Pop singer Ariana Grande performed was back in Manchester, England on Sunday as she headlined the Manchester Pride Festival.

The concert marks the second time the singer has returned to Manchester following the horrific bombing that left 22 people killed and 25o injured, according to a report published by Entertainment Tonight.

Grande helped organize and performed at the One Love Manchester benefit concert less than a month after the bombing.

The “Thank U, Next” singer thanked fans for being there, BBC reported. (RELATED: Ariana Grande Becomes First Female To Reach 3 Billions Streams On 3 Albums)

“Manchester holds a very special place in my heart,” Grande told the crowd at the concert.

“I’m so happy to be with you, so thank you for having me,” she added. “Sorry, I’m so nervous. I had so much more to say but I’m really very overwhelmed. So thank you.”

She reportedly began her set with “No Tears Left To Cry,” which was the first single she released after the bombing. Other songs she sang during her set of nine songs included “7 Rings,” “Break Free” and “Break Up With Your Girlfriend, I’m Bored.”

I’ve seen some of the concert videos online and it looked pretty emotional. I can’t even imagine. What a beautiful moment to get to be a part of.
