It hasn’t even been a full month since the tragic bombing at Ariana Grande’s concert in Manchester, which resulted in the death of 22 people and injury of 59 others. In the time since, the singer has led the way when it comes to healing our broken hearts with her One Love Manchester concert, as well as by getting a bee tattoo to ensure that’s she’s forever connected to the city (which intends to make her an honorary citizen). But according to Grande’s incredibly touching new message, it’s been her fans who have shown *her* the way.
As the European leg of Grande’s Dangerous Woman tour came to an end in Italy on Saturday, the singer took to Instagram to share a video of her ever-on-point performance along with a note that acknowledged this horrifyingly tragic and uniquely transformative experience.
“At the close of this European leg of my Dangerous Woman tour, I just wanted to thank you properly for the overwhelming love and support you’ve shown me, my crew, and each other during this challenging time.”
The 23-year-old continued, “Spending this time with you this month has been so very healing and special! Thank you for being here. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your generosity in supporting One Love Manchester and for helping the families as much as you possibly could.”
She ended her message by expressing to her fans how grateful she is for their continued love through such an extraordinarily difficult time, saying, “Thank you for bringing your absolute brightest, most passionate, contagious energy to these shows and for wiping my tears away. ♡ I’m immensely grateful!!!! I hope you can feel my love, wherever you are because I’m sending you all that I’ve got. See you so soon. ♡”
We have no doubt that Grande’s fans can feel the love and are sending it right back.
