Highlights From 'One Love Benefit concert for Manchester'

 

Monday morning New Zealand time saw one of the best shows around the world. Ariana Grande, the US singer whose Manchester Arena concert was targeted during last week's terrorist attack, played a televised concert to honour the victims.The all-star benefit gig saw some of the biggest names in music assemble alongside the 23-year-old pop star, including Katy Perry, Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus and so many more.

 

They did this to help raise funds for those who were injured and the relatives of those who died in the attack.

 

The whole show was amazing but we have compiled a few of the best moments for you.

 

Justin Bieber's Heartfelt Message

 

Before "Love Yourself," Bieber addressed the crowd in a call and response testifying to the uniting power of love, even in the face of terror; a powerful message, coming days after another terror attack in London:

 

"What an amazing thing we're doing tonight, would you not agree? Would you agree that love always wins? What a better way to fight evil, with evil, than to fight evil with good".

 

"It's an honor for me to be here."

 

Beautiful moment tearful choir performs with Ariana Grande

 

The Parrs Wood High School Choir joined the Ariana for a performance of the title track from her second album.

 

One of the choir members started the song before Grande joined them. While singing Ariana took the child’s hand, and the latter was then seen becoming incredibly emotional as her idol held her tight. It had viewers in tears, as well as the gathered audience.

 

Ariana and Miley Belted out a New Zealand classic


The longtime friends dueted on NZ's own Crowded House classic, 'Don't Dream It's Over'. It was not only amazing but very moving. Plus the whole crowd joined in to make it that much more special.

 

Miley even taking to twitter to show love to her girl.
