Ariana Grande played a star-studded benefit concert in Manchester, U.K. on Sunday night to raise money for the victims of the terrorist attack at her concert in the city in May. The British Red Cross has confirmed that the show, which featured performances from Coldplay, Justin Bieber, and more, has helped raise at least $3M.
Prior to the show starting, the organization announced on Twitter that its Manchester Emergency Funded had made $9 million (7.3 million pounds). This combined with the amount made during the live concert brings the total raised to more than $12 million (about 9.6 million pounds).
The fund "will help alleviate immediate suffering and ensure victims and their families do not face short-term financial difficulties," the British Red Cross explained in a separate tweet.
Other artists on the bill for the Manchester concert included Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, Black Eyed Peas, Mac Miller, Liam Gallagher, Take That, Robbie Williams, Little Mix, and Niall Horan.
