Every Emotional Moment from the One Love Manchester Benefit Concert

Get your tissues ready.

After such a tragedy like the Manchester bombing, followed by more horrific attacks in London over the weekend, it can be hard to focus on the good in the world. But Ariana Grande and more musical artists tried to spread the love and a bit of light on Sunday, performing for the crowd (and the rest of the world, via live-steam) during the One Love Manchester benefit concert. Each song seemed a little more meaningful, inspirational, and emotional in that moment, and so we’re recapping the event—and including a ton of videos—to help you kick-start your week with something positive.
