Ariana Grande gathered enough strength to return to Manchester, where she performed with the industry's biggest artists at the benefit gig One Love Manchester, a couple of weeks after her show turned tragic because of a terror attack.

The concert, which had around 50,000 attendees and 14 million viewers, was held in remembrance of the May 22 victims. 

"I want to thank you for coming together and being so loving and strong and unified," she was quoted by BBC. "I love you guys so much, and I think that the kind of love and unity that you're displaying is the medicine that the world really needs right now."

Other than the £2m raised for the casualties and those who survived them, a bunch of powerful numbers underscored the call for unity and healing in the aftermath of the senseless tragedy. Here are some of the well-received acts that night:


Black Eyed Peas & Ariana Grande - 'Where Is The Love?'

With the 23-year-old filling in for Fergie, the hip-hop quartet took everyone back in time with their smash hit that alludes to global unrest.


Miley Cyrus & Ariana Grande - 'Don't Dream It's Over'

The real-life Disney princesses led the packed crowd in singing along to their heartfelt duet of Crowded House's 1986 ballad.

Chris Martin & Ariana Grande - 'Don't Look Back In Anger'

Taking cues from a UK mob, Ariana, Chris, and Coldplay guitarist Jonny Buckland blew concertgoers' minds  away with a rock ballad that has turned into Manchester's anthem for defying adversity.


Liam Gallagher & Coldplay - 'Live Forever'

What would be a Manchester gathering without one of its musical pillars at the forefront of the peaceful demonstration.


Ariana Grande - 'One Last Time'

The pop princess was a vision, successfully expressing her support and gratitude to all those who stood by the disaster-stricken city.
