Ariana Grande is hosting a benefit concert in Manchester, England in lieu of the terrorist attacks that occurred earlier this week.
According to CNN.com, the event will honor and raise money for the victims and their families.
“I want to thank my fellow musicians and friends for reaching out to be part of our expression of love for Manchester,” she said in a letter posted to social media. “I will have details to share with you as soon as everything is confirmed.”
In the days after the attack, Grande’s fans rallied on social media to spread love and support. In an online campaign set up by Grande, $2 million had been raised in support of the victims and their families.
“The compassion, kindness, love, strength and oneness that you’ve shown one another this past week is the exact opposite of the heinous intentions it must take to pull off something as evil as what happened Monday,” she wrote.
Grande did not offer an update on when she intended to resume her “Dangerous Woman Tour,” which was suspended in wake of the attack.
In a statement on Wednesday, Grande’s management announced all dates through June 5 had been canceled.
“We will continue to honor the ones we lost, their loved ones, my fans, and all affected by this tragedy,” she added. “They will be on my mind and in my heart every day and I will think of them with everything I do for the rest of my life.”
