Ariana Grande breaks down during Australian 'Dangerous Woman' concert
It is clear Ariana is still grieving the Manchester Bombings
Last night, I went along to Ariana Grande's final Melbourne concert at Rod Laver Arena
The 24-year-old performed all of her fans favourite hits, ‘Break Free’, ‘One Last Time’ (my personal fav!), ‘Side to Side’ and many more.
We all stood in awe listening to her insane vocals, hitting pitches we can only attempt in the shower - apologies to all of our housemates. It's actually refreshing to go to a concert where a singer sounds the exact same live and on the radio.
However, there was one song that stood out from the rest - and it wasn’t one of Grande’s.
The pop sensation performed her cover of ‘Somewhere Over The Rainbow’, the song she dedicated to the fans who passed away at the Manchester bombings in May.
The majority of the audience struggled to fight back tears as Grande’s voice started to break as she sung the classic made famous by Judy Garland on 'The Wizard of Oz'.
She had stop singing and tried to pull her emotions together.
Her tears were heard through the microphone as the audience showed their support and cheered her on.
Grande had Melbourne fans in her back pocket when she proved she’d done her research and learnt how to pronounce the city’s name perfectly.
According to reports, Grande revealed to the crowd on Monday night she had been studying how to drop the ‘r’ in Melbourne:
"I did my homework for you guys.”
Grande has been a force of strength for the families of the victims and her fans, providing a benefit concert in Manchester after the explosion.
She also visited the patients in hospital and delayed her tour out of respect.
It’s beautiful that she dedicates a moment in all of her concerts to those victims and their families.
Stay strong Ari - we love you!
