Ariana Grande Is Made First Honorary Citizen Of Manchester | Music News
Following a unanimous vote by Manchester City Council last week, Ariana Grande has become Manchester’s first honorary citizen. This, of course, is a response to the overwhelming amount of support shown by Grande following the attack at the singer’s concert on May 22.
Grande took the time to visit injured fans in Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital and, only thirteen days after the attack, One Love Manchester was due to take place which raised millions to help those affected by the disaster.
Council leader Sir Richard Leese praised Grande during the deciding session by saying that “she — as an artist, a performer — was determined that she would not perform again until she had returned to Manchester to perform. In doing so, she brought comfort to thousands, she raised millions for the We Love Manchester Emergency Fund and became the first patron of that fund. And that’s why I propose that Ariana Grande is made the first honorary citizen of the city of Manchester”.
The title is well-deserved, and I’m sure that Grande will be extremely grateful for this honour.
