In the aftermath of what can only be described as a horrific terrorist attack on innocent lives, Ariana Grande surprised injured fans at the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital ahead of her fund-raising One Love benefit concert on Sunday.

The star was seen sharing photos on social media of her visit, hugging and talking to the youngsters – many left filled with joy and happiness at an otherwise devastating time.

The suicide bomb attack at her Manchester performance killed 22 people – many of them young children – with a multitude of others suffering serious injuries.

Arriving back in the UK on Friday morning in preparation for her “One Love Manchester” benefit, big names including Justin Bieber, Katy Perry and Miley Cyrus have been confirmed to perform.

Specifically organized by Grande herself to raise money for the victims of the attack, the show will act as a breath of fresh air and respite for those still suffering the consequences of this tragic event.

All proceeds will instantly go to the We Love Manchester Emergency Fund, partnered with Manchester City Council and the British Red Cross.
