Marcus Mumford holds minute's silence at One Love Manchester

And it turned into a thoughtful party.

Ariana Grande is scheduled to take the stage again Sunday in Manchester, England, for a star-studded benefit concert to help victims of a suicide bombing that struck her last concert and killed 22 people.

British singer Marcus Mumford held a moment of silence before performing at the Manchester benefit concert Sunday. The youngest victim was 8.

"I don't see or hear or smell any fear in this building", said Williams, who performed his hit "Happy" with Miley Cyrus. The Geals were in the audience during Grande's performance in Manchester Arena last month.

Revellers dressed for the occasion, with many wearing tops featuring a bee - a symbol for Manchester - and slogans expressing their love for the city. There was beer and ice cream in ample supply and stalls selling T-shirts and other band paraphernalia.

Gallagher and Take That hail from Manchester.

Grande bounced around the stage and never appeared to stand still for very long.

"She says that she's a good role model for so many of you girls out there and I think she's proved that by putting this together and allowing all of us to be a part of it".

The event will see the U.S. popstar return to the stage for the first time since suicide bomber Salman Abedi detonated a device, killing 22 of her fans and parents as they left her show at the Manchester Arena.

Taking to the stage for the first time since the attacks, Grande said: "I want to thank you all from the bottom of my heart for being here". "Manchester looked fear right in the face and said". We've got to be there for everyone in Manchester. "Manchester, your bravery is our hope". She even collaborated with others onstage: She sang Fergie's verse on the Black Eyed Peas hit, "Where Is the Love?" along with the group; she performed a duet with Cyrus; and she sang her debut song, "The Way", with rapper Mac Miller.

"We were there in Manchester (arena) as well, I was hit".

The BBC, Twitter, Apple, YouTube and MTV streamed the concert live, making it available to viewers in 180 countries.

Seven people were killed and 48 were injured in that attack. "Let no one take that away from you", she said.

The idea for the concert was Grande's, according to Melvin Benn, a music festival organizer. "But because of you we can now represent through this as a worldwide community that we will be ready, we will be fearless we will be great and we will honor our children". Grande and her fans are looking forward to better days. She also acknowledged that they had an entirely different show planned but changed much of it the previous day after her meeting with the mother of slain 15-year-old victim, Olivia Campbell.

Back on stage Sunday, Grande seemed heartened by the huge turnout.

"Thanks for being so strong", she told the audience.
