Ariana Grande 'raises £2m' for Manchester victims with One Love benefit concert

American artiste, Ariana Grande who is back to Manchester to raise money for families of those who died after a terror attack was carried out at her concert, is set to raise an estimated £2m for victims of the Manchester attack.

It was gathered that Ticketmaster sold tickets to the event, with those who were at the Manchester concert eligible for free tickets. Early figures suggest more than £2m has been raised for the victims. All the artists are performing for free while concert promoter Live Nation has underwritten the cost of the event, Daily Mirror reports

The star-studded concert tagged 'One Love Manchester benefit concert' was organised by Ariana to raise money for those affected by the Manchester terror, where 22 people were killed and more than 100 injured.

The concert tonight will also have more viewers than Live Aid, as it's broadcast to more than 50 countries and will be streamed online.

The gig is on target to beat the 600m who saw Nelson Mandela's 70th birthday tribute concert in 1988.
