Children were among 22 people killed in a suicide bombing at a pop concert in the British city of Manchester, the country's deadliest terror attack in 12 years.

Joseph Carozza, a representative from Grande's US record label, said the singer is OK and they are investigating what happened.

Brown posted on Facebook, next to a picture of her smiling face.
