The world is a messy place right now, that much is clear. Between multiple violent acts of terrorism at home and abroad, a sense of complete political chaos that seems to be echoing all over the world, and everything in between, keeping up with all that's happening in the world right now is an almost impossible task. But as Ariana Grande's special benefit concert came to a close Sunday evening, many fans were wondering how to rewatch the One Love Manchester concert anyway — and rightfully so, as the event was rife with beautiful, awe-inspiring performances from start to finish. In short, it was the perfect distraction from real life that still did its job in unifying the public.
Luckily, it seems that the show will be available on YouTube immediately following the live coverage, and on Freeform later on. So if you missed it the first time around, there's still a chance to take it all in.
Sunday night, artists from all walks of life came together to pay tribute to the victims of the terrorist attack in Manchester nearly two weeks ago. On May 22, fans were leaving one of Grande's concerts when an explosion went off and killed 22 people. Scores more were injured. In the aftermath, Grande organized an incredibly beautiful and touching concert event to pay homage to those who died, and the entire world has a front-row seat.
The show wrapped up Sunday evening, and after being streamed live to YouTube, Twitter, and multiple other channels and sites, is available to watch again (and again) at any time.
As BBC reports, about 50,000 fans showed up to see performances from Grande herself, as well as Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry, Coldplay, Justin Bieber, Pharrel Williams, Mac Miller, and more. Songs were captivating, heartfelt, and emotional, with multiple artists breaking down in tears while performing.
The One Love Manchester event comes just hours after multiple incidents of violence occurred in London on Saturday, with an van attack and subsequent, connected restaurant stabbings leaving at least seven dead, not including the attackers. But that didn't stop dedicated fans from showing their pride and love, and attending the show, despite fears that another attack may be imminent.
All the funds raised from the One Love Manchester show will go toward the victims and those injured by the suicide bombing at Grande's concert in May. Currently, Grande's event has raised more than $2.6 million for the cause.
Despite how utterly tragic so much of the current news cycle is, when people come together in the name of love, nothing can stop them.
