Ariana Grande Responds With Heartache Following An Attack At Her Manchester Concert

The singer was unharmed.

Ariana Grande has responded to an apparent suicide bombing that killed 22 people and wounded 59 others at her concert in Manchester, England, on Monday.

Grande's reps confirmed that the singer was safe following the explosion. Later Monday night, Grande took to Twitter to share her reaction to the attack. She wrote that she was "broken," adding, "From the bottom of my heart, I am so so sorry. I don't have words."

Fans and fellow celebrities were quick to offer their support to the singer. Many stars had also tweeted their thoughts and love as earlier reports of the incident were released.

Grande's manager Scooter Braun, meanwhile, shared a longer statement on Twitter. "Tonight, our hearts are broken," it reads. "Words cannot express our sorrow for the victims and families harmed in this senseless attack."

"We mourn the lives of the children and loved ones taken by this cowardly act," the statement continues. "We are thankful for the selfless service tonight of Manchester's first responders who rushed toward danger to help save lives. We ask all of you to hold the victims, their families, and all those affected in your hearts and prayers."

Following the attack, concertgoers and Manchester residents used social media to reunite with loved ones and offer places to stay for the night.

Grande was scheduled to perform in London on Thursday, and then further around Europe, but she has reportedly suspended the tour indefinitely.
