Singer Ariana Grande has paid tributes to the victims of the Manchester attack on the first anniversary of the blast. The attack on May 22 last year claimed 22 lives after a suicide bomber detonated a shrapnel bomb as fans came out of Grande’s concert at Manchester Arena.

The 24-year-old singer took to social media to send her love and warmth to the people in London through a series of tweets.

“Thinking of you all today and every day. I love you with all of me and am sending you all of the light and warmth I have to offer on this challenging day,” she wrote along with a worker bee emoticon which is widely used to represent the city as a symbol of industry.

Grande also shared a video of young fans in Manchester singing her latest single, No Tears Left To Cry.

She captioned the video: “So wish I were there with you all today. You have no idea. Love you so very much”.

“I miss you guys a lot and just wanna hug you all so tight today,” the singer wrote in another tweet.

Grande recently opened up about the terror attack outside her concert premises, saying the memories of the incident are still fresh.
