These Police Officers Danced Their Way Into Everyone's Hearts At One Love Manchester

"Love. Always. Wins."

One Love Manchester, Ariana Grande's benefit concert for the victims of last month's attack, drew an audience of 50,000 people on Sunday. Among the crowd were police officers, many of whom seemed to be enjoying the show just as much as the fans.

In a particularly heartwarming moment, while Justin Bieber was performing on stage, viewers caught a glimpse of one officer in a yellow uniform dancing in a circle with several fans — including three little girls. The image soon went viral, with Twitter users sharing videos, GIFs, and screenshots of the moment.

"This is the moment I broke," wrote BBC reporter Mark Savage.

"Love. Always. Wins," wrote activist Cole Ledford.


But it wasn't just the one officer. Twitter users also shared video of other officers kicking their feet to Coldplay's "Viva La Vida" and swaying to the Black Eyed Peas, who performed their still-relevant anthem "Where Is the Love?"

It was a beautiful showing of joy and resilience in the face of tragedy, and was especially powerful considering the important role Manchester's police played in responding to the attack and keeping people safe at Sunday's event.

Sunday's concert raised millions for Manchester victims and their families, with TMZ now reporting the amount could be as high as $12 million and counting.

The event went on as planned despite another terror attack in London on Saturday night in which seven people were killed. "We must not be afraid, and in tribute to all those affected here and around the world, we will bring our voices together and sing loudly," Grande's manager Scooter Braun wrote on Twitter to announce that the show would go on. "We ask the strong city of Manchester and the world to join us in making the statement that hatred and fear will never win."

And that's just what they did.
