Yesterday, Grande posted the details for One Live Manchester, a concert being held on Sunday, June 4, with proceeds going to the 22 victims' families and dozens injured in the terrorist attack at her concert at Manchester Arena in England. In light of the tragedy, Grande has hired top security for the event.

“Ariana’s new security team consists of ex-military and is said to be the best in the business,” a source close to Grande exclusively revealed to Radar. “She is going to have 24-hour surveillance from now on, no matter what the cost is.”

The benefit will also feature Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry, Justin Bieber, Coldplay, and Pharrell Williams. “This concert is just the beginning and she is planning to get incredibly involved in the fight for peace and to stop terrorism,” the source said. “This experience has changed her to the core and she is just so happy that her celebrity friends are joining her in Manchester.”

Following the attack, Grande said in a statement posted to Instagram: "We will not quit or operate in fear. We won't let this divide us. We won't let hate win."

All proceeds of the concert are going to the “We Love Manchester Emergency Fund” set up by the Manchester City Council in partnership with the British Red Cross.
