Ariana Grande is expected to raise more than £2 million with her One Love benefit concert.

The concert was organised by Ariana, with all the money going towards victims of a suicide bombing that occurred at the end of her show on May 22. The attack killed 22 people and left more than 100 people injured.

The event was pulled together in just over a week, featuring performances from Justin Bieber, The Black Eyed Peas, Coldplay, Miley Cyrus, Niall Horan, Little Mix, Katy Perry, Take That, Imogen Heap, Pharrell Williams, Robbie Williams, Victoria Monét, Marcus Mumford, and Liam Gallagher.

All of the artists agreed to perform for free and Live Nation underwrote the costs for the event.

A statement released on behalf of the singer revealed there had been a huge influx of donations during the concert’s three hour duration from the UK alone.

There were approximately 50,000 fans at the venue of the Old Trafford cricket ground.

However, as the concert is being broadcasted around the world and streamed online, it means that donations are estimated to be around £2 million mark, if not more.
