Ariana Grande broke down in tears while closing out the One Love Manchester benefit concert Sunday night with a stunning performance of “Somewhere Over The Rainbow.”

The singer, who also performed a number of times throughout the show, began the final performance by first singing her song “One Last Time.” All the artists who participated in the show stood onstage with Grande, projecting a strong message of solidarity.

As she sang, Grande held her mic out to the crowd and they sang along to every word.

In what may have been the most powerful moment of the show, Grande performed “Somewhere Over The Rainbow” alone onstage. The stunning performance had many in the crowd in tears.

Grande herself was also overcome with emotion, breaking down before finishing the song. The crowd then erupted into cheers and the singer managed to get through the final bit beautifully.

Proceeds from the One Love Manchester benefit will go toward the victims and families affected by the tragic attack that took place at Manchester Arena last month during one of Grande’s concerts. A bomb was detonated at the arena, killing 22 people, including children, and injuring at least 59 others.

Following the attack, Grande said she was left feeling “broken.”

“My heart, prayers and deepest condolences are with the victims of the Manchester Attack and their loved ones,” Grande later wrote in a statement. “There is nothing I or anyone can do to take away the pain you are feeling or to make this better.”

She added, “The only thing we can do now is choose how we let this affect us and how we live our lives from here on out.”
