Taking place at the Emirates Old Trafford earlier today, the fundraiser – watched by the 50,000 in attendance and live streamed to millions more across the globe – raised a whopping $9 million (with very penny set to aid the ‘We Love Manchester Emergency Fund’).
As if that wasn’t enough, Grande (ahead of the concert showing) also re-released her 2015 single ‘One Last Time’ to assist the cause. Taking to Twitter yesterday, it was announced:
Shortly after, the tune jetted to #1 on the digital tally – a feat supported by tonight’s live showing. Broadcast across the world, the impact of Grande’s performances was so powerful, the pop princess not only maintained her hold at #1, but also saw other former hits storm the top 20 on UK iTunes.
The song is faring well on U.S. and global iTunes charts as well, hitting the top 10 on both. The real-time U.S. chart is seen below:
