Grande to be Manchester honorary citizen

ariana grande britan

Ariana Grande is to become an honorary citizen of Manchester after organising a concert to raise funds for victims of the terror attack in the city.

Councillors are expected to meet on Wednesday to agree to the distinction after the pop singer's involvement in the hastily put-together One Love benefit concert.

Twenty-two people, including seven children, died when suicide bomber Salman Abedi detonated a device as concert-goers began leaving a show by the US singer at Manchester Arena on May 22.

The 23-year-old is to be recognised for her efforts in organising the charity concert at Emirates Old Trafford cricket ground, which featured Coldplay, Justin Bieber, and Katy Perry.
