Friday marks three years since a suicide bombing attack during pop singer Ariana Grande's Manchester, England, concert claimed the lives of 22 and injured 139 others. More than half the victims were children.
The "thank u, next" singer is reflecting on the heartbreaking events by sharing an open letter with fans, detailing how the events still weigh on her mind.
"I want to take a moment to acknowledge and send my love to everyone that is feeling the sadness and tremendous heaviness of the anniversary coming up this week," she wrote Wednesday via Instagram Stories. "Not a day goes by that this doesn't affect u and all of us still. I will be thinking of u all week and weekend."
Ending the post with a black heart and bee emoji, the 26-year-old also wrote, "My heart, thoughts, prayers are with u always."
Following the 2017 attack, Grande partnered with the Red Cross to organize the One Love Manchester benefit concert, which featured performances from Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, Coldplay and other acts. The benefit raised nearly $10 million for the families affected by the tragedy.
Last year, Grande opened up about how the bombing affected her, revealing in an August 2019 interview with "Vogue" that she had been traumatized.
In April 2019, she shared images of a brain scan that suggested she had post-traumatic stress disorder.
