Pop star Ariana Grande apparently isn’t like other celebrities we often hear about, as was evidenced by a stunning move she made the day after her show was attacked by a homicide bomber in Manchester, Great Britain.
While on her “Dangerous Woman” tour, Grande found her show the target of radical Islam as a 22-year-old extremist, whose name we’re not going to publish any longer, detonated an explosive device inside the venue she performed at. But while most celebrities merely tweet out their prayers and condolences, Grande appears to be taking a much more proactive approach to comforting the innocent victims of the attack – she wants to help them out financially.
In fact, the Daily Mail is reporting that she’s offered to pay the funeral costs of all 22 victims of the attack.
Pretty cool, right?
Check it out:
An account dedicated to the pop superstar claims that the devastated singer has pledged to help the families of the 22 people who lost their lives in the bombing of Manchester Arena following her concert.
The site, called Ariana Updates!, shared a post saying: ‘News on Ariana: Ariana has reached out to the families who’s loves ones died last night….she is gonna pay for the funerals!’
While paying for the funerals isn’t going to bring back the families’ loved ones, it is a gesture of kindness and compassion that’s much needed after such a devastating event.
Normally we wouldn’t bother reporting something like this, but in such seemingly dark times, it’s always nice to hear a feel-good story every once and a while. So kudos to Ariana for stepping up and helping at a time when these families feel as if they’ve lost everything.
