On the night of 22 May, an audience made up mostly of teenage girls was attacked with a bomb as they left the Ariana Grande concert at Manchester’s MEN Arena. Footage from shortly before the blast shows fans singing along with Ms Grande. The song was One Last Time.
One Last Time
There is something truly heart-wrenching about hearing voices sing this song, for what was the last time for some of them. The song’s lyrics read:
So one last time
I need to be the one who takes you home
One more time
I promise after that, I’ll let you go
The footage taken at Monday night’s concert has moved many to tears in the wake of the attacks.
People have been sharing the footage (confirmed as authentic), across social media.
