“Broken. From the bottom of my heart, I am so so sorry,” she tweeted. “I don’t have words.”
“Words cannot express out sorrow for the victims and families harmed in this senseless attack. We mourn the lives of children and loved ones taken by this cowardly act,” reads a statement from Scooter Braun, Grande’s manager.
Universal Music, the group to which Grande’s record label belongs, paid tribute to those affected by the attack in a Facebook post earlier, saying that it is “deeply saddened to learn of tonight’s devastating event in Manchester.”
Politicians and other musicians have also expressed their grief and solidarity on social media. At least 59 others were brought to hospital after the attack, according to local emergency medical services, with many more treated at the scene.
