New Delhi [India], Jun 3 (ANI): Ariana Grande, whose May 22 concert at Manchester Arena ended in horror, is lending her heart to fans in need. The 23-year-old singer, who has flown back to Manchester ahead of her benefit gig, surprised kids recovering from their injuries by making an impromptu visit to the Royal Manchester Children's Hospital.
Peter Mann, whose daughter Jaden had to have two operations after shrapnel fractured both her legs, shared photos of the 'Side to Side' hit-maker visiting his 10-year-old daughter in hospital. "This means more to us than all the amazing things people have done this week. When your daughter asks after her 2nd operation: 'Is Ariana OK?' So happy she came I could burst! Never seen Jaden so happy! Even cried again myself." Jaden gushed on Twitter alongside a photo of Grande kissing her on the forehead, "I got to meet my queen today."
Evie Mills, a 14-year-old girl from Harrogate, who recently made headlines for her meeting with Queen Elizabeth II, was also visited by Grande.
Today was one of the toughest days I have ever witnessed. @arianagrande you were a rock for so many in need. Thank you to all who helped us and to the amazing children and their families we met and the families of those lost we sat with. Your courage has changed us all forever. #westandwithmanchester
Concertgoers as young as 8 years old were killed on May 22 after a suicide bombing near the ticket office outside Manchester Arena. The attack prompted Grande to pen a powerful essay announcing the 'One Love Manchester' gig, which will include performances from Coldplay, Pharrell Williams, Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry, Niall Horan, Little Mix, and Robbie Williams.
