Ariana Grande to be given honorary citizenship of Manchester

Ariana Grande's contributions to Manchester are set to be recognised by awarding her citizenship of the U.K. city.

The 23-year-old singer organised the One Love Manchester concert to raise money for the victims of the terrorist attack at her gig at Manchester Arena just two weeks beforehand, in which 22 people died.

The concert, attended by around 50,000 people, raised almost $3.8 million (£3 million) for the victims, and now the council have proposed she should be honoured for her actions.

In a new system put forward by the city council, some people from outside of Greater Manchester could be given honorary citizenship of the city. This will be an additional method of honouring as well as the freedom of the city, which will remain the highest honour the city can give and has only been awarded four times this century.

Council leader Sir Richard Leese said that many would already consider Ariana to be an "honorary Mancunian", adding: "This seems a fitting moment to update the way we recognise those who make noteworthy contributions to the life and success of our city.

"We've all had cause to be incredibly proud of Manchester and the resilient and compassionate way in which the city, and all those associated with it, have responded to the terrible events of 22 May - with love and courage rather than hatred and fear."

He said that Ariana had "exemplified this response".

In addition, Manchester City Council will be holding an event later this year to recognise the "great many selfless acts and demonstrations of community spirit in the aftermath of the atrocity".

The plans for the new system of honours will be put before the council on 12 July.
