One Love Manchester - one month on

One Love Manchester - one month on

Published at 2:57pm 7th July 2017. (Updated at 4:01pm 7th July 2017)

We almost can’t believe it. One Love Manchester was more than a month ago.

Back in June, the nation came together with top musicians for an evening to remember. Everyone from Ariana Grande to Liam Gallagher, Justin Bieber to Niall Horan came to the stage to show their support.

It was all in support of the victims of the Manchester Arena attack in May.

It was a night of high emotion, but also a great sense of hope.

We’ve narrowed down the night into our top 12 most memorable moments.

#1 Black Eyed Peas

Black Eyed Peas have been more than a bit quiet recently, but when they come back, they do it with style.

They sung their debut 2003 hit, “Where is the love?” with Ariana Grande filling in for Fergie.

If there was a song that summed up the night, it’d have to be this one – just as relevant today as it’s ever been.

So where is the love? Answer: here at One Love Manchester.

#2 No Fear

Ariana posted this from her Intagram the following day.

It shows fans coming together and enjoying the night; one girl at the front holds up a sign reading “No Fear”.

Why does this picture make our second favourite moment of the concert? The photo looks like both a political rally and a festival at the same time – we think it sums up the concert perfectly.

#3 More than just a show

One Love Manchester was more than just a night of great music and celebrity PR.

Here’s some snaps of Ariana Grande visiting the children’s hospital in Manchester to see the survivors of the attack.

Jaden Farrell Man, tweeting her experience here, still uses a wheelchair following her experience of that night.

i love you

#4 Unlikely unions

It wasn’t just the fans coming together for One Love Manchester, famous artists and celebrities came to show their support too.

This resulted in some unlikely unions!

Sporting an “I [heart] MCR” t shirt, here’s Miley Cyrus sat on stage next to Grande wearing the branded “One Love Manchester” jumper.

You can see loads more photos by following the artists on Instagram.

Even backstage, there were some surprising shots of Katy Perry and Niall Horan taking a One Love selfie.

Could Niall be out new favourite ex-One Directioner?

#5 More unlikely unions

It wasn’t just the audience, the millions watching at home, or even the celebrities themselves…

One of the most famous and heart-warming moments of One Love Manchester was when PC Paul Taylor was filmed dancing “ring-o-roses” with other show-goers.

The policeman, arm in arm with show goers, was caught dancing in a circle while Justin Bieber was on stage…

#6 Full credit to the security

It’s not even all about the policemen at the event, show-goers also tweeted videos of security guards dancing to the music in the stands.

Looks like Ariana Grande made a lot of friends that night!

#7 Manchester City

“We [heart] MCR” appeared in some unlikely places around the city in the build up to the concert, and on the night.

Here’s a tweet from @Saadia_Choudry in Manchester, showing local buses in support of the concert.

That certainly makes a change from the regular “Number 11 to Darlington Cross”!

#8 That crowd can sing!

One Love Manchester really was about the people, and during Coldplay’s set of Oasis’ “Don’t Look Back in Anger”, it was all about the audience.

Possibly the most people singing live to a Chris Martin - Ariana Grande duet in history, it had to make our top highlights.

Here you can see the audience singing along with the artists. “Don’t Look Back in Anger” even rose to ninth in the charts!

#9 I’m loving Angels instead

Many of the 50,000 strong audience held up signs such as “Pray for Manchester” and “For Our Angels”.

No surprise, when Robbie Williams took to the stage for his 90s hit, Angels, we all knew the words.

The song's lyrics include “I feel that love is dead, I’m loving angels instead” and “I know that life won’t break me”.

Powerful stuff…

Manchester we're strong #OneLoveManchester

 #10 “Over the Rainbow” gave us goosebumps

Originally, “Over the Rainbow” was written for the Wizard of Oz, Grande sung it as the final song at One Love Manchester, and what a version!

At several points Ariana struggled to complete the verse and broke off… Lighters at the ready, this was the moment that gave us all goosebumps.

Here’s a tweet from @butera_ave in the audience.

#11 The show goes on

Here’s something you may have missed with all the razzle-dazzle of the live performances.

Higher Openshaw Primary School in Manchester tweeted their pupils singing Ariana Grande in their school assembly a few days later.

It says “When the morning assembly becomes a sing-a-long you just have to go with it” and shows the students swaying and singing Grande’s “One Last Time”, the unofficial hit song of the concert.

It includes lyrics like “all I care is that you end up back in my arms” and “I’ve got nothing here without you”.

#12 Let the love continue…

Support for recent terrorist attack victims didn’t stop with Manchester. Since One Love, we’ve also seen the charity single, Bridge Over Troubled Water for Grenfell, in support of the Grenfell Tower victims.

It’s been streamed over 5 million times on Youtube and almost 3 million times on Spotify.

The song has been put together by One Love Artists as well as Rita Ora, Emeli Sandé, Louisa Johnson and Stormzy.
