Joan Grande – who was present at her daughter’s Manchester gig when a suicide bomber 22 people – spent time talking to concert-goers and urged them to not be frightened.

According to eyewitnesses, the US singer’s mother told them ”to be strong and not be afraid”.

The star-studded show featured a host of international musicians who performed in honour of the victims, including Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry, Justin Bieber, Little Mix, Pharrell Williams, Coldplay, Black Eyed Peas and a surprise performance by Liam Gallagher.

One particular stand-out moment was when Ariana,23, joined a children’s choir to sing her song My Everything.

But tears soon started flowing amongst viewers when Ariana took one of the children’s hands who then became incredibly emotional as her idol held her tight.
