In the aftermath of the attack, which also wounded 119 people, Grande tweeted her followers:

According to The Daily Mail, concert-goers said Grande’s mother Joan, who had been sitting in the front row, called as many as 10 children to follow her backstage and find safety. Joan and her daughter’s security team escorted a large group of fans out of the concert hall and into the dressing rooms.

Grande’s manager, Scooter Braun, stated, ‘Tonight, our hearts are broken. Words cannot express our sorrow for the victims and families harmed in this senseless attack. We mourn the lives of children and loved ones taken by this cowardly act.”

Grande has suspended her concerts in England, Belgium, Poland, Germany and Switzerland; TMZ reported she was “incapable” of performing her concert in London on Thursday night.
