Ariana Grande to Play Manchester Charity Concert Sunday for Bomb Victims

Ariana Grande and several other stars including Justin Bieber, Coldplay and Katy Perry will perform in Manchester for a charity concert on Sunday for bomb victims, according to the singer's publicist.

The "One Love Manchester" show will be held at the city's Old Trafford cricket ground just under two weeks after a bomber killed 22 people at a Grande concert in Manchester.

Grande had suspended her world tour through June 5 following the bombing. She wrote in a long statement posted to Twitter earlier that details were still being finalized and she will "have details to share ... as soon as everything is confirmed."

"Our response to this violence must be to come closer together, to help each other, to love more, to sing louder and to live more kindly and more generously than we did before," she said.

Proceeds will go to an emergency fund set up by the city of Manchester and the British Red Cross.

Others performers will include Take That, One Direction's Niall Horan, Miley Cyrus, Usher and Pharrell.
