Adam Harrison and Lauren Thorpe, who were injured in the blast, shared photos of their 8-year-old daughter Lily embracing Grande. “All we can do is thank Ariana,” Thorpe said. “What Ariana Grande did tonight was so selfless and amazing… Lily looked on cloud nine,” added Harrison.
Grande has tapped all-star roster of friends and musicians including Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, Coldplay, Pharrell, Usher, Miley Cyrus and Niall Horan for her concert benefiting the victims of the terror attack. The concert will take place June 4 at Manchester’s Old Trafford stadium.
