Ariana Grande’s mother was present during the terrorist attack at her daughter’s show in Manchester last week. On the Monday following the horrifying incident that claimed 22 lives, she thanked those who put themselves in danger to save lives.

“This past week I have spent in reflective thought, prayer & deep sorrow,” Grande began. “I join my daughter in extending my help & services to all those affected by the diabolical act of terror which occurred in Manchester!”

Joan Grande was on her way to see her daughter backstage following the concert when the bomb rang out. Grande immediately gathered about 10 young fans around her and led them backstage to safety herself. On Memorial Day she took a moment to thank the men and women who protected her daughter’s fans that night, as well as those who serve and protect our freedoms everyday.

“My heart goes out to all the victims: those who lost their lives, those injured, those recovering & all survivors of that night, along with the families & friends whose grief knows no bounds. I stand with you all in the face of evil & we stand to never let it rule our lives!”

“Thank you to all those who helped in any way that night in Manchester,” Grande continued. “I continually thank those who are & were in service protecting our freedoms every day all over the world!”

Twenty-tw0 fans were killed and over 60 were injured at the hands of one suicide bomber last week. Ariana Grande just announced that she will be holding a benefit concert in Manchester this Sunday for the victims and families affected by last week’s attack.
