Ariana Grande has paid tribute to the 22 victims of the Manchester Arena attack which happened one year ago today, May 22, 2017.
Taking to Twitter, the One Last Time singer tweeted how she was thinking of ‘you all’ today before saying she was sending ‘all of the light and warmth’ on this challenging day.
Ariana’s tribute comes ahead of a number of services due to take place in Manchester today, which will mark the first anniversary of the fatal attack.

Relatives of those who died in the attack will attend a service at Manchester Cathedral and will be joined by the Duke of Cambridge, Prince William, as well as the Prime Minister, Theresa May.
A national one-minute silence will be held at 2.30pm to pay tribute to the 22 people who died, while a public event will be held in St Albert’s Square this evening to give people the chance to come together again and stand in solidarity.
ITV reports the event will be supported by choirs from across the North West and will include a selection of songs which ‘evoke pride and solidarity’.
Following the St Albert’s Square event, song lyrics will be projected onto the pavements and buildings of St Ann’s Square, where the largest of the bombing tributes sprung up last year.
The projections will run for five nights and it’s hoped the area will serve as a space for reflection, as well as somewhere to pay respects to those who died.
