Ariana Grande will host a Manchester benefit concert Sunday to raise money for the victims of the terrorist attack, which killed 22 people at the end of her tour concert at Manchester Arena earlier this month.

The One Love Manchester concert at the Old Trafford Cricket Grounds will also feature a score of other top entertainers, including Justin Bieber, Coldplay, Katy Perry, Take That, Miley Cyrus, and Pharrell Williams, according to the BBC News.

Tickets will go on sale Thursday and Grande is offering free tickets to those who attended the Manchester Arena show. The pop singer posted a photo promoting the concert on her Facebook page Tuesday.

"Music is something everyone on Earth can share," said Grande in a statement on her Facebook page Friday. "Music is meant to heal us, to bring us together and make us happy. So that is what it will continue to do for us. We will continue in honor of the ones we lost, their loved ones, my fans and all affected by this tragedy."

"They will be on my mind and in my heart every day and I will think of them with everything I do for the rest of my life," she continued.

Grande, 23, had suspended her Dangerous Woman tour after the attack, but later said that she would return to Manchester.

Authorities say suspected suicide bomber Salman Abedi detonated the blast at Manchester Arena as Grande's concert was ending May 22, blowing himself up in the process, reported The Guardian. Authorities released new photos of Abedi with a blue suitcase in the Arena area days before the blast.

"This remains a live investigation and if you have any images or footage you believe can assist us then please upload them to UKpoliceimageappeal.co.uk or UKpoliceimageappeal.com as soon as you can," Greater Manchester Police Detective Chief Superintendent Russ Jackson said in a statement.
