The school choir which accompanied Ariana Grande at the One Love Manchester benefit last summer (Jun17) were part of a massive city celebration on Tuesday (22May18).

So far, Ariana has not yet posted anything about the bombing on her popular Instagram account, but perhaps she will by the end of the day.

Fans in the city have come together to commemorate the victims of the brutal attack.

FRIENDS and relatives of the Manchester Arena bomb attack victims paid tribute yesterday on the first anniversary of the terrorist atrocity.

'I love you with all of me and am sending you all of the light and warmth I have to offer on this challenging day'.

Jack also recited words that Ariane Grande said in the aftermath of the tragedy past year.

The cathedral service was shown on a big screen in the city as well as in other cities across Britain, including York, Liverpool and Glasgow.

Manchester holds mass singalong for arena victims on anniversary of attack

Some of the hundreds of those injured in the explosion, and the families of those killed, attended a remembrance service at Manchester Cathedral alongside the Duke of Cambridge and Prime Minister Theresa May. "It will also give thanks to emergency workers who assisted on the ground and in the aftermath of the attack".

A minute's silence took place at 2.30pm and was marked across the country.

Twenty-two concertgoers were killed, and police say more than 800 people were left "with physical and deep psychological injuries".

Andy Burnham, the mayor of Greater Manchester, tweeted: "Today we come together, we remember each of the 22 people whose lives were taken".

On the altar behind him were 22 candles - fashioned from the thousands left behind at the memorial in St Ann's Square a year ago - each representing one of the young victims.

Afterwards, Prince William met privately with some of the bereaved families and left a handwritten message on a Tree of Hope.

Bells will ring out across the city center at 10:31 p.m.to mark the exact moment of the explosion past year.
