“We also want to thank the Manchester first responders and all the bystanders [from her Manchester concert] who are here tonight,” he added. “Who risked their lives to save others. Please give a round of applause to them.”

“Last night this nation was challenged and all of you were challenged and had a decision to make if you were going to come out here tonight and this is so beautiful,” he continued. “You guys made that decision. You looked fear right in the face and said, ‘No we are Manchester’ and the world was watching.”

“Manchester your bravery is our hope,” the producer told the crowd. “Your joining us here today with so many watching around the world sends that message…that [those killed at the Manchester Bombing] will never be victims.”

“Unfortunately, we saw yesterday that evil will test us, will show its face again,” he added. “But because of you we can now represent as a worldwide community that we will be ready. We will be fearless, we will be great, and we will honor our children.”

“The children of Manchester and all those children around the world,” he continued. “And I want to thank you again for coming out tonight. Hatred will never win, fear will never divide us, cause on this day we all stood with Manchester.”

According to the British Red Cross more than $12 million was raised for the victims and the families of the Manchester Arena bombing.

“We’ve raised an incredible £2.35 MILLION during #OneLoveManchester! Thank you so much for your donations. http://redcross.org.uk/love,” the British Red Cross tweeted Sunday.

“We’ve now reached £7.3 MILLION for the #Manchester Emergency Fund! Let’s raise more during #OneLoveManchester,” the organization tweeted before the event.
