She loves her fans!
Ariana Grande visited her fans in the hospital less than two weeks after the bombing at her concert in Manchester, England — which left 22 people dead. She returned to the city on Friday, June 2 ahead of her upcoming benefit concert on Sunday, June 4 — and she will be donating all of the proceeds to the families of the victims of the terrorist attack.
The 23-year-old shared a photo of herself chatting with one of the victims, a young girl with her hair in braids. In the shot, Ari knelt down on the floor and looked up at her fan's beaming face.
Ariana brought teddy bears and flowers for her young fans who were still being treated at the Royal Manchester Children's Hospital for the injuries they sustained after a suicide bomber set off a bomb just minutes after Ariana's concert on Monday, May 22 — and one fan, Evie Mills, even had to have surgery after sustaining a fractured skull. But the 14-year-old was thrilled that her idol Ariana came by to visit her in the hospital.
"It was so good. She just kept hugging us," she told the Mirror.
She also spent time with 8-year-old Lily Harrison and she showered the little girl with hugs and praise for being so brave during the attacks.
"I'm so proud of you," the "Dangerous Woman" singer told her young fan. "You are so strong. You are doing really well."

Ari also met with the families who lost loved ones in the attacks, according to The Telegraph. Dan Hett, the brother of 29-year-old Martyn Hett, took to Twitter to thank her.
"Endless respect to [Ariana Grande] for coming back to our city and meeting my family and so many others," he tweeted, sharing a photo of the pop star with his family members.
