    Ariana Grande plans to hold a benefit concert in Manchester, England, to raise money for victims of the deadly attack on her concert there Monday.

    She had suspended her world tour through June 5 following the bombing at the Manchester Arena, which left 22 dead.

    She wrote in a long statement posted to Twitter that details are still being finalized and she will "have details to share ... as soon as everything is confirmed."

    "Our response to this violence must be to come closer together, to help each other, to love more, to sing louder and to live more kindly and more generously than we did before," she said.

    Grande had kept a low profile since the blast. She took to Twitter afterward to say she was "broken" and "i don't have words."
