your hand". "All we feel here tonight is love, resilience, positivity", said Pharrel Williams, who performed alongside Miley Cyrus.

Gallagher and Take That hail from Manchester.

Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher later joined Coldplay to sing "Live Forever", and Coldplay also sang "Fix You".

House committee issues subpoenas; Comey OK'd to testify
The committee was due to interview 10 witnesses this month, but its senior Democrat objected the move, sources told Politico . Schiff said that in both Sessions' and Nunes' cases, "commitments to recuse themselves have not been fully honored".

Singer Robbie Williams then took to the stage to lead the audience in a rousing rendition of his Manchester tribute song, "Strong".

Grande seemed overcome by emotion throughout the show which came less than 24 hours after seven people were killed and 48 injured in a terror attack in London Bridge.

American fans were able to watch the concert on the cable channel Freeform, as well as Grande's YouTube and Facebook pages.

Braun said a TV broadcasting the concert was set up at Royal Manchester Children's Hospital, where some victims were still recovering. ABC plans a one-hour highlight special following its NBA Finals telecast. We won't let this divide us.

"There are two large-scale events taking place in Greater Manchester today and we would like to assure people that these will still take place, but with additional security in place to ensure the safety of everyone", Greater Manchester Police Assistant Chief Constable Garry Shewan said in a statement on Sunday. "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".
