An estimated 50,000 people joined Ariana Grande, the Black Eyed Peas, Miley Cyrus and more of the world's biggest musical superstars for an emotional but ultimately spirited and uplifting concert here Sunday to raise money for the victims and families of the Manchester suicide bomb attack that took place less than two weeks ago.

She later came back to the stage for a moving performance of Somewhere Over The Rainbow, which saw her burst into tears mid-song.

Ariana Grande and Miley Cyrus perform the Crowded House hit in Manchester.

In addition to the 22 individuals killed, 100 people injured when a suicide bomber detonated his device in the foyer of the Manchester Arena at the end of the May 22 concert.

Grande surprised young fans injured in last month's attack with a visit to the Royal Manchester Children's Hospital on Friday.

Ariana and her manager Scooter Braun began planning the One Love gig just days after the attack on her Manchester gig, and her fellow musicians were full of praise for how she handled the tragedy. The One Direction singer was one of the first acts confirmed to be taking part in the concert, and was in complete awe of the crowd and everyone who rallied together to show love.

"I want to take this moment to honour the people that were lost", Bieber can be heard saying.

Take That, who are from Manchester, followed Mumford with fun energy that the crowd danced to.

Warriors beat Cavs to take 2-0 Finals series lead
It portends what this series will become if the Cavs can't get more than two guys to play well simultaneously. Durant had 33 points, 13 rebounds , and played fantastic defense on LeBron James for much of the night.

"What an incredible thing we're doing tonight, would you agree", Bieber said.

Richardson says Grande is "very fearless to come back so soon". That's when Cyrus' voice popped over the speakers - from the wrong side of the stage - letting the audience know she was the secret singer in question. "All we feel here tonight is love, resilience, positivity", Williams said.

"I love you so so much".

As of late Sunday morning none of the other performers had tweeted in response to the London attack. The leader of rock band Mumford & Sons sang "Timshel", which includes the lyrics: "But you are not alone in this, and you are not alone in this, as brothers we will stand and we'll hold your hand".

Stacie Richardson and James Bend, both 19, say there were shaken after the May 22 attack at Manchester Arena.

Some fans questioned whether Sunday's show would go on after three men drove a van into a crowd on a London bridge Saturday night before leaping out and stabbing numerous people in nearby bars and restaurants. Proceeds from the concert will go to the Red Cross' We Love Manchester emergency fund.

"As singers you sing all the time, so even when something like this happens you want to express your emotions through song".

The fitting single, which was the best-selling song of 2003, was written by the popular group after the September 11 bombings in NY, and portrays issues surrounding terrorism and discrimination.
