Less than a fortnight after the terror attack at her concert in Manchester, singer Ariana Grande performed at a benefit show in the city. Many American and British pop musicians – Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, Coldplay, Miley Cyrus, Marcus Mumford, Take That, Robbie Williams, the Black Eyed Peas, Pharrell Williams, Imogen Heap, Liam Gallagher, Niall Horan, and Little Mix – showed up in solidarity, to inspire hope and resilience through music.

Before the show, on Friday night, Robbie Williams performed his signature song, Angels, at a stadium concert. The former Take That member broke down while singing the song, but the crowd of nearly 50,000 people joined in to help him finish the number. Solidarity, indeed.
