When the special came to the One Love concert in Manchester, it repeated its performance of "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" from the tribute show – Grande shared a screen saver in the document rather than tell. Here's what it reads in full length:
Eight months have passed since the attack on our Manchester Arena show. It is impossible to know where to start or what to say to this part. May 22, 2017 will leave me speechless and full of questions for the rest of my life.
Music is an escape. Music is the safest thing I have ever seen. Music – pop music, Stan Culture – brings people together, introduces them to some of their best friends and makes them feel like they are themselves. It is comfort. It is fun. It is expression. It is luck. It's the last thing that could harm anyone. It is save.
If there is something so contrary and toxic in your world that should be everything, but that … it is shocking and heartbreaking in a way that makes it impossible to fully recover. The people of Manchester, the families who are struck by this terrible tragedy, and my fans around the world have all had a lasting impact on us for the rest of our lives. Their love, strength and unity showed me, my team, my dancers, the band and the entire crew, so as not to be defeated. To go on during the scariest and saddest times. Hatred does not win. Instead, love as loud as possible and appreciate every moment.
The people of Manchester were able to turn an event that represents the worst of humanity into an event that was the most beautiful of humanity. "Like a handprint on my heart" … I keep thinking about Manchester and will have it with me every day for the rest of my life.
- Grande got very emotional at the last soundcheck of the tour and cried with the whole crew on stage. When we talk about her time on the street, she said in tears, "There were so many things for all of us. When things were bad and all were heartbroken and tired and sad, we wished that it could be done faster Now that it's here, it's awful.
