Just a few days after her sentiment, it appears that the singer has now found her strength, and is stepping up in a big way to support those who need it the most.
According to the Daily Mail, an account dedicated to the pop superstar claims that the devastated singer has pledged to help the families of the 22 people who lost their lives in the bombing of Manchester Arena following her concert.
The site, Ariana Updates!, posted:
The Daily Mail also reports that Ariana Updates! shared a story regarding Grande’s mother, Joan, who assited in the rescue of those from the venue on that horrific night.
Grande’s mother Joan immediately escorted terrified fans to safety backstage after the explosion was first heard.
Joan had still been sitting in her seat on the front row when the bomb detonated in the venue’s lobby after the show – and was quick to come to the aid of surrounding fans.
Fellow concert-goers reveal Joan had called as many as 10 children to follow her backstage, leading them to safety seconds after the attack that has killed 22 and left 119 injured.
The site reports that Joan had been preparing to visit her daughter backstage and congratulate her on another tour performance, when the suicide bomber targeted the sell-out concert.
Eye-witnesses state Joan, flanked by Ariana’s security team, had then escorted a large group of fans sat close the stage out of the concert hall and into to the dressing rooms.
The singer’s mother reportedly comforted the panicked youngsters there until they were safely evacuated by police, who arrived on the scene soon after.
If the reports are true, Grande is showing true leadership and compassion to help alleviate what was a truly evil attack on the women and children.
