Ariana Grande breaks silence on Manchester attack: "We won't let hate win"


The Islamic State has claimed responsibility, though British authorities have not determined whether he was truly associated with them or received any assistance while building his bomb or plotting his crime.

The 23-year-old, who suspended her tour and returned to her Florida home after the tragedy, said she planned a concert as "an expression of love for Manchester".

The performance will honor and raise money for the victims and their families, she said in a letter to her fans.

The dates of the concert have not yet been set.

"So that is what it will continue to do for us", she said. "We won't let hate win", she wrote.
