Fans gathered in Manchester for a star-studded charity concert on Sunday, recalling victims of a suicide bomb attack following an Ariane Grande concert last month and vowing to face down fears of terrorism less than 24 hours after an assault in London claimed seven lives.
"We will continue in honor of the ones we lost, their loved ones, my fans and all affected by this tragedy", she added. Thank you so much for coming together and being so loving and strong and unified.
Take That, who are from Manchester, followed Mumford.
"And just I was about to leave the room, Adam looked at me and he said, "hey Scooter, make sure you tell them don't go forward in anger, love spreads".
She told the audience, "Manchester, we're gonna be all right".
Williams was visibly emotional as he struggled to string the touching lyrics together, blowing a kiss to the sky for the 22 people killed at Grande's concert almost two weeks ago.
The Neil Finn-penned lyric "we know they won't win" was an appropriate sentiment as Manchester recovers from the attack just 13 days ago and came a day after terrorism again struck London. "Let no one take that away from you", she said.
She sang Fergie's verse on the Black Eyed Peas hit, "Where Is the Love?" along with the group; she performed a duet with Miley Cyrus; and she performed her debut song, "The Way", with rapper Mac Miller.

Coldplay were also a crowd favorite, performing well-known songs like "Viva La Vida" and "Fix You".
All proceeds from the concert, taking place at the Emirates Old Trafford stadium in the city, are going to the Red Cross's Manchester Emergency Fund to help victims and families impacted by the attack.
"I'm bowing because despite all the things that have been going on in this place, I don't feel, or smell or see any fear in this building".
Greater Manchester Police Chief Superintendent Stuart Ellison said there would be a "significant number of officers" at the venue and encouraged people to leave bags at home. Grande visited young fans injured in the attack at the Royal Manchester Children's Hospital on Friday.
Rachel Jea, 32, said she was at Grande's previous Manchester concert and felt it was important to attend Sunday's show to regain trust after the bombing.
"Angel" came next, and both songs inspired loud sing-alongs from the audience.
Some of the choir's members attended Grande's May 22 concert.
"Today's One Love Manchester benefit concert will not only continue, but will do so with greater objective". "All we feel here tonight is love, resilience, positivity", Williams said before he launched into his hit song, "Happy" with an assist from Miley Cyrus. "We must not be afraid and in tribute to all those affected here and around the world, we will bring our voices together and sing loudly".
