On Sunday, June 4th, Disney and ABC Television Group will broadcast the One Love Manchester benefit concert to aid victims and families of the May 22nd Manchester attack. The full concert will air live at 2 p.m. on Freeform, and then ABC will air a one-hour highlight special following the NBA Finals.
The concert will feature performances by Ariana Grande, Justin Bieber, Coldplay, Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, Pharrell Williams, and the Black Eyed Peas. The Manchester School Choir will also perform.
According to Ticketmaster, fans who were at Grande’s show on the night of the attack have been offered free tickets to the benefit show — which sold out in less than half an hour. Proceeds will go to the Red Cross’s We Love Manchester Emergency Fund.
In an open letter via social media, Grande wrote, “Music is meant to heal us, to bring us together, to make us happy. So that is what it will continue to do for us. We will continue in honor of the ones we lost, their loved ones, my fans, and all affected by this tragedy.”
