AceShowbiz - Ariana Grande has shared on Twitter a lengthy, heartfelt letter to her fans following terror attack at her Manchester gig. She offers her "deepest condolences" and announces that she will return to "the incredibly brave city" to hold a benefit concert to help the victims and their families. "My heart, prayers and deepest condolences are with the victims of the Machester Attack and their loved ones," she begins.
"There is nothing I or anyone can do to take away the pain you are feeling or to make this better," the "Side to Side" singer continues. "However, I extend my hand and heart and everything I possibly can give to you and yours, should you want or need my help in any way."
She also shares a powerful message that she "won't let hate win," writing, "I am sorry for the pain and fear that you must be feeling and for the trauma that you, too, must be experiencing. We will never be able to understand why events like this take place because it is not in our nature, which is why we shouldn't recoil. We will not quit or operate in fear. We won't let this divide us. We won't let hate win."
Although she doesn't have any details at the moment, Ariana promises that she will return to Manchester soon to host a concert, presumably with her fellow musicians, to raise money for the victims. "I'll be returning to the incredibly brave city of Manchester to spend time with my fans and to have a benefit concert in honor of and to raise money for the victims and their families. I will have details to share with you as soon as everything is confirmed," she writes.
Shortly after tweeting the emotional letter, she shared a link to a local fundraiser established by the Manchester Evening News. The effort has since raised more than 1.7 million pound sterling.
