British singer Marcus Mumford held a moment of silence before performing at the Manchester benefit concert Sunday.

The leader of rock band Mumford & Sons sang "Timshel" while strumming his guitar at the "One Love Manchester" concert, held at the city's Old Trafford cricket ground. The song includes the lyrics: "But you are not alone in this, and you are not alone in this, as brothers we will stand and we'll hold your hand."

Sunday's concert will raise money for victims of a suicide bombing that struck at the end of singer Ariana Grande's Manchester show May 22. The attack killed 22 and wounded dozens.

Others set to perform include Justin Bieber, Coldplay, Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus and Take That.

The show is being broadcast live across the globe.

Noon

Ariana Grande fans have begun arriving for the American pop singer's Manchester benefit concert, nervous but determined to show solidarity with the victims of the suicide bombing at an earlier Grande show in the city.

Fans Stacie Richardson and James Bend say there were shaken after the May 22 attack at Manchester Arena. But that wasn't going to stop them from coming back to show support for both Grande and the 22 people killed in the attack.

Richardson says Grande is "very brave to come back so soon."

They say the car and knife rampage in London on Saturday did little to ease their worries.

Linda Tipping and Laura Mayren, from Chorley in northwest England, say they were determined to enjoy themselves even as London was reeling.

Tipping says: "We can't let them stop us."

7:36 a.m.

Ariana Grande is scheduled to take the stage again Sunday in Manchester, England, for a star-studded benefit concert to help victims of a suicide bombing that struck her last concert and killed 22 people.

Grande will be joined by Coldplay, Justin Bieber, Katy Perry and many other top acts at the concert at the Old Trafford cricket ground.

The "One Love Manchester" concert will take place less than two weeks after the attack at Grande's concert, and a day after attackers killed seven people in the heart of London.

Other performers Sunday include Pharrell Williams, Take That and Marcus Mumford.

Proceeds from the show, which will broadcast live across the globe, will go to an emergency fund set up by the city of Manchester and the British Red Cross.
