Grande, Katy, Liam Gallagher sing for Manchester


The night was a massive success, managing to unify Britain in the wake of the terrorist attacks in both Manchester and London, and ahead of an increasingly tight General Election on Thursday.

According to the British Red Cross, almost $3 million (£2.35 million) was raised during the concert alone for the We Love Manchester Emergency Fund.

The 23-year-old pop star, who had to leave Manchester after the horrific attack at her May 22 concert here, made sure that her return filled the entire city with joy and happiness once again.

Wearing a sweat shirt graffitied with the legend One Love Manchester, Grande showed up several times throughout the three-hour show alongside Coldplay, Black Eyed Peas and Little Mix to celebrate the fighting spirit of Manchester.

On May 22 a suicide bomber blew himself up, killing 22 people including 7 children at a concert by Grande in Manchester.

Gallagher also performed the band's Rock "n" Roll Star and his own single, Wall Of Glass, before telling the 50,000-strong crowd at the Old Trafford cricket ground that Live Forever was for "the attractive people killed and injured in the Manchester terror attack".

OPEC, non-OPEC committed to inventory cut
The event is likely to lead to increased production from the USA and eventually skew OPEC's price protections. However, U.S. crude production rose to 9.34 million bpd last week, up almost 500,000 bpd from a year ago.

According to Billboard, Grande performed some of her best hits including: "Be Alright", "Love Me Harder", "The Way", and "Break Free".

The leader of rock band Mumford & Sons then sang Timshel while strumming his guitar.

Grande enlisted some of music's biggest names for the benefit concert, including Justin Bieber, Katy Perry and Liam Gallagher.

Katy Perry said: "Love conquers fear and love conquers hate". He sang and offered encouraging words to the crowd, who held inspirational signs in their hands. "Seeing you guys coming together was a sight to behold, we love you, we are with you, the whole world is watching", he told the crowd.

"Good even Manchester", singer Gary Barlow screamed.

Other performers Sunday include Pharrell Williams, Take That and Marcus Mumford.
