Ariana Grande To Become Honorary Citizen Of Manchester

The pop star will always find a home in Manchester, England. 

According to The Guardian, Ariana Grande is all set to become an honorary citizen of the city—and the first one, at that!

Head of Manchester's city council, Sir Richard Leese commented on Grande's "noteworthy contributions" to the area. "We've all had cause to be incredibly proud of Manchester and the resilient and compassionate way in which the city, and all those associated with it, have responded to the terrible events of 22 May, with love and courage rather than hatred and fear," Leese stated. "Ariana Grande exemplified this response. I think many people would already consider her an honorary Mancunian and we would be delighted, if the council approves the proposal, to make it official."

After an explosion killed 22 and injured 59 at her Manchester Arena concert, Grande organized a benefit concert, featuring stars like Miley Cyrus and Justin Bieber, to raise funds for victims of the attack. The One Love Manchester concert aired on June 4, 2017, and raised 7 million pounds. What's more, Grande also re-released her 2014 hit "One Last Time" and released a cover of "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" as charity singles, raising additional money for all those affected in Manchester.

Grande, 23, also visited many young victims of the attack in the hospital, spending one-on-one time with them as they recovered from their injuries.

The proposal to give Grande honorary citizenship will be presented before the city council on July 12, according to E! News.
