One Love Manchester

After the heart-breaking, unforgettable tragedy that occurred at the Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, the One Love Concert was a symbolic way of the whole world standing together as one against terrorism.

Ariana Grande called on her biggest international friends in music to join her for the unforgettable evening. It was an incredible night, a perfect way of honouring the victims, which touched the hearts of everyone all over the world.

The stunning One Love Manchester Benefit Concert helped raise over £2 million for the We Love Manchester Emergency Fund. With 14 million watching the concert throughout the world, their donations have helped raise the total since the Manchester attacks exceeding £11 million!

Many of our X1 Team members were amongst the benefit concert, where they said, “they have never experienced such a united, heart warming atmosphere.” The concert really was an opportunity for the world to come together and show their strength and unity.

Ariana Grande was praised for her outstanding act of bravery for putting on the benefit gig and returning back to Manchester to visit some of the victims in a local hospital. Since the concert on Sunday, Ariana has gone on to re-release One Last Time, which was the signature song for the Concert as a charity single. All of the proceeds for the single worldwide will also go to the We Love Manchester Emergency Fund.

We stand together.
