(AllHipHop News) Ariana Grande, other musicians, and the people of the United Kingdom showed their resilience against terrorism by taking part in the One Love Manchester benefit concert.
The event was a response to the tragic attack at Grande’s Manchester show in May.
Deadline reports One Love Manchester averaged 10.9 million viewers on BBC One, making it the U.K.’s most-watched television program of 2017.
Over 22 million people tuned into the show for at least three minutes at some point.
Besides Grande headlining the concert at Old Trafford Cricket Ground, other performers included Pharrell Williams, Mac Miller, Black Eyed Peas, Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry, Robbie Williams, and Liam Gallagher.
Other stars – such as Stevie Wonder, Chance The Rapper, DJ Khaled, Jennifer Hudson, Demi Lovato, Kendall Jenner, and Rita Ora – appeared in video messages during the concert.
