In one heartfelt moment, Grande was joined on stage by children from a local school, some of whom were at the targeted Manchester Arena concert, as the group performed her hit song "My Everything". She managed to meet the pop star after the concert.
"Thank you for coming together and being so loving and strong". "I don't care what religion or ethnicity you are, love really is the way".
The empowering concert flowed with smiles and tears as dedications were made to all those affected by the tragedy.
Grande said that she had met with the mother of 15-year-old victim Olivia Campbell-Hardy, who said she "wouldn't have wanted her to cry" but would have wanted her to "play all the hits".
Her nine-year-old daughter Scarlet adopted a defiant tone, telling others not to be afraid.
Ariana Grande returned to the stage Sunday, two weeks after a suicide bombing killed 22 people at her concert in Manchester.
The most entertaining moments from the Election Debate
Liberal Democrat leader Tim Farron slammed the Prime Minister for "running away" from the debate on Wednesday evening. May ruled out appearing on televised debates soon after calling the election .
Well, it wasn't long after the concert was kicked off that Twitter was reacting to the show!
"I don't feel or smell or hear or see any fear in this building". "The only thing we'll feel here tonight is love, and positivity". "We want everyone to stand strong".
Sunday's concert was held on the eve of the first funeral of Manchester attack victims. Authorities have said the attack started with a van plowing into pedestrians and then involved three men using large knives to attack people in bars and restaurants at a nearby market.
In the aftermath of the horrific attack, the police in Manchester -much like those in London - have worked tirelessly to protect everyone in the city from future harm.
Grande appeared on stage at the Emirates Old Trafford cricket ground in an an oversized white One Love Manchester sweatshirt and seemed overcome by emotion at points as she was joined by a string of musical stars.
Ariana and her manager Scooter Braun began planning the One Love gig just days after the attack on her Manchester gig, and her fellow musicians were full of praise for how she handled the tragedy.
