On the fourth anniversary of the Manchester attack, Ariana Grande paid tribute to the victims.

In 2017, 22 people were killed after the singer closed her concert in Machester Arena after a bomb was detonated in the foyer of the venue.

Taking to Instagram, the newlywed said that the “anniversary will never be an easy one”.

“Although grief is ever-present and our relationship to it is constantly evolving and expressing itself in different ways every day, year-round,” she said. “I know that this anniversary will never be an easy one. Please know that I am thinking of you today.

“Manchester, my heart is with you today and always.”

Alongside her words was a heart which was made up of bees, which is the symbols of Manchester which represents its industrial history.

The image also stated the names of the 22 victims: “John Atkinson, Courtney Boyle, Philip Tron, Kelly Brewster, Georgina Callander, Olivia Campbell-Hardy, Liam Curry, Chloe Rutherford, Wendy Fawell, Martyn Hett, Alison Howe, Lisa Lees, Megan Hurley, Nell Jones, Michelle Kiss, Angelika Klis, Marcin Klis, Sorrell Leczkowski, Eilidh MacLeod, Elaine McIver, Saffie Rose Roussos, Jane Tweddle.”

Grande’s tribute comes a few days after the Grammy Award-winning singer wed her fiance Dalton Gomez over the weekend in a “tiny and intimate ceremony”.

The couple became engaged in December 2020 after 11 months of dating, having first met in January 2020.
