Pop star Ariana Grande has vowed to return to Manchester for a fundraising show in honour of the families of victims killed in a bomb at show on Monday.
In a statement on Twitter, the singer said a number of other musicians had been in touch to offer their services for the concert, and details would be announced as soon as it is confirmed.
The bomb which killed 22 people went off at the end of her gig at Manchester Arena on Monday night.
The singer, who postponed the rest of her world tour in the wake of the tragedy, said she would think of the victims "with everything I do for the rest of my life".
She said she had been thinking of her fans "non-stop over the past week".
"The way you have handled all of this has been inspiring and made me more proud than you'll ever know.
"We will never understand why events like this take place because it is not in our nature, which is why we shouldn't recoil.
"We will not quit or operate in fear. We won't let this divide us. We won't let hate win."
Grande apologised to fan saying she she felt "broken" after the attack on May 22.
The 23-year-old said: "From the bottom of my heart, I am so, so sorry. I don't have words."

It comes in the wake of a suicide bomb attack on an Ariana Grande concert which killed 22 people and left dozens more seriously injured.

But, he warned: "We will not tolerate hate crime here in Manchester."
