The ‘No Tears Left To Cry’ singer tweeted today:

Thinking of you all today and every day. 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.”

She also included the bumblebee emoji as a tribute to the city.

Grande staged the One Love concert in Manchester less than two weeks after the attack. In a recent interview with Time Magazine, Grande said she called her manager Scooter Braun and said: “If I don’t do something, these people died in vain.”

There are so many people who have suffered such loss and pain. The processing part is going to take forever.”

On the attack itself, she’s reluctant to speak publicly about it.

“I don’t want to give it that much power,” she said, “Something so negative. It’s the absolute worst of humanity. That’s why I did my best to react the way I did. The last thing I would ever want is for my fans to see something like that happen and think it won.

Music is supposed to be the safest thing in the world. I think that’s why it’s still so heavy on my heart every single day.
You think with time it’ll become easier to talk about. Or you’ll make peace with it. But every day I wait for that peace to come and it’s still very painful.”
