Ariana Grande Is About to Become an Honorary Citizen of Manchester

The singer is set to be recognised for organising the One Love Manchester concert, held on June 4, which raised more than £3m for the victims of the terror attack at her concert in the city on May 22.

The charity concert received amazing reviews, and so the city decided to change the rules to allow the singer, who’s a U.S. citizen to receive honorary citizenship.

Sir Richard Leese, city council leader, said he was “incredibly proud of the way the city responded to the terrible events of 22 May — with love and courage rather than hatred and fear,” as BBC reports. Grande “exemplified the response” with her actions after the tragedy.
