Proceeds from the show, which will broadcast live across the globe, will go to an emergency fund set up by the city of Manchester and the British Red Cross. She had so much time for her. Lily was bouncing off the walls.

NEW YORK (AP) - Ariana Grande is scheduled to return to the stage Sunday in Manchester, England, for a concert to raise money for victims of a suicide bombing that struck at the end of her last show almost two weeks ago.

Grande returned to Britain on Friday to comfort young victims who remain hospitalized.

Scheduled to perform are Grande, Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry Coldplay, Pharrell Williams, Take That, Niall Horan, Little Mix, Robbie Williams and The Black Eyed Peas.

Grande, whose recent manchester concert was the site of a terrorist attack, tweeted, "Praying for London".

American singer Ariana Grande has called upon her close friends within the industry to join forces for a tribute concert to honour the victims and families of the tragic attack. So that is what it will continue to do for us.

Peter Mann, whose daughter Jaden was hurt, posted images of the visit on Facebook.

More than 10,000 people applied for free tickets to the concert last week despite not attending the pop star's targeted gig.

One eBay seller was trying to offload four tickets to the gig for £1,250 - which would net a potential profit of almost £1,100.

The concert at the Old Trafford cricket ground will be broadcast by the BBC and livestreamed across several online platforms including Twitter, Apple and YouTube.

"There are two large-scale events taking place in Greater Manchester today and we would like to assure people that these will still take place, but with additional security in place to ensure the safety of everyone".

MTV also announced it would livestream the concert to make it available in 180 countries, encouraging fans around the world to donate and send supportive messages over social media.
