Ariana Grande has issued an official statement in regards to the 22 people killed by a suicide bomber after her concert at Manchester Arena on May 22. The singer shared she will be returning to Manchester for a benefit concert to help the victims and their loved ones.

Grande took to Twitter on Friday to share a deeply emotional message to her millions of fans. “My heart, prayers, and deepest condolences are with the victims of the Manchester Attack and their loved ones. There is nothing I or anyone can do to take away the pain you are feeling or to make this better,” she began. “However, I extend my hand and heart and everything I possibly can give to you and yours, should you want or need my help in any way.”

The “Dangerous Woman” singer went on to confirm an upcoming benefit concert in England. Although specific details are currently unknown, Variety hears that the event is slated for June 4, that Grande, along with manager Scooter Braun, are personally recruiting other artists to take the stage, and that 100% of the proceeds will go to the victims’ families.

“I’ll be returning to the incredibly brave city of Manchester to spend time with my fans and to have a benefit concert in honor of and to raise money for the victims and their families,” Grande wrote. “I will have details to share with you as soon as everything is confirmed.”
