Manchester Ariana Grande visits injured fans in hospital

Pop star Ariana Grande has visited young fans injured in the Manchester terror attack in hospital.
The singer was photographed by family members hugging youngsters in a ward at the Royal Manchester children’s hospital – a visit that left one father in tears.
Grande’s all-star benefit concert will take place tomorrow, less than two weeks after a suicide bombing at her gig at the Manchester Arena killed 22 people and injured scores more.
Peter Mann, whose daughter Jaden was injured in the attack, posted several photos of Grande and the youngster on Facebook.
He wrote, “This means more to us than all the amazing things people have done this week. When your daughter asks after her second operation: ‘Is Ariana OK?’
“So happy she came I could burst! Never seen Jaden so happy! Even cried again myself.”
Grande arrived back in the UK yesterday morning for Sunday’s benefit concert, which will be broadcast live to Portsmouth, on the Big Screen in Guildhall Square from 6pm.
Musicians including Pharrell Williams. Take That Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, Coldplay and Miley Cyrus will join her for the One Love Manchester concert on Sunday, which is raising funds for victims and their families.
The singer was photographed with nurses at the hospital and dozens of other patients including 14-year-old Evie Mills, who was visited by the Queen in the same hospital days after the attack.
Tasha Hough, who shared photos of Jaden on social media, said, “I think she’s a little star struck. No-one deserves this more than her. That smile! And what a lovely girl Ariana Grande is.”
